The details


Melak, Indonesia


Full design, develop and deliver scope


Thiess’ work at Melak showcases excellence in progressive rehabilitation. On average, more than 100 hectares are completed each year. Progressive client inspections enable the team to identify potential issues early, minimising rework risk prior to handover. A positive client relationship and proactive engagement support high levels of satisfaction. The team has achieved this despite the challenges of long hauls for topsoil spreading and external impacts such as high rainfall. Their flexible approach to resourcing allows them to adjust to challenges to ultimately meet annual profiling and topsoiling targets. As a result, they regularly complete rehabilitation requirements ahead of budget and, when appropriate, with the space to fast-track works prior to the following year.
