TEAM is an engineering contractor, specialising in project management for construction and maintenance projects.
TEAM Group completed the erection of two stackers and two reclaimers at Anglo American's new Grosvenor Mine near Moranbah. The works were completed between September 2014 and April 2016 with a total number of man hours in excess of 300,000 with no Loss Time Injuries for TEAM employees and subcontractors and over 670 critical lifts undertaken.
The four machines were manufactured in China and shipped to Mackay by sea. TEAM's scope of works began at the Port of Mackay with the receiving of the components off the ships, organising storage and transporting the components to site in the required sequence for construction.
Through strong project management, TEAM was able to plan and execute the transport of the RE041 Main Girder 1 from Mackay Harbour to Grosvenor Mine safely, with reduced costs and minimal disruptions.
Initially the project experienced some delays largely due to manufacturing and design issues which required rectification on site. TEAM was able to recover the schedule through effective project management which included creating an integrated delivery team consisting of Anglo, Hatch and TEAM conducting planning sessions together. Utilising Agile Project Management, Lean Construction principles and the use of pull planning methods supervisors, employees and sub-contractors were responsible for planning and were also accountable for outcomes.
This combination of processes and procedures produced an outstanding result able to be adapted to other projects regardless of size, scope or duration.
