It was privilege to listen to and learn from Aboriginal elder, Nick Abraham of Warrang Bridil, as he welcomed guests to Nyungar Country and led the smoking ceremony to cleanse the AMC 1 Wharf Extension project site.

Nick shared his story, the story of his people and the land on which we met in a ceremony that connected with the hearts and minds of Ertech leadership and guests and highlighted the importance of Healing Country.

“Before commencing construction on site, it was really important to the Team to acknowledge the traditional owners of the land and understand the history of this land. We appreciated Nick’s insightful story”, said Ertech CEO, James Giumelli.

DevelopmentWA awarded Ertech the Wharf Extension Project, which includes the design and construct of a 140m wharf extension, upgrade of existing services and the design of the New Finger Wharf AMC 7 and 8.

The project has been identified under a State developed, Strategic Infrastructure and Land Use Plan (SILUP), which provides a plan to satisfy short, medium and long-term requirements for the Department of Defence and other commercial and resource users.

Ertech is excited to continue to deliver strategic project’s for DevelopmentWA that enhance WA’s infrastructure for the community.
