ADG provided the design for environmentally-sensitive temporary accommodation facilities to house a construction workforce of over 2000, in the Gladstone region.

 

ADG were engaged for Structural, Civil, Hydraulic and Building Services engineering for several construction camps servicing the LNG facilities proposed for Curtis Island.

Gladstone Construction Camps

STRUCTURAL / CIVIL & ENVIRONMENTAL / HYDRAULICS / BUILDING SERVICES / MINING AND RESOURCES

Gladstone, Queensland

Located off the coast of Gladstone, Queensland, the temporary accommodation facilities are design to house the majority of a non-local construction workforce, working in conjunction with accommodation facilities on the mainland.

A significant amount of coordination was required to address the master-planned engineering services for the island, including assimilation into the stormwater network. ADG proposed improvements to the master-plan to improve upon the original concept design in terms of accessibility and construction cost for our clients section of the project.

ADG provided real innovative design that allowed for a faster construction program by specifying site specific products suitable for remote work and a smaller workforce. The construction camps provide not only accommodation, but also recreation and health facilities for construction workers and their families, including a pool, gym, outdoor sports court and administration buildings.

An extremely tight delivery and construction schedule required the day to day involvement of our leadership team, as well as production of tender drawings and negotiations. The scale of the project required detailed negotiation with the Project Managers and Bechtel in conjunction with our client, ATCO.
