NSW bushfire recovery clean-up

The NSW Government and the Commonwealth are jointly covering the clean-up costs of residential and eligible commercial properties destroyed in the NSW bushfires since 1 July 2019. Laing O’Rourke Australia has been appointed as the managing contractor, responsible for managing the clean-up of properties across NSW, working with Public Works Advisory. Qualified local contractors and suppliers will be engaged, where possible, to deliver clean-up services to ensure the clean-up operation maximises local knowledge and expertise and assists local economic recovery.

Impacted property owners who would like their property cleared need to register at Service NSW or call 13 77 88. Registering helps deploy resources to communities and enables owners to provide consent for crews to undertake work on their property.

Local subcontractors who have already contacted Public Works Advisory, Service NSW and NSW Procurement, or are already prequalified on a relevant State Government scheme, will have their details provided to Laing O’Rourke. Interested subcontractors are also encouraged to register on Laing O'Rourke's supplier platform.
