Brookfield Multiplex’s engineering and infrastructure division has won a $190 million contract to build an accommodation village at Hancock Prospecting’s Roy Hill iron ore mine in the Pilbara.
The contract has a duration of 15 months, and will see Brookfield construct onsite accommodation for 2,000 construction and mine workers at Roy Hill, creating around 200 jobs.
Facilities at the state-of-the-art camp will include a sports complex, swimming pool, auditorium and shift change facilities.
Brookfield Multiplex Engineering and Infrastructure regional managing director Rainer Rasmussen said the company looked forward to working with the Roy Hill team.
“Leveraging our significant experience in construction, Brookfield Multiplex will collaborate with the client’s project team to construct high-quality facilities which are aesthetically pleasing but also promote an integrated community lifestyle,” Mr Rasmussen said.
“Roy Hill represents the new high-technology face of mining and we will work closely with them to design and create a landscaped mine village which reinforces the unique values and philosophies underpinning the project.”
