Kumtor Gold Mine – Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan

Project: Establish a sheet metal shop on site and supply project management personnel to supervise the fabrication/installation of HVAC components in new gold mining facility
Owner: Cameco
Customer: Adam Clark/Aecon Mining

Description: This project was nestled in the Tien Shan Mountains, 14,500 feet above sea level. Skids of flat stock sheet metal were shipped from England to site where we had set up a basic fabrication shop. All duct layout and fabrication was then done by hand using manual tools. We supervised untrained local work crews that had never used modern tools. Instructions were conveyed to the crew through interpreters who had no understanding of HVAC systems.
