Skilled Labour, Project Supervision and Engineered Access Solutions on the Tianqi Lithium Project.
In 2017, SMS Group Services was awarded a tier-one preferred provider contract by MSP Engineering at the $8 billion-dollar Tianqi Lithium Project in Kwinana.
The construction phase commenced in 2017 and saw SMS Group providing supervision personnel and scaffolding management systems. As of May 2019, there were 1700 tonnes of scaffolding equipment and 80 SMS Group Services personnel on site. The site operations included the supply of a fully functioning office facility, crib facilities and scaffold yard.
The current site team includes a site manager, health and safety lead, scaffold inspector, safety team, yard personnel, scaffolding supervision, scaffolders, leading hands, supervisors and on-site administrative support.
On completion of the construction phase of the project, SMS Group Services will be engaged to complete the scaffolding and access requirements for the plant commissioning to operations stage. SMS Group Services have also formed a supply agreement with other site contractors to mirror the MSP supply. This will provide cost savings to our primary client by allowing us to simultaneously service other key clients on site.
