project details
Darwin, Northern Territory

Contract Value:
Completion Date:
December 1999
Peter McMillan, Darwin Property Management

This Design & Construct contract consisted of 14 two-bedroom and 14 three-bedroom units in a seven-storey building and included the supply and installation of high quality fixtures and fittings throughout and included a 20 metre by 4 metre external lap pool.

Construction commenced in what was one of Darwins biggest wet seasons. Detailed critical path network programming was carried out in conjunction with the detailed structural design which enabled the structure of the building to be completed nine weeks ahead of program. Nine-day floor cycle times were routinely achieved.

Sitzler undertook this project in a consultative manner with the developers which resulted in all design issues being resolved at the commencement of the project. This allowed all trade contracts to be let at the start of the project ensuring that the program could be improved.

The project management was well controlled, as evidenced by the on time completion. The outstanding building quality has been recognised by several groups. The buyers, real estate agents, property managers and tenants have all remarked on the attention to detail in the finishes.

Having developed property in Sydney, Canberra, Singapore, Vietnam, Cambolia, Laos, Indonesia, Myanmar and more recently Darwin, most of the development challenges have been experienced first hand. This project has been the most trouble free encountered to date. You and your organisation are true professionals and have in this case exceeded the developer's expectations.
