Corfield’s Electrical is known for building strong, professional relationship within the Australian Supply Chain, and as a result have been involved in some of Australia’s largest construction projects.
In 2011, Corfield’s were subcontracted by ATCO to undertake electrical works for the construction of a Temporary Workers Accommodation Facility (TWAF) for the Gladstone LNG project on Curtis Island. The successful completion of this subcontract led to an opportunity on the Wheatstone LNG Project in Western Australia in 2014. ATCO were delivering a contract for the construction of onsite modular buildings and facilities for the Wheatstone Gas Plant in Onslow, Western Australia. Corfield’s were successful in securing a $2.5 million subcontract for the supply of electrical, instrumentation, telecommunications and civil installation associated with the installation of the new modular building facilities for the construction of this project.
The delivery of this subcontract proved the viability of Corfield’s Electrical entering the Western Australia market. A second opportunity then arose on the Wheatstone site, as ATCO were tasked with the expansion of the existing 4,000 person workers construction village. Corfield’s Electrical secured a further subcontract in 2015 for the design, supply and installation of the high voltage reticulation, low voltage reticulation, and communications systems including GPON, PAGA, fire detection and CCTV which ultimately has been worth $22 million.
The award of this subcontract allowed Corfield’s to expand into a new market, remain competitive and maintain their staff levels within the changing economic environment in Gladstone. While the business is well known within Central Queensland, the Wheatstone project was the first that Corfield’s had carried out in Western Australia. Corfield’s Electrical were also able to employ an additional 50 project staff for the period of these subcontracts. This team was made up of supervisors and electrical personnel from Corfield’s Electrical Gladstone office as well as electrical personnel from across Australia.
All projects where successfully completed within the time and operational constraints set down by the primary contractor.
