Indigenous Essential Services team a winner
Territory Families, Housing and Communities’ Indigenous Essential Services team recently won two awards for a program that is providing power reliability, water and sewerage services, and is critical to the Remote Housing Investment Package.
The Headworks Program is a joint program with other agencies that is driven by TFHC’s Indigenous Essential Services team and is vital in supporting remote community development. The program is run in collaboration with Power and Water Corporation and the Department of Infrastructure, Planning and Logistics.
Senior Director Infrastructure, Indigenous Essential Services, Lindsay Smith, said TFHC was committed to providing safe and secure housing for Territorians living in some of the most remote places in Australia.
“Working together means that these projects, which are essential for housing and remote community development, can succeed,” Mr Lindsay said.
The awards, the NT Water Awards’ Infrastructure Project Innovation Award (Regional) and the Australian Institute of Project Management Achievement Award (Regional), were presented at two separate ceremonies in October.
This $130 million program includes building and commissioning water storage tanks, pump stations, treatment ponds, smart water meters, water transmission pipes, water supply networks and bore drilling.
