Project gets rolling

BENCHMARK Projects Australasia will provide consultancy services for the Quinns Rocks Caravan Park redevelopment.

Wanneroo City Council accepted the company’s $164,000 tender application at its December 10 meeting to manage the first stage of the project at the Mindarie facility.

The consultant will liaise with the City’s planners on a development application for chalets, prepare a brief and scope of work for two tenders, namely to buy and install prefabricated chalets and to provide earthworks, roads and services.

A report considered by the council said nine companies submitted expressions of interest and three of those were requested to tender, with their prices ranging from $160,500 to $168,000.

It said the first stage required relocation of the caravan park’s long-term residents into 12 one-bedroom chalets.

The City has allocated $900,000 this year to the redevelopment, and stage two will require a consultant to develop plans to upgrade the facility into a ‘typical modern caravan park’.
