CIMIC Group’s UGL and CPB Contractors have been awarded an early works contract by Powerlink for the CopperString 2032 project in North Queensland.

The $20 million early works package will cover detailed engineering design, field surveys, geotechnical surveys and geotechnical works.

This follows a previous Early Contractor Involvement (ECI) agreement awarded to the UGL and CPB Contractors Joint Venture (JV) in 2021 which included scoping, design, site investigations, pricing and progress of the design and construct contract.
