While Defence Estate opportunties are continually being released, this week we see a concentration of work being undertaken in Victoria. Three seperate packages of work are being undertaken at Simpson Barracks in Watsonia, another at Victoria Barracks in Melbourne, and another at RAAF Williams in Laverton. All RFTs are for building refurbishment works, and include painting, lighting, flooring, HVAC, electrical, roofing and gutter and down pipe rework among other minor works.
As with all Defence establishment work, there are a few aspects to be mindful of when preparing your tender:
– Security clearance for staff and impact of base access requirements
– Heritage implications on building refurbishments
– Operational requirements of the base
– Defence tailored contracting template
Opportunities at Simpson Barracks and RAAF Williams are all due on the 6th April 18, and the tender for Victoria Barracks is due on the 5th April 18. An industry brief is being offered at each site, and while not mandatory, is highly recommended. More details on bidding on Defence Estate Projects can be found here.
