Roy Hill awards $70 million infrastructure contract

Brookfield Multiplex has been awarded a $70 million contract to develop non-processing infrastructure at the Roy Hill mine in the Pilbara.

In a statement Brookfield said initial design work on the infrastructure – including workshops, admin buildings, and other on-site structures – will commence immediately and is slated for completion by 2014.

 

The start of construction is dependent upon Roy Hill finalising its debt finance.

 

The new work follows an existing $190 million contract to build a 2,000 person camp to accommodate mine workers, and Brookfield WA managing director Chris Palandri said the company's previous work at Roy Hill had helped it secure the latest contract.

 

“The quality of work we have completed in the accommodation village boosted our credentials for the contract, and we are thrilled to now be working on multiple components of the Roy Hill project,” he said.

 

Palandri said work on the infrastructure would be completed in stages to ensure both contracts were delivered on time.

 

“The contract will be split into three stages including project design, earthworks and civil works, followed by the procurement and fabrication of structures, then on site construction and delivery,” he said.
