Cbus Property has appointed national tier-one construction company Probuild as Preferred Contractor to construct a purpose built facility to accommodate Victoria Police headquarters at 311 Spencer Street.
The development is a joint venture between Cbus Property and Australia Post.
Probuild Victorian Managing Director Luke Stambolis said he is very proud of his team for developing the winning tender.
“The tender process was extremely competitive. Probuild was chosen because we have the technical capability and resource capacity to successfully deliver major projects in Victoria,” said Mr Stambolis.
“This construction is of major significance to Victoria and the commercial building industry. We are thrilled to be working with Cbus Property and Victoria Police to deliver such an important project.
”Probuild’s Group Managing Director, Simon Gray, was also incredibly pleased with the result.
“Typically our largest markets have been in retail and residential sectors, however we’ve been preparing to enter large-scale commercial and civic projects by seriously adding to our technical and resource capabilities for a long time now.” Mr Gray said.
The 39 level, 65,000sqm commercial tower will include a purpose built fitout to Victoria Police requirements that will increase efficiency and improve law enforcement in Victoria.
Probuild expects to begin site works mid-May 2017, with work expected to be completed by the end of 2019.
