Laing O'Rourke secures Opera House works contract

Laing O’Rourke Australia has won a competitive tender for Early Contractor Involvement (ECI) in the Sydney Opera House’s Stage 1 Building Renewal program, which comprises $250 million of projects to be carried out over the next five years.

The program is the largest package of works since the Opera House opened in 1973. It includes upgrades to the Opera House‘s two largest internal performance spaces, the Concert Hall and Joan Sutherland Theatre, as well as upgrades to the entry and foyers and new creative learning and function centres.

Under the ECI contract, Laing O’Rourke will work with the Opera House and its design teams to ensure the program is as efficient as possible and provides the best value for money. 

Sydney Opera House chief executive officer Louise Herron said the first project to reach construction will be the upgrade of the Joan Sutherland Theatre.

This theatre will be closed from May to December 2017 to replace its end of life equipment.
