BMD Constructions deliver resources industry project in Western Australia

BMD Constructions in Western Australia has recently completed our first resources industry project in the region, the stacker SK702 rail and embankment remediation project for Fortescue Metals Group (FMG), located in Anderson Point, Port Hedland. The project involved the replacement of rail, sleepers and ballast, and remediation of the sub ballast capping which supports the stacker reclaimer SK702 at FMG’s port facility. In the early stages, BMD Constructions worked quickly and efficiently to establish the site, incorporating detailed planning to ensure the project commenced on time. This included careful logistics and transport for the required resources on the project with the team working proactively with the client to manage the program of works and ensure adequate scheduling of resources within the roster. The result was a flexible system which enabled all or some staff to be deployed as required to allow for changes in the works and critical path activities to continue. To ensure the safety of all stakeholders, the project was backed by a range of exceptional management systems, covering key issues including fitness for work and fatigue management – vital in the safe delivery of all regional and remote projects. These plans were carefully tailored to the requirements of travelling to and from the Port Headland site and specific journey management plans were developed to ensure the travel times and rostered working times were accommodated for. BMD Constructions regularly monitored the fitness of our employees and site staff and coupled with our Zero Harm policy, ensured the safe working operations of the project. BMD Constructions are proud to have delivered a successful project, meeting client expectations while ensuring safety of stakeholders remained a priority throughout the life of the project.
