With the $4 million procurement of the new fleet of plant and trucks made possible from a successful grant application, Jawoyn Contracting has the general civil work capability of a medium class earth mover with sufficient plant and trucks to engage in sealed road and pavement construction work anywhere within the Katherine region.
Jawoyn Contracting has selected in house operators and drivers that are competent, suitably licenced and interested in joining the Jawoyn Contracting Civil team prior to seeking new Indigenous employees from the outside. Training for First Aid, White Cards, Traffic Controllers, Plant Operator Tickets, and Truck drivers’ licences will be ongoing.
A significant benefit to the community will be additional employment for Indigenous operators and drivers with a significant upgrading of their skills in the earthmoving and civil engineering fields. Young office administration employees will be mentored and trained in construction and project management.
