GLADSTONE, Australia – ATCO Structures & Logistics (ATCO) has begun construction of a second 1,700-person construction camp, along with temporary site offices, on Curtis Island, Queensland, for the Gladstone Liquefied Natural Gas (GLNG) project. This win follows the announcement earlier this month that ATCO had begun building a construction village for the Queensland Curtis LNG Project.
The GLNG Project is a joint venture of Santos, PETRONAS, Total and Kogas. The construction village for the GLNG project will provide workforce housing and recreational amenities for the workers constructing the GLNG processing plant on Curtis Island. The contract for the construction village was awarded to ATCO by Bechtel, the prime EPC contractor working for GLNG joint venture to design and build the project.
“We have a long history of providing quality modular solutions to the resource industry in Australia,” said Harry Wilmot, President & Chief Operating Officer, ATCO Structures & Logistics. “We’re appreciative that Bechtel has chosen ATCO to accommodate its workforce with our safe, cost-effective housing.”
The two-storey construction village will be in place for approximately 44 months and will comprise 336 modular units for the housing facility and 400 modular units for the office complex. They will be built at ATCO’s manufacturing plants in Brisbane and Townsville, transported to Curtis Island, and installed by ATCO. The construction village will include sleeping quarters with flat screen TVs and internet connectivity, a dining facility and laundry area. Recreational amenities will include a swimming pool, BBQ facilities and golf and cricket nets.
