Scaffolding, supervision and access management on the Greenbushes plant project
SMS Group Services was awarded various contracts to provide scaffolding and access services for the construction phase of the Greenbushes lithium oxide-in-concentrate processing plant. Construction commenced in 2017 with SMS Group Services providing supervision, personnel and scaffolding management systems.
Our project management team has to-date supplied over 300 tonnes of scaffolding equipment, plus specialised equipment and vehicles. The site operations at Greenbushes also had to be accounted for, so SMS Group Services supplied a fully functioning office facility, crib facilities and a scaffold yard.
Our capability to supply labour meant we were also able to provide 20+ staff which included:
- Leading hands
- On-site administration support
- Site manager
- Health & safety officer
- Scaffold inspector
- Administrator/HR support officer.
We also formed a supply agreement with other site contractors in order to solve the problem of remote site excess logistics. To date, all equipment and labour supplied has met expectations and contributed to the overall success of the MSP Engineering project.
On completion of the construction phase at Greenbushes SMS Group Services anticipates further engagement to complete the scaffolding and access requirements for plant maintenance and breakdown services. The project at Greenbushes allows us to continue providing work and opportunities to the South West at our Bunbury operational branch – and it is extremely fulfilling to be able to support the local economy in the South-West.
