CPB Contractors, a subsidiary of Australia’s largest contractor, Cimic, has been awarded a US$317m contract to design and built Sydney Metro City & Southwest Pitt Street station.
The project is part of the Sydney Metro, Australia’s biggest public transport project, the first stage of which, Sydney Metro Northwest, opened in June.
CPB Contractors will also work with Canadian real estate firm Oxford Properties Group on the design and construction of the two 39-storey buildings above the station, one of which will be a commercial office development and the other a build-to-rent residential property.
Juan Santamaria, CPB Contractors’ managing director, said: "Award of this project consolidates CPB Contractors’ position as a leading contractor delivering Sydney Metro, building on our work on Sydney Metro Northwest and Sydney Metro City & Southwest.
"Importantly, this is also a major step in the expansion and success of CPB Contractors’ building sector, working across key commercial, health and community facilities."
Work on the project will begin in 2020 and is expected to be concluded in 2023.
