Mining

Force 10 is ideally suited for quickly building fit for purpose, high quality, extremely durable Mining and Construction Camps in remote regions.

In 2012, Force 10 has won major contracts in Phosphate Hill, Queensland and Papua New Guinea to supply mining accommodation. We supplied a major new Housing and Accommodation Development for HBS Machinery in Lae.  The Housing Resort included nine different buildings – motel accommodation of 30 rooms; 4 x two bedroom duplexes; a restaurant/recreation club; a retail outlet and residence and a commercial laundry. The job commenced work on site in April 2012 and all the buildings were completed by October of that year.  The Development was constructed by National workers.

Ok Tedi MiningIn 2013 Ok Tedi Mining are building five new 109 room, three storey accommodation buildings in Tabubil, PNG with Force 10 materials. The major logistical challenges have been met by Force 10.  334 containers had to be delivered first to PNG and then up the Fly River and then from Kiunga by dirt road for 130 km. OK Tedi management have been really happy with the result.

The Australia resource sector has seen a great resurgence in recent years and increased competition for competent workers has driven higher levels of comfort and space, particularly for living quarters. Our system meets and exceeds all of these requirements and its versatility makes it the ideal solution for large or small camps as we can quickly expand or contract from a 150 to 1,500 man camp and back again to 150 (most of our structures are relocatable) when the work is done.

Key product attributes are:

  • Very fast build to “lock up”
  • Ideal for remote and difficult locations
  • Ease of construction with a minimum of skilled labour
