Halcrow is involved in the early works design and engineering phase of the $1 billion Roy Hill Iron Ore portside facilities project.
Working for contractor client Clough Forge Joint Venture, this represents Halcrow’s largest single mining project in Australia to date.
Halcrow’s scope as designer will include geotechnical and earthworks, coastal and drainage, structural, road/bridge and substantial rail track and a rail infrastructure yard design.
Construction is set to commence in November 2012, with Halcrow providing some construction supervision. This phase will involve shifting 8 million cubic metres of earthworks, 23,000 cubic metres of concrete, 6,000 piles, 26,000 tonnes of structural steel, 800km of electrical cables, 750,000 tonnes of ballast and road base and approximately 50,000 metres of new rail.
