Client: Gold Road Resources and Gold Fields Australia JV
Project name: 650 Person Gruyere Camp
Location: 153km North of Laverton
Project Duration: 8 months
The Gruyere project is Gold Road Resources first active mining development and thus they needed to keep capital costs to a minimum. This was achieved by Gold Road purchasing two 300-person Roy Hill camps in the Pilbara and awarding McNally Contracting the decommissioning, design and installation.
The decommissioning works included the dismantling of all buildings and services, prepare for and transport all of the buildings to Laverton which was 1,020kms away.
The design works included the camp layout, civils and engineering.
The installation and full turn-key construction of the new and refurbished 650-person camp included bulk earthworks, storm water, foundations and tie downs, electrical, hydraulic, mechanical, roads to North East Laverton and pathways, traffic management, sporting facilities and all other associated infrastructure.
By awarding McNally Contracting with the full turn key solution this provided Gold Road with one point of contact for the entire project. This helped improve efficiencies and reduced costs for the project overall.
