The long-planned redevelopment of the old South Fremantle power station and surrounding land is billed as the biggest coastal urban redevelopment of its kind in WA. But the size of the project, intended to house 12,000 people as well as a new primary school, entertainment precinct and businesses over 106 ha, means it will take 15 to 20 years to realise.
Wormall Civil is proud to be the civil contractor of choice for Stage 1 of the first precinct, dubbed Shoreline. This precinct is planned to eventually provide some 2,500 homes, 10,800 m2 of commercial and retail space and a school. Built over 47 ha, it will also include a beach piazza, public square and school, involving a total investment of $1.1 billion.
Civil works on the former industrial site on the North Coogee coast, bound by the South Beach development to the north and the Port Coogee development to the south, started in April 2015. Stage 1 was finished within a year in early 2016. Ongoing works have been completed by Wormall Civil as a variation to the original contract due primarily to the company's successful performance on the original scope of works.
The heritage listed power station, which has been closed since the 1980s, will be redeveloped as part of the wider project to include apartments, commercial space and public open space.
Minister for Lands Terry Redman commented that the Cockburn coast redevelopment was "something that has never been attempted before in WA on this scale".
Charles Yelverton (C.Y.) O'Connor (1843-1902), engineer, was born on 11 January 1843 at Gravelmount, Castletown, Meath, Ireland. His statue with his horse which features above and on the site in a prominent loacation, epitomises excellence in engineering accomplishment and we salute his many fine achievements in Western Australia. Fremantle Harbour, the Perth to Kalgoorlie water pipeline and our railways network were all influenced by him.
Wormall Civil is extremely proud of its continuing record of delivering high quality engineering outcomes for its highly valued client LandCorp and we salute C.Y. O'Connor as an inspiration.
Lot 450 Vivadi Drive Mandurah is a small 11 lot subdivision nestled on the north eastern waters edge just south of the Mandurah Marina and the northern ocean entrance to the Mandurah/Peel waterways.
The succesful construction and delivery of of this small lot subdivision in tight confines and adjacent to close by existing residences proves that Wormall Civil is also capable of undertaking small as well as medium and large scale projects.
Moadora Bay is regarded by many as the most liveable land estate in Mandurah, primarily because of its beachside location and ease of access to Perth. Located just 10 minutes north of Mandurah, the suburb is fringed by the pristine shoreline of Madora Bay Beach.
The project has three distinct facets: the construction of a 64 lot residential subdivision, the upgrading of Madora Beach Road and the forward earthworks for Madora Bay North.

Beachridge Estate is situated approximately 200 km north of Perth’s CBD, almost equidistant from Perth and Geraldton on the Indian Ocean coast.
A focus by the developer and approval authorities on the principles of environmental sustainability, and in particular water sensitive urban design, helped underpin the development. The intention was to avoid transplanting ‘suburbia’ to this unique coastal location.
Strong prevailing winds with resulting dust presented construction difficulties, particularly during the early stages of bulk earthworks. Unprecedented contingency measures such as the installation of a...Read More >
