Centre for National Resilience - Melbourne Project (Quarantine Facility)

The Centre for National Resilience, will meet Victoria’s need for a purpose-built alternative accommodation facility to support the safe return of Australians from overseas and ensure the safety of the Australian community.

Tranche 1 for the Centre for National Resilience, Melbourne will be a new 1,000 bed centre at Mickleham. 

The Centre will be built and owned by the Federal Government but will be operated by the Victorian Government for the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The project includes modular buildings to provide accommodation to single people, couples and family groups.

Multiplex’s Role

Multiplex has entered into a Managing Contractor Contract (MCC) with the Australian Government Department of Finance to deliver the Centre for National Resilience, Melbourne. The MCC requires that Multiplex engage Subcontractors to deliver the Works.

To increase opportunities available to Subcontractors and Suppliers, Multiplex has identified a number of work packages which it can engage through a two-stage tender process. This first stage, the Invitation to Register Interest (ITR), will enable the Project to short-list organisations to be invited to a Request for Tender (RFT). The two-stage tender process increases opportunities for companies to tender for the works.

The Subcontracts Trades are being procured across two Priorities. A Work Package is shown for each Priority with multiple trades in each. Respondents can apply for one or more trades within a Priority in their response:
