West Perth-based Grounded Construction Group is nearing completion of a $15 million project to install two mining villages for Iluka Resources’ Cataby mineral sands project north of Perth.
Under the contract, Grounded built a 260-person facility as part of a first stage, followed by a 180-person campsite.
Stage three of the project is currently in the construction phase and encompasses the administration, storage and medical necessities for the mine, with completion expected in November.
The villages include a swimming pool, tennis court, gymnasium and barbeque area.
The project comprised the installation of waste and water treatment plants, electrical, plumbing, communications, bitumen roads and car parks.
The greenfield site also required bulk earthworks, concreting, sealed roads and the transport of buildings.
Managing director Paul Natoli said the company was pleased to be a part of the Cataby project.
“Our team of project managers and contractors has all worked cohesively and cooperatively to complete these two major stages ahead of schedule and on budget,” he said.
Grounded specialises in the installation and refurbishment of permanent and temporary modular portable buildings, mining camps, non-process infrastructure, operational facilities and the development of long-term housing.
The company has previously completed work for BHP Billiton, Rio Tinto and Fortescue Metals Group and built a 400-person mining village for Dacian Gold's new Mt Morgan mine.
The company was founded by Mr Natoli and has been operating since 2013.
