The Single Living Environment and Accommodation Precinct (Single LEAP) project is a $220 million PPP project to deliver 918 individual living quarters to Larrakeyah and Robertson Barracks in the Northern Territory. This project is part of an Australia wide commitment to increase on base living quarters by 3,500. Sitzler are partners in the consortium of 5 builders who, working with Plenary Living, have committed to deliver this project.

This project includes the detailed design and construction of the accommodation precincts on each base which in total consist of:

  • Construction of 45 Other Ranks (690 units)
  • Construction of 7 Senior Officer Buildings (18 units)
  • Construction of 14 Junior Officer Buildings (140 units)
  • Construction of 4 Recreational Buildings and ancillary facilities.
  • Refurbishment of 3 heritage buildings (70 units)
  • Demolition of identified buildings, car spaces and covered walkways
  • Infrastructure & engineering of services.
  • Car parks and crossovers

Through a coordinated approach and drawing together the considerable experiences of the Sitzler group, we have developed a cost effective solution to construction utilising precast concrete floors, tilt up walls, light weight but cyclonic rated unit walls, prefabricated bathroom modules (completed, tiled, all fixtures, joinery, power and lighting) as an innovative approach, and one that affords us protection against delays due to construction being undertaken over two Darwin wet seasons and the shortage of skilled labour required to undertake 918 traditional bathroom in a tight market place.
