The NSW Government has appointed Laing O’Rourke to coordinate the clean-up of fire damaged residential and eligible commercial properties. This includes both insured and uninsured properties.
The clean-up of bushfire-impacted properties may include:
- Removal of known hazardous materials, including asbestos
- Removal of materials destroyed by bush fire and hazardous trees
- With the consent of building owners, removal of concrete slab foundations.
Laing O’Rourke will work with local subcontractors and regional small businesses to ensure they are engaged in the delivery of the clean-up process.
Laing O’Rourke is looking to engage local suppliers and subcontractors and would like to hear from anyone that may have capability and capacity to provide goods and/or services in affected regions. Through the duration of these works, Laing O’Rourke will be undertaking a number of information sessions with the local supply chain and communities to continue to provide updates about the program.

- The NSW Government has launched a new business portal and a concierge service to help local and regional businesses gain access to government agency procurement opportunities in fire-affected areas. See Tenders NSW. The portal on the Tenders NSW website will allow Government agencies and councils to upload details of available work so the whole supply chain is aware of upcoming opportunities.
