Site Services

With all the on-going discoveries of natural resources in Africa, the growing populations, the related infrastructural demands and the growing Global Market demand for the mineral resources and wealth that lies beneath the African soil, significant numbers of staff are generally required for each and every project, and each and every project needs ‘site services’.

`Without beds there are no projects. Without projects, there are no beds’. This is where we come in.

What are Site Services?

These are all the services and administration that support the clients critical path in order to execute their core business. It includes the integration of various services to accommodate the employee in a cost effective way, so that the employer achieves their overall goals for the project. 

Typically, remote mining and construction sites start off with a pilot camp usually consisting of tents or ‘flat-packs’ to start the early works. This will then progress to a full Construction Camp which is semi permanent in nature (usually consisting of reconfigured containers) and ending with an Operations Camp, which is a permanent construction.

Project Risk due to Poor Site Services

If the employee lacks good accommodation, a poor base camp has an issue with food due to cultural, quality or religious reasons and little or no recreation, the result is a loss of productivity in the construction and project disciplines, often resulting in severely negative impacts on the critical path for the project. 

To cut to the chase, a bad camp affects all performance figures, hitting the project financially and severely impacting productivity. No company can afford to take a chance with poor Site Services, especially in addition to all the other challenges in Africa.
