Piacentini & Son approached AUSPAN for their HV Workshop needs at 2 mine sites where they needed a Design & Construct Solution that would deliver a cost effective solution as quickly as possible to support their soon to commence mining operations at the Cataby & Boonanarring Mineral Sands Mines.


Auspan applied the "Can Do" attitude we are known for, to delivering a custom D&C solution that included door openings and crane hook heights to Piacentini's largest and latest model mining equipment.

Auspan completed the full Design & Construct solution for the structural steel and cladding packages.
