Perth Airport: The new runway project is a complex, large scale civil engineering project that will take between four and five years to construct, including airspace design and testing.
Elizabeth Quay: The Towers construction project is one of the major projects connected to the rejuvenation of Elizabeth Quay, designed to create a ‘gateway experience’ that links directly to tourist attractions while creating a hub for both residents and visitors to enjoy.

Riverside: This project will transform the eastern gateway to the city. The project includes a mix of residential, commercial and public spaces which capitalise on the unique river-front setting to become a cosmopolitan waterfront community and tourist destination.
Perth Stadium: A new multi-million dollar pedestrian walkway connecting East Perth to the 60,000 seat Perth Stadium is spurring on development in the new inner-city hub.
