The Department of Finance has selected the Indigenous owned company, Barpa, to design and construct the John Gorton Campus Car Park in Parkes, ACT, following a competitive procurement process.
Barpa has delivered a range of construction projects across remote, regional, and urban areas in Australia.
This procurement outcome, valued at $80.8 million, demonstrates the Government’s strong commitment to supporting Indigenous business.
The John Gorton Campus Car Park is an enabling project to the development of the National Security Office Precinct Project.
The multi-level John Gorton Campus Car Park will provide approximately 1,100 car spaces and will also include a childcare centre and electric vehicle charging stations.
Following recent government approvals, the construction of the John Gorton Campus Car Park is anticipated to commence in mid-2023.
