Design a Donga Initiative

The WA Mining Club Young Professionals subcommittee was created in 2018 to provide a space for young professionals to network, personally and professionally develop and encourage diversity and inclusion. Since our launch, we have welcomed hundreds of emerging and seasoned industry leaders to our events, with one key theme popping up in many discussions; how do we continually improve as an industry and create attractive opportunities for the next generation of workers.

The WA Mining Club Young Professionals, in conjunction with Grounded Construction Group, have created an initiative to continue optimising the ways in which we work and live. We have developed a confidential survey which allows you to share your thoughts regarding what the ultimate mine site accommodation looks like. We’d love to hear about aspects of the best dongas you have stayed in, and creative ideas on what would make them even more comfortable, sustainable and innovative.

This survey is designed to highlight positive aspects of our industry, while continuing to look for opportunities to improve our FIFO living conditions and commitments to sustainability. Following the collection of survey responses, Grounded Construction Group will bring this donga design to reality, an aspect that the WA Mining Club Young Professionals will showcase toward the end of 2019.

The ‘Design a Donga’ survey will be available until mid August 2019. We look forward to reviewing survey responses from individuals across the mining industry and showcasing your ideas in the coming months!
