KBR awarded multiple Australian infrastructure services contracts
KBR has been awarded multiple contracts to provide professional services for major Australian infrastructure projects. KBR will provide engineering and design management services to John Holland for the AU$600M Mernda Rail Extension Project in Melbourne, Victoria. Construction is scheduled to commence in the coming months and will take approximately two years to complete, with trains expected to being running in early 2019. KBR was awarded a contract by the Managing Contractor, Doric Contractors, for hydraulic engineering services to upgrade water infrastructure at the HMAS Stirling Navy base in Western Australia as part of the Australian Department of Defence Stage 3A redevelopment project for the site. KBR is providing marine and maritime structural engineering services to the Laing O'Rourke Managing Contractor team responsible for the redevelopment of the HMAS Coonawarra Navy base and Larrakeyah Barracks in the Northern Territory. Revenue associated with the two Australian defense infrastructure projects was booked into E&C backlog in Q3.
