The Kent, Gladstone, Queensland
The buildings team has created a modular solution – both structural and services - for mining accommodation and is delivering it in Gladstone.
The mining boom and energy and gas sectors are currently sucking dry resources both in terms of materials and manpower, leaving local trades in short supply. With many mining facilities simple tin sheds with shared facilities, modular construction could deliver a quality product where materials are at a premium and provide workers with a much higher level of accommodation than they currently experience.
This approach has also improved OH&S issues; sped up delivery times; and reduced client costs
