Macroplan was commissioned to assess the supply and demand for worker accommodation catering to fly-in-fly-out (FIFO) workers in Port Hedland, as part of an investment case for a major new worker accommodation facility.

Port Hedland is one of the largest ports in Australia and the main port for iron ore exports from the Pilbara. Significant investment is underway in large-scale renewable energy and related activities which is requiring an expanded workforce. Due to its remoteness, FIFO workers are a major source of the current and future workforce.

Our team analysed and current FIFO/worker accommodation market, including market competitors and trends to inform potential room rates. This included an in-depth analysis of the investment intentions of major firms operating in or considering operating in Port Hedland. Our team also modelled a range of scenarios for demand and supply, with risk probabilities assigned to each of the scenarios.
