PACT Construction has come a long way since its establishment in 2004. The past year alone has seen PACT embark on some of their most ambitious and high profile projects to date, driven by a dedicated team that has doubled in size.
“We currently employ a record high 64 staff, which is double the number at around this time last year,” said Jason Kunkler, General Manager, PACT Construction.
“We are enjoying the challenges presented by the major projects we currently have underway including 999 Hay Street in the Perth CBD, Banksia Grove High School and the Edith Cowan University Student Services building in Joondalup. We also recently completed ONE70 Railway Parade in West Leederville.
“The ONE70 Railway Parade building, which we delivered in partnership with QUBE, was not only incredibly interesting and challenging - it also allowed us to demonstrate our attention to detail and quality craftsmanship. We were commissioned to complete over 4,500sqm of modern, state-of-the-art office fit out for major tenants, the WA Local Government Association and insurance specialist JLT.
“We are also partnering with QUBE again to deliver 999 Hay St, a $50 million project that will prove our ability to successfully build within the tight, hectic confines of the Perth CBD. Once finished, this landmark building will achieve both a 4 Star Greenstar rating and 4.5 Star NABERS Environmental Efficiency rating, enhanced by a cutting-edge architectural façade.”
This significant project forms just part of the 17 that PACT currently have underway, which will see the company deliver close to $250 million worth of projects in the 2013-14 financial year – a staggering feat for an emerging second tier company.
PACT’s surging size and incredible project success rate can be attributed to the strong growth strategy developed internally over the past three years.
“We’ve worked hard to get ourselves in a position where we can expertly deliver such exciting, sizeable projects. That said, we’re also extremely mindful of maintaining our small business feel, and will continue to strive to uphold this approach no matter how large we grow,” affirmed Mr Kunkler.
As General Manager of PACT Construction, Mr Kunkler’s success in shaping the company can be attributed to his strong technical and financial knowledge and intuitive ability to develop a high performing team.
As Mr Kunkler prepares to see PACT into its 10th year of operation this year, this remarkable company can firmly take its place as a standout leader in WA’s commercial construction industry.
