Providing the Complex Infrastructure Needed to Build Better Communities

Dendrobium Ventilation Shafts

In November 2005, Abergeldie was awarded the contract to construct two 270 metres deep ventilation shafts of 4m and 5m finished diameter. The shafts were blind bored from the surface and lined using remote methods. The shafts were completed prior to the underground tunnels reaching the location of the shaft bottom. Facilities were all purpose built as there was with no existing infrastructure.
