Construction simulator operator Kinsley Construction has been awarded a $1.6bn contract to build a $300m, 544-metre-high (1,664ft) tower at a new site in the city of Newcastle, New South Wales.
The project, dubbed the “Spiral” and dubbed “Ribbon” by Kinsler staff, is a collaboration between Kinslee Construction and the Newcastle City Council.
Construction simulator operator Kinsley Construction was awarded the contract to provide the crane, scaffolding and structural work on the site of the proposed “Ribe” development.
The crane and scaffolding work will be completed by December 2019.
Kinsler Construction is responsible for the design, engineering and design of the project.
It will be funded by the Newcastle Regional Development Authority, the NSW Government and the NSW Roads and Maritime Services (NSWRMS).
The $300 million, 543-metres (1.2 million feet) tower will be built on an undeveloped site next to the Newcastle city centre.
“This is a great opportunity to develop a brand new project that will be a world-class landmark, which will add significant value to Newcastle’s skyline and attract the world-renowned global brand of Kinsleys construction team,” Kinsling Construction’s managing director Andrew McWilliams said.
“It will have a major impact on the quality of life for the city and surrounding area, and will provide the foundations for a new era of urban renewal and economic development for the area.”
Kinslee Construction is one of the world leaders in the construction industry and is a subsidiary of Kiska Group, a leading global construction and engineering firm.
“I have known the Newcastle area for over a decade and we are very proud to be a part of the Kinslees heritage,” Kiskanews construction manager Tim Nunn said.

The $30 million (US$22.5m) crane was built by Kiskans Cranes in London, and is being used to erect the “Rife” tower.
“The crane is being brought in by a highly experienced crane manufacturer and will help us to deliver a world class crane that will help our new tower to the best possible specifications,” said Kinsleider Construction’s chairman Peter Nunn, who is based in London.
Kiska Construction is the company responsible for delivering the design and engineering work for the project, which has been in the planning stages for over 10 years.”

Kitsworth construction manager Mark Hockin said the crane and the scaffolding will provide much needed structural support for the “Ring” project.
“These are major engineering work, as well as some structural work and the actual crane.”
We have a great team here, with an outstanding reputation for excellence, and we look forward to the project delivering on all fronts,” Mr Hocklin said.
The construction is expected to take up to five years to complete.
The Newcastle City-run council has previously approved the tower as part of its “Riverscape” regeneration scheme, which aims to create a green space and create employment opportunities for Newcastle’s residents.
