A mining services company will treat remote employees to a classy lifestyle.
Fly-in fly-out (FIFO) workers will enjoy three times more living space, self-contained amenities and many other perks at two new Onslow Accommodation Villages.
The projects involve constructing 750 “apartment-like” rooms, each of which boast a total area of 45 sqm. They come with a queen size bed, separate ensuite, kitchenette, lounge, balcony, laundry with washer and dryer, and large television with video call capabilities.
An al-a-carte menu will be available at the onsite restaurant with alfresco dining options. There will be an Olympic-size swimming pool, indoor fitness centre and gym, café serving barista-made coffee, cinema, golf simulators and pool tables.
There will also be a running track, mini golf course, football oval with goal posts, cricket nets and multi-purpose basketball, tennis and volleyball courts.
The entire facility is promised to be female- and couples- friendly with enhanced CCTV security systems fitted throughout.
Employer Mineral Resources (MinRes) hopes the developments will improve workplace health and wellbeing.
“Our people are the foundation of MinRes’ success and that is why we will give them the best FIFO village experience in the sector,” MinRes chief people and shared services officer Bronwyn Grieve said in a public statement.
“The accommodation and amenities at Onslow Iron will set a new standard, helping to change the FIFO culture and contribute to the project’s success.”
Construction at the 500-room Ken’s Bore Resort is expected to start before June 2023. The the second 250-room Onslow Resort is likely to begin during the second half of the year.
