Jimblebar Roads and Ponds
Newman, Western Australia
As part of a design and construction project of the Industrial Facilities for BHP Billiton in Jimblebar, VALMEC constructed the roadways, parking area, oily water ponds and all HV/LV berms. Some 2 hectares of road construction and associated work were undertaken on the project.
Several challenges were encountered due to the D&C nature of the work. Several design changes took place during the works meaning the document control needed to be well managed and project management needed to consult with the client at every step throughout the construction. In addition, quality control and record keeping were required to be of an outstanding quality to monitor the high level of change that was ongoing on the project.
VALMEC worked closely with the client to get best value for money options throughout the design phase of the work. By doing this, significant costs were saved and the program of work maintained to an acceptable level. VALMEC maintained a flexible approach to the programming of the works so that areas of the car park could be utilised prior to the completion of the works.
