Infrastructure deployment and project delivery group, Daly International Pty Ltd, has landed a $27.7 million contract with NBN Co to undertake the detailed work of connecting flats and units to the National Broadband Network in Western Australia, Brisbane and the Gold Coast.
The contract is for two years with the option of two one-year extensions.
In December, Downer EDI has been signed to connect multi-dwelling units (MDUs) in NSW, Victoria and the ACT, with Universal Communications Group Limited to provide connections in Tasmania and Sydney.
Daly International's operations span Australia and the UK and the telecommunications, power, water and gas sectors.
Under the contract, Daly International will provide project development services, including notifications to residents and owners’ corporations, survey, design and construction services.
NBN Co Chief Operations Officer, Ralph Steffens, said: ““The rollout to MDUs requires special attention because of the variety of buildings we need to design and build for, and because we need to engage with owners of existing buildings in order to undertake survey and installation activities.
“The job of contacting owners’ corporations is being made easier by an agreement reached with Strata Community Australia (SCA) which is helping us obtain relevant contact details. Representing over 2500 companies and individuals, SCA has set up a site allowing members and non-members to register for each building scheduled for installation via a secure online site.”
