DBCT Management Pty Ltd


December 2005 - October 2009


$102 million




The scope of works included:

As part of the expansion of the existing stockyard, BMD Constructions was engaged to construct three machinery bunds, each 1.3 kilometres in length with associated earthworks and services. After achieving exceptional results, BMD was invited to tender on a sole source basis for many additional contracts. The final works included: bund 4A and 5A, bund 6, access road and Hay Point Rod conveyor underpass, surge bin SB3 reclamation works, and final site wide civil works – stage 2.


The DBCT Expansion was undertaken during a period of unprecedented construction activity. In order to manage and mitigate the risks associated with carrying out a major project in this environment, the project team implemented initiatives including the mobilisation of the pug-mill silo to site and increased production of Bund 4A panels.

BMD Constructions structured the program of works to minimise down time for the operating equipment, as well as ensure that equipment shutdowns were appropriately sequenced to keep operational disruption to a minimum. Construction works were undertaken across a number of accelerated work fronts, ensuring critical milestones were achieved to permit the progressive handover of each section.
