Contracting and employment opportunities
Frontier Kemper Aecon (FKA) has been selected to deliver the majority of the construction scope. As main contractor, FKA is responsible for hiring and managing the various subcontractors and employees who will be required to construct the project. Rio Tinto is working with FKA to ensure the maximum involvement of First Nations, and local and regional businesses and workforce in the project, subject to qualifications and availability.
At peak construction, the total construction workforce could be in the range of 300, however this number will vary and will depend on the final workforce plan. All workforce requirements will be arranged through the main contractor and through the Project Labour Agreement with the unions working on the project.
