Our teams are experienced in executing jobs on greenfield sites and operating plants.

Our customers have the confidence that we understand the different challenges that arise during job execution.


We understand the importance of completing maintenance works to the highest level so as to ensure plant availability is maximised between planned outages. Our teams can provide labour as directed by our clients supervisory and shutdown planning teams. We also provide shutdown specialists services, where our team will work with site planning and maintenance teams to review the scope of works and challenging the scope for allocated hours and personnel requirements. Once manning levels, required trades and work order hours have been levelled and are approved by the client, Gantt charts are updated to reflect changes. Our off-site team then resource the personnel required for the shutdown duration.

…Our experienced execution team specialises in maintaining crushing, screening, grinding and flotation systems across many mine sites. There is no job too large or too small.

Our shutdown specialists will bring in their supervisory team to familiarise themselves in their areas of responsibility. The timing of this depends on the workload and duration time of the outage. Shutdown personnel are then allocated to the best fit across the scheduled job tasks. Our team will report back to the planners at nominated times to give progress updates to allow for the planners to monitor actual and emergent works to the schedule. Once the outage is completed the plant is handed back with a smaller commissioning team to assist with the start-up.

Our highly skilled shutdown planning & execution teams specialise in all facets of project management specifically in planning, scheduling, execution, cost control reporting, WHS&E & commissioning…
