Pindan is helping kick goals for businesses and residents in northwest Western Australia while spearheading a $55 million project for Woodside.
The project to refurbish about 400 of the North West Shelf Project’s homes in Karratha began in July 2017.
Pindan Contracting Managing Director Tony Gerber said, together with majority Indigenous-owned northwest-based company H&M Tracey, the group was set targets to secure at least 80 percent of goods and services from the City of Karratha.
Another key aim was to see more than 30 percent Indigenous participation through training and employment, and we’re thrilled to say we’ve achieved these goals. So far, more than 95 percent of goods have been sourced from the City, 24 local sub-contractors have been engaged and 51 Indigenous workers have been employed across the programTony Gerber, Managing Director – Pindan Contracting
Mr Gerber said the initiative had been incredibly important to local business, suppliers and workers.
“This has been a quieter time for many established northwest companies and this program has been critical in helping sustain them and ensuring job security,” he said.
The refurbishment project will continue through until next year.
