$42 million commitment to improving public housing
A huge $42 million contract for repairs and maintenance will mean more jobs for Territorian tradies and better public housing for tenants.
The 2-year contract will see works delivered in an efficient and reliable approach, helping to ensure public housing tenants have safe and secure housing.
Three contractors will deliver the works across four regions:
- Darwin - QP Building Contractors
- Casuarina - Precision Group NT
- Palmerston - Akron Group NT
- rural - Precision Group NT.
Akron Director, George Vordohilas, said this tender award means the business can offer training positions to local and Indigenous staff and provide job security for their workforce.
“We’re dedicated to creating opportunities for Indigenous people - through direct employment and by using Indigenous owned suppliers and subcontractors,” he said. “We’ve proudly exceeded our Indigenous employment commitment.”
The contract demonstrates our agency’s strong commitment to supporting all Territorians to access housing that is safe, secure and affordable.
