FREMANTLE council has selected Pindan Constructions to build its new civic, administration and library building in Kings Square.
The new building, designed by the Kerry Hill Architects, is a key component of the broader $270 million Kings Square Renewal project – a joint initiative between the council and Sirona Capital.
“I’m delighted we’ve taken the next step forward in this very important project for Fremantle,” Fremantle mayor Brad Pettitt said.
“We will now be in discussion with Pindan to agree on terms and look forward to progressing these negotiations.
“Over the next month we will go through the process of ensuring maximum value for the Fremantle community before finalising the contract and the construction timeline.”
Pindan was one of six shortlisted companies selected to tender for the project.
“The renewal of Kings Square will transform the Fremantle city centre and this new building will be the centrepiece of that from a civic and community point of view – I expect the new building will become the heritage of the future,” Dr Pettitt said.
