The Australia-Singapore Military Training Initiative (ASMTI) will see the delivery of enhanced military training areas in Central and North Queensland. Under the ASMTI, Singapore will invest approximately AUD 2.25 billion for the Commonwealth to acquire, design, develop and construct military training areas through expanding the existing Shoalwater Bay Training Area (SWBTA) and establishing a new training area near Greenvale, in North Queensland. The construction work at the new training area near Greenvale is expected to be delivered in two phases, Early and Main Works.
To assist the Commonwealth of Australia (Commonwealth), represented by the Department of Defence, in considering the potential delivery of any, some or all of the early construction work described below at the new training area near Greenvale, the Department is conducting Market Sounding of potential Minor and Medium Works Contractors who may be invited to make a submission for a Limited Tender for these works. The information received by the Commonwealth from the Market Sounding may be used to help identify potential Early Works Contractors who may then be invited to make submissions as part of a Limited Tender for the Early Works.
The Early Works will likely be delivered first by one or more Minor or Medium Works Contractors and will likely include the following:
(ii) Demolition works (removing redundant infrastructure – internal fences, buildings, sheds, dams, bores and the like);
(iii) Contamination remediation works (removing rubbish tips, septic systems, asbestos, Petroleum, Oil & Lubricants (POL));
(iv) Tree clearance works (for fire breaks, or minor site clearance);
(v) Range control facility;
(vi) Fencing works (cattle style fencing: new and repairing existing);
(vii) Minor track construction / repairs works; and
(viii) Relocation of services (power, water, sewer).
This Market Sounding will ONLY apply to the Early Works described above.
Responses to Market Sounding
To assist the Commonwealth in identifying the Respondent and the categories of Early Works in which the Respondent has an interest, the Respondent is invited to provide the information requested in the Market Sounding Information Response Form at Schedule A of the attached Market Sounding of Early Works Contractors.
A completed Market Sounding Information Response Form may be sent to:
at any time prior to 12.00 noon AEST on 31 December 2022.
The submission by a Respondent of a Market Sounding Information Response Form relating to Early Works will not of itself prevent that Respondent from participating in the separate Main Works.
Information sessions will be held across the North Queensland region (including Charters Towers and Townsville) commencing in mid-October 2019 to discuss the Market Sounding process, early works packages and provide a general update on the ASMTI.
