Gateway Village


Location: South Hedland, Western Australia

Client: Bloomer Constructions

Project Background:
Bloomer Constructions has been working with the Moddex range of balustrades, handrails and guardrails for over 12 months. Bloomer was awarded the contract to construct the Hatch designed Gateway Village, a new mining accommodation camp in South Hedland, 1,600 kilometres north of Perth.

The workforce accommodation facility houses over 1,200 workers. Gateway Village is underpinned by a major resource company operating in the Pilbara and includes a mix of two-storey construction accommodation and high-standard one and two storey lodgings for operations personnel.

Products/configurations used on project:
Conectabal balustrades and Assistrail handrails were used for fifty stairways and thirty ramps within the Village.

Our design team worked closely with the engineers to ensure we were meeting relevant standards and exceeding expectations.

Why was Moddex product selected?
Moddex handrails were selected due to the robustness, quality, appearance and ease of installation whilst being price competitive.

"Moddex approaches handrailing differently to others due to its modular design and manufacture while meeting all the required standards. This means that we have avoided any welding whilst erecting the handrails. This ensures a simplified and more rapid installation for us without compromising rigidity and safety."

Client comment/feedback:
"We have been impressed with the quality, the service and the end result. Working with Moddex handrails, and the company’s representatives, has made our job here in this heat much easier. I hope to install Moddex handrails in upcoming projects."
