The Ali Curung and Tara Hous­ing Upgrades project is part of the Room To Breathe ini­tia­tive by the North­ern Ter­ri­to­ry Gov­ern­ment to improve the liv­ing spaces in exist­ing pub­lic hous­ing build­ings. Har­vey Devel­op­ments worked with the Hous­ing Depart­ment to upgrade a num­ber of hous­es around the com­mu­ni­ties of Ali Curung and Tara, fresh­en­ing up the inte­ri­or and exte­ri­or paint, ren­o­vat­ing bath­rooms and kitchens, adding new com­mu­nal spaces for fam­i­lies to enjoy.

The site of the Works are Lots 76, 88, 112, 127, 133, 151, 216, 218, 220, 224, 236, 241 and 245 in the com­mu­ni­ty of Ali Curung and Lots 15, 23, 26 and 45 in Tara Com­mu­ni­ty, North­ern Territory. 

We car­ried out these works in accor­dance with the nom­i­nat­ed design draw­ings, addi­tion­al scope of works, sched­ules and spec­i­fi­ca­tions pro­vid­ed with the contract. 

The works includ­ed the cer­ti­fi­ca­tion of struc­tures built as described in the con­tract, inclu­sive of As Con­struct­ed” draw­ings, and final cer­tifi­cates as described.
