2012 - 2014
Full project details
The scope of works included providing track work for the conveyor system, three conveyors, a crushing station, a skyline tripper, a stockpile pad, a reclaim tunnel and a rail load-out bin.
Laing O’Rourke self-performed the design and construction of all components, which involved bulk earthworks, rail system construction and integration, signalling and communication, culverts and drainage, remediation works and the installation of coal-handling plant.
An iconic building
The project drew on multidisciplinary strengths across Laing O’Rourke’s rail and infrastructure business units.
At its peak, the project employed more than 300 people from Laing O’Rourke, Centennial Coal and partner companies across the design, construction, operations and maintenance phases.
Logistics and DfMA
Through close liaison with the Australian Rail Track Corporation (ARTC), Laing O’Rourke negotiated a target incentive mechanism, mitigated interface risks and reduced program inefficiencies.
By providing integrated design and construction services, and preparing concept and preliminary designs and budgets as early as possible, Laing O’Rourke completed the project four months ahead of schedule.
