PTM Group was commissioned by the Northern Territory Government to build new facilities at Nemarluk School, a school for children who require specialised and individualised educational programs.

This was a complex project, one that required us to incorporate additional features and functions in classrooms and outdoor areas to ensure the premises were pleasant, convenient and accessible for all. We worked in partnership with the local community to fully understand the current and likely future needs of the school.

This was a challenging project. Our mission was to create an attractive, accessible, inclusive school and to do this we needed to provide facilities and spaces of a very high standard. Working through wet weather conditions meant we needed to be meticulous with our project and time management. Keeping disruption to a minimum was front of mind, and we communicated regularly with residents to keep them up to date with developments.

The new building features 14 purpose-built classrooms, a hydrotherapy pool, a multipurpose assembly hall, a gymnasium, an after-school care building and colour-coding used to help students navigate the campus.

The project was completed to time and budget, and was recognised at the Master Builders Awards for its workmanship, innovation and budget control.
