MG Group wins build ten­der

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - PENINSULA SNAPSHOT CITY OF SOUTH PERTH -

THE Bilya Kard Boodja Look­out in River­vale will be up­graded af­ter the City of Belmont awarded a ten­der of $1.2 mil­lion to the MG Group con­struc­tion com­pany.

The com­pany was one of six to ten­der for the re­de­vel­op­ment and was awarded the ten­der at the coun­cil’s last meet­ing on May 24.

A coun­cil re­port said the com­pany had un­der­taken sim­i­lar works in­clud­ing in­stalling play­grounds, steel struc­tures, soft works and ir­ri­ga­tion sys­tems.

“Ref­er­ence checks on MG Group and two other ten­der­ers were car­ried out,” the re­port said.

“The re­sponses re­ceived re­in­forced the Eval­u­a­tion Com­mit­tee’s view that MG Group was best qual­i­fied to un­der­take the con­struc­tion of the park­land at Bilya Kard Boodja Look­out.”

The coun­cil re­jected a bid, four votes to three, to in­clude con­struc­tion of toi­lets, bar­be­cues and parking fa­cil­i­ties, af­ter a pro­longed dis­cus­sion.

Coun­cil­lor Robert Rossi said toi­lets and bar­be­cues could be in­stalled at a later date if there was a proven de­mand for them.

Lo­cal res­i­dents were op­posed to the fa­cil­i­ties be­cause of con­cerns about anti-so­cial be­hav­iour in the area.
