Newcrest Mining (LGL)- 800 Man Camp

Location: Lihir Island - PNG

Period: Jan. 2017 - Ongoing

Project Name: LGL Camp1

Client: Lihir Gold Limited

Project Description

Camp upgrade. The original 25-year-old ‘Camp 1’ is being demolished and completely replaced with Ark’s 54-Man accommodation blocks.

Ark’s two storey design allows for more rooms per square metre without increasing the footprint of the original camp.

The buildings, along with all supplied funishings and fixtures meet PNG and Australian standards. A BCA report and structurally certified drawings provided LGL with a turnkey solutions.

Given the project’s proximity to the ocean and the high volume of sulphur in the air, all structural components have been hot-dip galvanised to provide a 25-year warranty on the buildings.

This project is being undertaken in partnership with local landowner company, Anitua Constructions. Together, Ark Pacific and Anitua Constructions have delivered numerous other modular building solutions on Lihir Island including large office blocks, workshops, ablution blocks, security huts and site offices.
