Moving from a regionally-based model, the national building team will be led by David Lehmann and take responsibility for all John Holland’s building opportunities.
“This is an exciting phase in John Holland’s growth and elevates the role of building in the company’s future business strategy,” Mr Lehmann said.
“We are already an established tier 1 player in the infrastructure space, delivering the country’s largest transport projects, including Sydney and Melbourne Metro and West Gate Tunnel. As we grow John Holland, we’re focused on maintaining this leadership position and expanding our property development and building arms.”
John Holland already has a proud history in building, delivering iconic projects such as Canberra’s Parliament House and the National Portrait Gallery. We have recently completed the award winning 1 Parramatta Square development and Ravenhall Prison in Victoria.
Current major building projects underway include:
• Green Square Library & Plaza, NSW
• Grafton Correctional Centre, NSW
• Lismore Hospital, NSW
• Royal Hobart Hospital, Tasmania
• Calvary Hospital Adelaide, South Australia
• Melbourne Airport Terminal Upgrade Works, Victoria
• Autohaus Newstead, Queensland
• St Andrews Hospital Ipswich, Queensland
“This latest move to a national building group allows us to better leverage skills and expertise across a national platform to support our clients. As our focus in building grows, I expect our portfolio to grow with it,” Mr Lehmann said.
“Our focus will be primarily on commercial, corrections, education and health sector opportunities. Our expanding property development portfolio will also generate work for the team, with current projects underway to redevelop a 3.2ha site in Macquarie Park and a high profile commercial tower on 275 George Street, Sydney.”
