Drillmech was contracted by Austral Construction to assist in the stacker replacement project at East Intercourse Island. Austral was working on this project with a big-name mining client that was experiencing schedule volatility due to their own shut down requirements and contractor delays. As such, they were forced to request extremely tight deadlines, schedule changes and even unscoped work at the last minute! Luckily, that was no problem for Drillmech.
Our solution was to reprogram the fabrication schedule and increase resource availability to meet their onsite requirements. After the work was finished, an Austral engineer noted that the quality of the fabrication and accuracy to design was perfect, with no non-compliances recorded and no adjustments required. Additionally, the team at Austral were thankful that Drillmech picked up on design issues early in the engagement – which meant significant lost time and remediation cost savings for their client!
