In early 2020, the Downer FKG Joint Venture commenced delivery of the Shoalwater Bay Remediation Project. The project aims to update existing facilities on the Shoalwater Bay Training Area to:

  • enable continued environmental sustainability for Australian Defence Force exercises.
  • meet the Department of Defence’s obligations to manage the area for both military operations and environmental conservation.
  • increase Defence’s Amphibious training capability.
  • enhance the quality and longevity of existing infrastructure for air, sea and land manoeuvres into the future.

The project’s work has seven main areas:

  1. Urban Operations Training Facility
  2. Williamson Camp Development
  3. Williamson Airfield Upgrade
  4. Field Hospital Site Upgrade
  5. Dingo Drive Remediation
  6. Freshwater Beach Landing Area Remediation
  7. Remediation of selected Creek Crossings

Downer and FKG Group joined forces to form the Downer FKG Joint Venture to deliver the Remediation Project. This Joint Venture brings together the local knowledge and agility of FKG Group with the large infrastructure project experience of Downer. As a Managing Contractor, Downer FKG engages subcontractors to perform the works, managing and coordinating their efforts.

Downer FKG has targeted at least 80% of contracts going to local firms.

To deliver the Remediation Project, Downer FKG has established a couple of camps on the Shoalwater Bay Training Area and staff and contractors stay in these camps for their 10 days on, 4 days off work rotation. The camp provides good quality accommodation, food, gymnasium and other facilities for use while in residence.
