Ausco Mobile builds accommodation for 300 staff, for 3 months.

The Duck Creek Case Study, as told by client, Murphy Pipe & Civil.

‘Murphy Pipe and Civil (MPC) awarded Ausco Modular the contract to supply, install and manage a temporary camp in Duck Creek (north of Roma) as part of our works on the Santos GLNG Project. The camp had to accommodate 300 staff, but only for a couple of months during the peak construction phase of the Comet Ridge to Wallumbilla Pipeline Loop Project.

We needed the camp up and running quickly, so Ausco proposed one of their new plug’n’play camps. Because all the services were on skids and above ground, the camp was established quickly with minimal fuss. Better yet, efficient demobilisation of the camp means the land can be returned to its original state when the Project is finished.

Once the contract was awarded, the Ausco Mobile team simply got in there and got it done. The install programme was audacious, but milestones were met and we were kept advised of Ausco’s progress throughout the process. What impressed me was how easily Ausco adapted to unforeseen changes in the schedule and their ability to offer alternative solutions quickly and efficiently. This made my job easier, that’s for sure.

Operationally, Ausco has responded quickly and calmly to any occasional issue – no matter the size – and this confirmed my confidence in the Ausco Mobile team. Nothing seems to be too much for them.

In particular, I would like to acknowledge and thank Jeremy Kenny, Ausco’s Mobile Camp Logistics Coordinator, for his tireless efforts. He and the install team worked hard in tough conditions to build the camp and deal with some pretty big challenges along the way.’
