Practical yet inviting living in an outback environment
Geolyse was commissioned by YTC Resources Ltd to be lead consultant for architecture, planning, environmental reporting, hydraulics and water management design for the construction of workers accommodation facilities for a new copper mine under construction at Nymagee.
Geolyse Architects provided camp layout of new accommodation buildings, administration, kitchen dining area, amenities, and communal spaces for 200 + workers to DA and CC stages. Geolyse Architects co-ordinated hydraulics and landscape design as a part of the client brief.
The project was to be a staged development with an initial development catering for deployment of 100 construction workers. All facilities were prefabricated units bought to the site by the client. They also included rec rooms, wash rooms, ablutions, library, disabled units, outdoor recreation and parking. The client requested particular attention be paid in the design, to practical, yet comfortable living in an outback environment.
