The FKG Group’s extensive track record of projects completed with BP Australia has extended to the design and construct of the BP Paget Travel Centre.  The Centre includes truck and car canopies, a truckers’ lounge and amenities, commercial kitchen, and fast food tenancies.  As with several of our previous projects with BP, the FKG Group obtained the Building Approval for the project.

With works being completed in a regional location, the team ensured any long lead time items and long travel times for certain items were programmed accordingly to ensure no delays to the program.  A strong safety focus was placed on heat-related illnesses and injuries, given the project works were undertaken throughout summer in the Mackay region.

Works and productivity were impacted by COVID-19, through the need to allow more space than usual for site facilities, numbers on shared work areas had to be limited, and as well with travel restrictions.  The FKG Group worked with subcontractors to get additional resources to ensure no delay to program, resulting in the delivery of the project to a high standard and on time.
