Pindan wins Fortescue contract at Iron Bridge

Pindan has won a $3.6 million contract for works at Fortescue Metals Group’s Iron Bridge magnetite project in the Pilbara region of Western Australia.

The contract will involve the design and construction of the landside airport for the project, which is a joint venture between Fortescue Metals Group subsidiary FMG Iron Bridge and Formosa Steel.

The construction and building company is familiar with the Iron Bridge project, having previously been awarded a contract for building installation at the Pilbara site in June.

Pindan executive director Tony Gerber said the works will commence in October and are expected to be finished by late December.

“We have a long and successful history of working in this part of Western Australia and are already on the ground at Iron Bridge, having been awarded a $3.4 million contract in June this year to design, supply and install a number of office buildings, as well as deliver associated infrastructure, at Fortescue’s Herb Elliot Port facility in Port Hedland,” Gerber said.

“This contract sees us manage civil works, design, and roadworks, and supply all resources, support facilities, labour and materials for this part of the project.

“It also includes the construction of a communications tower for the airport terminal building, as well as fitting out the airport.”

Pindan is a national property group that provides integrated property solutions across Australia through its property and building services.

Headquarterd in Perth, Pindan services include land acquisition, design and construction, development management, asset management and project marketing.

The $US2.6 billion ($3.6 billion) project  is set deliver high grade 67 per cent iron magnetite concentrate product with first ore on ship forecast for mid-2022.
