Construct

A project delivery team who pride themselves on self-performing works throughout all construction disciplines

Primero has safely delivered large scale construction projects across the resources, oil & gas and infrastructure sectors. Our ability to effectively deliver any type of project through a variety construction methodologies is underpinned by our core beliefs of working smarter, upholding promises and taking ownership. Our construction team have many years’ experience in all aspects of civil, structural, mechanical, piping, electrical and instrumentation construction activities.

We provide the necessary processes required from the earliest cost estimates, procurement, construction scheduling and planning, HSEQ planning and implementation, mobilisation management, induction and training as required and all aspects of the construction activity.

With full access to construction plant, tools and equipment, including cranes, excavators, bobcats, multi-purpose trucks and vehicles, containerized workshops, offices and small truck/utilities, Primero is able to provide a one stop construction service.

EPC

Primero is an EPC delivery leader with a long history of successfully delivering a diverse range of multi-disciplinary, turnkey design, construction and commissioning solutions in often remote and hazardous environments. Our commitment to diversified, in-house design and construction competency lends itself to providing optimal, turnkey EPC solutions.

 

Examples of EPC projects typically executed include:

  • Mineral processing facilities
  • Heavy equipment workshops
  • Hydrocarbon storage and distribution facilities
  • Gas metering facilities
  • HME and LV washdown facilities
  • Tails and dewatering solutions

Structural, Mechanical and Piping

Primero’s construction team have extensive experience in all aspects of structural, mechanical and piping fabrication, offsite assembly, equipment set out and installation. Our capability in the SMP domain spans from sustaining capital upgrades to existing process infrastructure, to providing multi-disciplinary, turnkey
EPC solutions for the construction of greenfields mineral processing facilities. Our experience in offshore fabrication and importation can offer a competitive advantage when sourcing large structural steel packages.

 

We offer:

  • Structural steel supply and erection
  • Installation of heavy mechanical equipment including crushers, screens, mills, stackers,
    reclaimers, pumps, compressors and equipment skids
  • Piping fabrication and installation to AS and ASME standards
  • Fabrication and offsite assembly of construction modules
  • HME and LV washdown facilities
  • Installation verifications

Electrical, Instrumentation and Controls

Primero have the people, plant and equipment to undertake large electrical, instrumentation and control system installations. Our team have a diversified skillset; demonstrating experience in the construction of mineral processing facilities and onshore gas processing facilities to installation and commissioning of
cutting edge waste heat recovery technology.

 

Areas of expertise include:

  • Electrical, instrumentation and control system installation
  • Supply and installation of switchrooms and switchgear
  • HV and LV reticulation
  • Hazardous area installation and testing
  • Power distribution
  • Industrial lighting installation
  • Process control system installation
  • Fuel management system installation

Civil and Concrete

Primero specialise in complex and high tolerance concrete structures. We have successfully delivered projects involving foundation and structural concrete for the likes of gas compressor stations and a wide range of process and non-process infrastructure packages.

Less sophisticated applications include skid and building foundations, ground slabs, suspended slabs and tilt up panel structures; often found within our scope.

 

We provide the following in house solutions:

  • Bulk earthworks and site drainage
  • Installation of below ground services
  • Detailed excavation
  • Formwork manufacture and installation
  • Manufacture of precast concrete structures
  • Installation of reinforcing steel
  • Concrete placement and finishing

Modularised Construction and Offsite Assembly

Primero undertakes heavy fabrication and the mechanical and electrical offsite assembly of construction modules from our facility in Bibra Lake. Works undertaken at the facility are governed by company standards and procedures to ensure component traceability and conformity to design specifications and relevant standards.

 

Projects commonly undertaken from the facility include:

  • Fabrication and assembly of gas metering skids
  • Fabrication and assembly of pump skids for fuel distribution and dewatering networks
  • Piping fabrication and assembly
  • Offsite commissioning

Construction Management and Project Controls

Primero’s integrated management framework ensures that project performance is repeatedly tracked, monitored and recorded effectively across all projects. Our construction expertise, underpinned by an ongoing commitment to the implementation of best practice project controls has helped secure our position as an EPC leader in chosen markets. Primero is an ISO9001 accredited organization.

 

Examples of standardised project control mechanisms include:

  • Earned Value Reporting
  • Live Efficiencies
  • EV Adjusted Forecasting
  • Capacity Planning by Task
  • Standard WBS Structures
  • Transparent Reporting

Commissioning

Primero prides itself on complete full ‘turn-key’ service delivery for our projects and we believe that the handover of the facility is the most important part of the process. The business has dedicated commissioning management engineers able to complete this process in-house.  This ensures that the verification and start-up process is safe, well managed and completed in an organised and timely manner under our control. Consequently, Primero Group has developed its own paperless ITR commissioning system, Checkmate, to ensure that all verification documentation is prepared, available and instantly ‘up loadable’ as completed in the field.

 

Key capabilities include:

  • Completions and commissioning strategy
  • Planning and implementation
  • Commissioning management and engineering support
  • Installation verification and compliance
  • Performance testing

Deconstruction and Relocation

Primero carries out the safe demolition and deconstruction of redundant facilities.  Capabilities include the ability to self-perform electrical, fluid and pneumatic service isolations.  Primero has often completed these works as part of site preparation for the construction of replacement infrastructure or at the end of a project when replacement infrastructure has been commissioned.
