1000 person permanent village




Fortescue Metals Group

Having successfully completed a 200 person construction camp for Eliwana, Grounded was appointed to build the much larger 1000 personal main village.

Key objectives were to provide an environment that acts as a "home away from home" and that clearly differentiated itself from that of a typical camp. Considerable emphasis was placed upon providing an aesthetically appealing style that promotes a community feel whilst maintaining levels of privacy.

Specifics included:

  • Unique innovative recreational and communal facilities
  • Design that strongly complements and recognises the traditional landowners of the region
  • Earthworks, concreting
  • Civil/structural works
  • Plumbing, communications
  • Chemical storage facility
  • Transportation infrastructure
  • Installation of relocated kitchen, dryness accommodation buildings, laundry, maintenance shed, in situ gym, sports courts
