Scope of Work & Disciplines

Pindari were engaged by BHP to complete substantial electrical, data and communications upgrades and an associated internal refurbishment, within the Admin Controls Room at Mining Area C (MAC). A detailed scope of works and cost estimate were prepared by Pindari in collaboration with BHP Representatives and stakeholders. Following our initial submission, efficiencies were identified to meet budget constraints.

  • Plasterboard Linings
  • Resilient Flooring (including hydrostatic moisture proof membrane)
