AHAFO MILL EXPANSION PROJECT – GHANA Contract value $580,000,000.00 USD

Title: Newmont Construction Manager

My role as the Newmont Construction Manager was to organize and complete all of the early works including site establishment, tie ins to existing services, preliminary earthworks, construction of laydowns, 1st stage fencing etc. Then the intention was to integrate me into the EPCM construction team to work alongside the EPCM Construction Manager once they established on site to help generate a true “salt & pepper” organization that has the best interests of the project and the client at heart ensuring that program and budget are met without jeopardizing safety or quality.

The project has a 3 – 4 year build period dependent upon which option the board decide to run with, line2 only or line 2 plus 2X+ but unfortunately due to economic reasons Newmont has put the project on hold for a minimum of 12 months starting 31 December 2013 which has resulted in my redundancy.
