Wildara specialises in delivering and project managing offshore infrastructure to Government clients and is currently delivering a project in Kanchanaburi, Thailand for the Australian Department of Veterans’ Affairs. The project involves the design, contractor procurement and project and building management for the construction of a workshop facility for the maintenance of the Hellfire Pass Memorial Museum.
The Hellfire Pass Museum, funded by the Australian Government, serves as a memorial to honour all who suffered and died under severe circumstances as prisoners of war at the hands of the Imperial Japanese Army throughout the construction of the Burma-Thailand Railway during World War II, as well as a testament to those who survived and carry the burden of the suffering.
Tourism in the Kanchanaburi Provence area is one of the major sources of income for the local economy; the need to maintain infrastructure to preserve the historical significance of the area is paramount. Wildara is proud to deliver a fit-for-purpose workshop and associated infrastructure for the Memorials’ staff and visitors, contributing to the Hellfire Pass legacy and preserving Australian history.
