What a $200m mine camp looks like
Brookfield Multiplex this week completed a $200 million accommodation village in Western Australia's Pilbara for Gina Rinehart's new iron ore mine.
Brookfield Engineering and Infrastructure, part of the $175 billion Brookfield's alternative asset management company, started work at the $10 billion Roy Hill project in August last year which comprises almost 2,000 permanent rooms, an auditorium, mess halls and a state-of-the-art recreation centre featuring a gym, sports facilities, a swimming pool and, being located in Oz, several BBQ areas.
Roy Hill, owned by Rinehart and a Japanese and Korean syndicate, could start producing 55 million tonnes a year from as early as September 2015 and slot in behind Fortescue Metals Group as Australia fourth largest producer.
Brookfield has also been awarded a $70 million contract to complete non-processing infrastructure facilities starting early next year at Roy Hill, which is 100km from the nearest town.
