Charles Darwin University (CDU) Education and Community Precinct

The Education and Community Precinct Project is a key part of the Darwin City Deal, bringing together the Australian and Northern Territory Governments, City of Darwin and Charles Darwin University to achieve a shared vision for Darwin’s Central Business District. The project will create 730 jobs in the Darwin economy (approximately 350 on-site jobs will be created during the construction phase with another approximately 380 jobs created off-site in the supply chain). The Precinct will accommodate NT and CDU library, extensive teaching and learning spaces, office space, recreational spaces for students, an art gallery, event spaces and underground car parking. The Precinct will also accommodate a café and pop-up food and beverage outlets in the external forecourt.

In January 2021 Halikos were awarded and commenced the Education and Community Precinct ECI Phase of the three-phase project. These are as follows:

  • Phase 1 – Early Contractor Involvement (ECI) Phase
  • Phase 2 – Design Finalisation and Construct (DF&C) Phase
  • Phase 3 – Facilities Management (FM) Phase

Construction will commence in the third quarter of 2021 and once complete in early 2024, the Precinct will house CDU’s Asia Pacific College of Business and Law, the College of Indigenous Futures, Arts and Society, IT teaching and the university’s International College. Up to 5,000 of the projected student population will be studying on-campus in these areas.

Halikos is committed to maximising local industry participation with ample opportunities for additional local engagement on the project being made available over the coming months. We will be continually updating our project information with available opportunities and awarded Subcontractor packages on the ICN landing page in due course.
