Our people have been involved in some of WA’s most iconic Civil Infrastructure Projects. Since its inception in 2012, Civcon has successfully delivered over 200 projects.
KING STREET ROAD AND PUBLIC DOMAIN
The King St Road and Public Domain project involves extending King Street from Perth City into Northbridge, as the Perth City Link Project’s first ‘link’ to reconnect the Perth CBD with Northbridge. The overall project will create a new urban precinct to deliver a range of world-class residential, commercial, retail and tourism facilities. Works include earthworks and pavement works, installation of services and stormwater drainage pits, pipes, kerbing, precast concrete walls and timber cladding, and landscaping.
Wellington Street Stage 2B – South and Median Island and Associated Works
The significant stage planning conducted by Civcon to ensure safe pedestrian and stakeholder access was paramount to the project’s success, with several residences and business located adjacent to the work area. In consideration of pedestrians, the pavement was constructed in two halves; with one section of pavement being left for pedestrian movement until the first half of the new pavement was complete. Pedestrians were then moved onto the new pavement and the other half of the pavement was constructed. All works were completed with zero pedestrian closures or long-term traffic closures.
Wellington Street has played a significant role in the Perth City Link (PCL) Project, which will reconnect the CBD with Northbridge and create a new urban precinct with a range of world-class residential, commercial, retail and tourism facilities. The Wellington Street Stage 2B South and Median Island is one of the final components of the Perth City Link Project with works involving:
- Installation of a traffic median at Wellington Street, in between Little Milligan Street and King Street and the traffic island at King Street Intersection;
- Removal of existing concrete base and replacement with thick lift asphalt in the existing roadway
- Widening of existing footpaths; and
- Upgrading existing lighting in the southern half of Wellington Street, between King Street and William Street.
Millers Pool Restoration
The Millers Pool Restoration project was delivered under the City of South Perth’s Foreshore Strategy and Management Plan and aimed to improve the amenities, access and natural features of the Mill Point Foreshore. The multidisciplinary project incorporated engineering, landscaping, art, recreational and environmental components with finished works providing picnic and seating areas, new paths, a boardwalk and a small viewing jetty across the pool as well as newly planted native vegetation and trees. The project was recognised by the Australian Institute of Landscape Architects in being awarded its Prestigious Land Management Landscape Architecture Award.
Civcon has successfully delivered over 200 projects.
Fremantle Combined Services Project
The Fremantle Combined Services Project was one of the first projects in Australia to see two utility providers work collaboratively to concurrently renew their assets. The works involved the installation, testing and commissioning of the following services, including property connections as required:
- 1,280m of DN250 PE 100 PN16 Water Mains;
- 123m of DN180 PE 100 PN16 Water Mains;
- 54m of DN125 PE 100 PN16 Water Mains; and
- 1,135m of DN63 SDR17 PE Gas Mains;
Works were mainly undertaken using horizontal directional drilling with a portion of open cut as required. Civcon’s scope also included design and provision of all traffic management, reinstatement and stakeholder management services.
Rokeby Road Combined Services Project and Streetscape
This project was the first of its kind in Western Australia, where three utility providers/stakeholders/local governments have collaboratively procured for renewal of services through Rokeby Road in Subiaco. Water Corporation, ATCO Gas and the City of Subiaco engaged Civcon through the Principal, Water Corporation to undertake the works of all parties to upgrade the Water Mains, Street Lighting and Communications conduits respectively.

Following the Rokeby Road Combined Services Project, Water Corporation and ATCO Gas Australia again engaged Civcon to renew water mains and gas mains in a combined services project along Hay Street in West Perth

Elizabeth Quay Drainage, Services, Roadworks and Streetscape Project
The Elizabeth Quay Redevelopment brings Perth City and the Swan River together again, creating dynamic new entertainment and leisure precinct for Perth locals and visitors. The landmark project creates a true waterfront precinct and is at the heart of the plan to revitalise the Perth city centre. The redevelopment involved service installations and the construction of parks, promenades, and an island with a connecting bridge. Civcon was contracted to deliver the drainage, services, roadworks and streetscape packages of works, involving:
- 10,000m2 of paving;
- Installation of services including:
- Water reticulation;
- Gas service reticulation;
- Electrical and communications (including CCTV) conduit and pit installation;
- Private street lighting conduit and pit installation;
- National Broadband Network (NBN) conduit and pit installation;

Few other construction sites in Western Australia are more public and even fewer more iconic than the transformation of Elizabeth Quay
Perth City Link Services Scheme Staged 2A and 1B
This project involved the significant upgrade of services along Wellington Street, Kings Square, Milligan Street, King Street, Prince Lane, and Little Milligan Street to cater for the future demands of the Perth City Link Project.
350 Hay Street Subiaco Office Fit-Out
Civcon managed a complete fit out of its new 485m2 office premises located at 350 Hay Street in Subiaco. Civcon conducted the design, lodgement and approval processes for all fit-out activities including mechanical, hydraulic, lighting, and signage through the City of Subiaco.
The brief was to provide a modern, light and minimalistic space while still retaining all functions of a working office suitable for Civcon’s business needs. The duration of the fit-out activities was four weeks with all works delivered on time and within budget.
