Contacting the Facility Manager

Companies that wish to benefit from using the facilities at the CUF should contact the facility manager, AMC Management (WA) Pty Ltd.

AMC Management (WA) Pty Ltd personnel, experienced in the construction and operation of Large Made to Order Projects, are available to assist in a number of ways:

  • Assist in the formulation of productivity improving strategies for user projects;
  • Answer questions about the CUF's facilities and commercial principles to supplement information that is available on this website;
  • Indicate the availability of the different CUF facilities;
  • Provide presentations of the capabilities of the CUF and conduct site tours to both users and their clients;
  • Explain policies and requirements associated with health, safety, environment, operations and employee management for the facility; and
  • Suggest local contacts to help companies do business at the facility.

When a company has evaluated the CUF and wishes to lease all or part of the CUF, it will advise AMC Management Pty Ltd and a User Agreement will be prepared. The User Agreement defines the commercial relationship between LandCorp, AMC Management (WA) Pty Ltd (LandCorp's agent for the operation of the CUF) and the company wishing to use the CUF.

Apart from the normal liabilities, it will also define the specific facilities the company wishes to lease, the duration of the use and the schedule of rates to apply to the lease.

Before a lease is approved or a company has access to the facility, the User Agreement must be approved and it is necessary for the company to demonstrate that it has satisfactory occupational health and safety, environment and employee management plans in place.

Key principles associated with access to the facility are defined in the User Access Management Plan.

Thank you for your interest in the Common User Facility.
