Sirona Capital has appointed Australian contractor Probuild to deliver the Kings Square Fremantle project.
Sirona Capital’s $220 million Kings Square Fremantle project will deliver 25,800 square metres of new commercial office and retail space to Fremantle’s CBD plus a new $50 million administration and civic centre for the City of Fremantle.
“Probuild is delivering the Towers and Ritz Carlton at Elizabeth Quay and NV Apartments in the Perth CBD,” Sirona Capital Managing Director Matthew McNeill said.
Construction is expected to commence in August 2017 with completion due mid-2019.
In its entirety the new cultural precinct in Kings Square will include:
- A revamped city square complete with grassed areas, public art and new street furniture
- A major new children’s playground
- High-quality retail, commercial and hospitality spaces
- A new state-of-the-art library and visitor centre
- New City administration building with purpose-built indoor and outdoor community spaces and meeting rooms
- End of trip bike facilities
- Fully accessible toilets with baby change facilities
- New lighting and CCTV.
Over time the Kings Square cultural precinct redevelopment will be integrated with other urban design projects managed by the City including the enhancements of Queen, Point and Adelaide Streets and a new public space near the Fremantle Train Station.
More than 1500 Western Australian Government employees from the Housing Authority, Department of Corrective Services and Department of Transport will relocate to Kings Square Fremantle from early 2020, following fit-out.
“We’re constructing an extensive amount of commercial space nation-wide, and we understand the demands of Government tenants and mixed-use projects,” Probuild WA Managing Director Sam Delmenico said.
Probuild plans to begin as early as possible in order to lock down schedules and targets with Sirona and the consultant team.
Probuild is one of Australia’s largest construction companies with a national pipeline of projects worth $5 billion and an annual turnover of more than $2 billion.
