Second recent accolade for the Roy Hill team as it receives the PMI Project of The Year Award 2016

As the Project Management Contractor for the Roy Hill Project, WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff is proud to see the team receive the Project Management Institute (PMI) Project of The Year Award 2016.


WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff Managing Director Property, Environment & Resources Andrew Mather commented on the award-win:

‘This award recognises the global expertise of a highly-committed project management team.

‘Since 2013 we have shared our global project management skills and experience to support Hancock Prospecting and Roy Hill Holdings in the delivery of this complex, multidisciplinary project.

‘This project spans mining, rail, port, power, roads, buildings, water, telecommunications and other enabling infrastructure development – which requires a depth of global project management capabilities.

‘The Roy Hill team should be rightfully proud of this landmark project,’ concluded Mr Mather.

This is the second award this month for the Roy Hill team, which also won the 2016 Railway Technical Society of Australasia Railway Project Award.

About the project:

  • The project has been designed and constructed to ensure that production costs are in the lowest quartile of iron production worldwide
  • More than 25,000 direct construction workers were engaged and over 37.9 million hours were worked during the construction phase.
  • The total air miles travelled by the project’s charter plane between Perth and the mine site over a 30 month period is equivalent to three return flights between the earth and the moon
