East Perth Power Station early works completed
RJV has completed the early works contract for the revitalisation of the heritage-listed East Perth Power Station.
The contract for DevelopmentWA comprised the demolition of the existing rail coal-tipper and conveyor structure and gas pressure reduction station to enable ongoing works within the greater East Perth Power Station site.
The works were conducted around priority ATCO high pressure gas and Western Power 132kv works, which imposed upon the RJV site.
Adding to the complexity, the site is heritage listed and nearby to a former Aboriginal heritage site. RJV coordinated the demolition work with DevelopmentWA, Department of Planning Lands and Heritage and Whadjuk traditional owners.
All items of heritage significance were retained for use in future landscaping or architectural elements of the revitalised site and all existing heritage elements adjacent to the works were protected.
The five month long scope of work, which began in August 2022, was essential to help transform the neglected 8.5ha East Perth Power Station precinct into its proposed mix of residential, commercial, recreational and tourism opportunities.
RJV CEO Tim Ryan said: “The East Perth Power Station joins Subiaco Oval and Princess Margaret Hospital in our growing portfolio of high-profile urban renewal projects. We appreciate DevelopmentWA trusting us with these culturally significant sites.”
