Non-Process Infrastructure and Utilities

Non-Process Infrastructure and Utilities

Major oil and gas, petrochemical and refinery projects can require facilities to service a project task-force of anywhere between 500 to 40,000 employees; which can usually only be met by the construction of dedicated turnkey greenfield camps, including utilities and temporary site facilities.

To allow for timely mobilisation of contractors and to ensure project success, early works often include the installation of a dedicated project construction village incorporating camp accommodation, utilities and infrastructure. Furthermore, the construction of temporary site facilities, including offices, warehousing, lay-down areas, fabrication shops and utilities, is frequently a necessity.

Non-process infrastructure projects, by nature, are logistic-driven with challenging schedules and intermediate requirements to meet early and phased occupancy. In many countries under local municipal authority guidelines and regulations, the presence of large volumes of foreign workers visiting the local towns or city public areas at weekends is actively discouraged. In these circumstances, the camp design needs to cater for full-time occupancy, combining additional enhanced indoor and outdoor recreational and sporting facilities.
