Broadspectrum has extended contracts with the Australian Department of Defence and energy company Shell-QGC, strengthening its presence in the facility management and energy sectors.

The company will carry out a wide range of services on sites nationally for the Australian Department of Defence for $450 million (300 million euro). Broadspectrum will be responsible for the estate maintenance, cleaning, catering, and stores and warehouse management and other specialist services such as environmental management, rescue and firefighting, aircraft refuelling and management of petrol, oil and lubricants. The contract was first awarded in 2014 for a six-year term, and has now been extended by one year, until 2021.

In addition, Broadspectrum, through its subsidiary Easternwell, has been awarded a one-year extension with Shell-QGC (until December 2018) in a contract providing 12 rigs for  well services in the Coal Seam Gas fields in Queensland.

Broadspectrum is also part of the Western Roads Upgrade project, a $1.8 billion project in Melbourne, which was recently awarded to the Netflow consortium, formed by Cintra and Plenary. The company, with Amey, will carry out rehabilitation and maintenance services over 260 kilometres of urban roads for 20 years. This is the first road maintenance contract awarded to Broadspectrum since its acquisition by Ferrovial in May 2016.
