nbn signs agreements for new housing developments and fibre links

13 October 2016

  • nbn signs two four-year Design and Construction Master Agreements  (DCMA) to cover new developments and fibre links.
  • Existing nbn Multi-technology Integrated Master Agreement (MIMA) delivery partners, Fulton Hogan and Visionstream, were announced following a competitive tender process.
  • Further progress in the nbn build, with these contracts representing the final Multi-Technology-Mix (MTM) construction agreements.
  • The DCMAs have been developed to allow combined design and construction delivery using a scale focussed, end-to-end, outcome based, performance driven model.

nbn has signed contracts with two delivery partners, and each will run over four years. The DCMAs will deliver the nbn™ network to new development premises using our MTM as well as to nbn’s fibre links that support the underlying infrastructure of the nbn™ network.

Following a multi-stage tender process, nbn has signed the last MTM construction agreements of the build with Fulton Hogan and Visionstream.

nbn Chief Network Engineering Officer, Peter Ryan, said:

“These new DCMA agreements provide us with the agility to deploy the nbn™ network to new homes in greenfield developments and in-fill brownfield areas,” said Mr Ryan.

The DCMAs will support the deployment of the nbn™ network to an estimated 450,000 new development premises and 150 transit fibre links nationally.
