At the end of October 2015 Kerman Contracting Pty Ltd (Kerman) successfully completed its first major civil and concrete project for CITIC Pacific Mining.
The scope of works included the supply and construction of civil and concrete works associated with processing lines 3 to 6 on the Sino Iron project at Cape Preston, WA. In more detail the works comprised complex concrete works for main structures, such as 24 large pedestals, four E-house buildings (600m3 each), numerous ground slabs, eight suspended floors (400m3 each), concrete infill for steel columns and micropiles.
Since commencement of the site works in October 2013, Kerman poured approx. 22,000m3 of concrete and installed a total of 2,000 tonnes of reinforcement. These final quantities represent a 35 per cent increase in scope which was added to the original contract during the project duration. “We can proudly say that the civil and concrete works project has been LTI free for the whole project duration of 25 months and a total of 132,000 man hours,” stated Chris Kerman, Managing Director from Kerman Contracting.
All works were completed safely, one month ahead of schedule, within budget and to the full satisfaction of Kerman’s client Sino Iron Pty Ltd.
