Contractor Announced for Waterfront Stage 2 Project
The District Council of Grant is pleased to announce the appointment of Gambier Earth Movers as the head contractor for the Waterfront Stage 2 project at Port MacDonnell.
The contract with Gambier Earth Movers was readily agreed to by Council due the knowledge and experience gained from Stage 1 as well as the use of local contractors and the level of workmanship previously demonstrated. The contract also includes an update to the Standish Street intersection and a new shelter and picnic seating on Sea Parade.
Engineering Manager at Gambier Earth Movers Adam Maywald said that the project is a welcomed boost.
“During these uncertain times of COVID-19 the Waterfront Stage 2 will form a significant part of our works program going forward for the latter part of this year. A significant portion of our employees, all who live locally, had the opportunity to assist with the Stage 1 works, building a personal connection with the project goals, feeling like they were contributing to something that would be admired by the public for many years to come, and they are relishing the opportunity to do the same with Stage 2.”
“We thank the District Council of Grant for again keeping their investment local, and look forward to continuing to contribute to this landmark community project for the Limestone Coast region".
