ICN helps to revitalise Central Dandenong
As part of the $290 million State Government funded Revitalising Central Dandenong (RCD) initiative, ICN has teamed up with Civilscape and Grocon Constructors to assist in the delivery of Places Victoria’s local business engagement program.
Civilscape Director Hayes Heffer says he is pleased to be working with ICN on the project and understands the benefits of having the company on board to identify and engage suppliers to maximise local industry involvement.
“The number and quality of nominees supplied by ICN has exceeded my expectations. Having ICN working with us on this initiative frees me up to keep the project on track.” he said.
$5.2M worth of contracts have been awarded to local companies — including Boral Quarries and TRJ Engineering to complete this project. For Boral this local project represents more than 770 truckloads of rock and keeping 20 men employed. The other local supplier, Hallam-based TRJ Engineering was one of the nominated suppliers for street furniture. 
In additional to this Grocon will be working on the new Government Services Building - a $73M contract that is in the final stages of fit out.
Grocon Project Manager, Andrew Poulton says “ICN has worked with Grocon to develop economic and employment activities and outcomes through the delivery of this project. With their assistance we were able to identify local suppliers who had the capability to supply to our specific work packages and exceed 79% minimum local content as specified in our VIPP Implementation Plan.”
