Cockburn projects recognised statewide for Construction Excellence


Projects in the City of Cockburn picked up three awards at the 2017 Master Builders Bankwest Excellence in Construction Awards last month.

The $109M Cockburn ARC took out two awards while Cockburn Police Station picked up one.

Both buildings are located in Cockburn Central, a thriving activity centre 19km south of the Perth CBD.

The ARC, which includes an aquatics zone, six-court stadium and health club and incorporates Fremantle Football Club’s new HQ and training facility, was named the Best Public Use Building over $20M.

Commercial Aquatics Australia, which helped in the design, construction, service, maintenance and water treatment of the ARC’s pools was named Subcontractor of the Year at the prestigious annual awards.

Cockburn Police Station was named Best State Government Building.

City of Cockburn Mayor Logan Howlett said Mayors, Shire Presidents, Councillors, CEOs and other local government staff from across the State took the opportunity to visit Cockburn ARC during 2017 WA Local Government Convention (2-4 August) and were suitably impressed.

“It certainly had the wow factor for them and the judges involved in the Master Builders Excellence Awards,” Mayor Howlett said.

“Cockburn Police Station is another ‘state of the art’ building that reflects modern policing and the high standard of buildings and amenity in Cockburn Central.

“The Department of Emergency Services Emergency Services Complex opened in 2012 is another great example of how the State Government is responding to the challenge of providing impressive and functional facilities for its employees.

“Commercial Aquatics Australia should be justifiably proud given the significance of the aquatic aspect at Cockburn ARC and the opportunities for people of all ages to use the facilities on a scale that meets their needs.

Mayor Howlett said an increasing number of people were choosing to call Cockburn Central home.
“Cockburn Central is proving to be a place for people to establish their home, business or to work in a locality that offers so much more in terms of accessibility, commercial, retail, recreation & local employment opportunities.”
