Construction Camps

Gladstone, Queensland Australia

We provided civil, electrical, building services and hydraulics engineering for several construction camps servicing the LNG facilities proposed for Curtis Island.

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

One of the major challenges of the project was to construct temporary camps whilst maintaining a high level of awareness and management of their environmental impact.

It is expected to house a start-up workforce comprising of 550 workers which is estimated to peak at more than 3,200 by mid-2012.

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.
