Contact Group is starting the year on a high, commencing work on several new maintenance contracts around the state.

In December, our maintenance division in Hobart was successful in being awarded the City of Hobart Plumbing Maintenance Contract.

This two-year contract has the potential to be extended to four years and has resulted in us hiring more full-time employees to expand our plumbing portfolio.

Contact Group’s State Service Manager, Dean Medwin, said it’s an exciting contract for us to win, comprising 29 different sites around Hobart, with infrastructure needing to be maintained everywhere from Salamanca Place to the top of kunanyi/Mount Wellington.

“Our staff have really hit the ground running and have been kept busy over the festive and summer season,” he said.

The kunanyi toilets are the busiest public toilets in Hobart.

“With the influx in tourists, it’s imperative sites are maintained to the highest standard,” Mr Medwin said.

Contact Group’s Managing Director, Wade Fromberg, said it’s a great opportunity for Contact Group to seriously enter the plumbing maintenance space and compliments the plumbing maintenance work we’re already doing for other large clients such as Mission Australia and TasNetworks.

In addition to the City of Hobart contract, Contact Group has also recently won the Macquarie Point Fire & Electrical Maintenance Contact, the Lady Gowrie Fire and Electrical Maintenance Contract, the Multicap Fire and Electrical Maintenance Contract and the Anglicare Mechanical Maintenance Contract.

Mr Fromberg said Contact Group’s Maintenance Division has gone from strength to strength with our clients extremely impressed with all aspects of contract delivery, from response times to customer service and quality of work.

In the north of the state, Contact Group has recently commenced work on a number of exciting projects, including the Launceston General Hospital’s new Helipad project, the new Legana Primary School and a major renovation of St. John’s Anglican Church.

Congratulations to all our staff – 2024 is shaping up to be another exciting year for Contact Group.
