Subcontractor selected for $32M Melbourne quarantine facility

Multiplex has awarded a $32 million contract to supply modular buildings for a 1000-bed quarantine facility in Melbourne.

Fleetwood Limited was selected and will assist in the delivery of the Centre for National Resilience.

Under the subcontract arrangement, Fleetwood will use its manufacturing facilities in Victoria and Queensland to build modular accommodation units as part of Multiplex’s plans to deliver the first 500 beds by the end of 2021. The contract is expected to result in revenue of approximately $32 million for FY22.

The Centre for National Resilience at Mickleham, Victoria, will be built and owned by the Federal Government, and will be operated by the Victorian Government for the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic.
