The regeneration of the Greek Orthodox Community Hall was part of the Territory Government’s stimulus grant initiative aimed at revitalising infrastructure to create jobs.
PTM Group embraced this project with a benevolent mindset, as they felt strongly about giving back to the Territory by supporting the Greek Community in and around Darwin.
The initial scope for the upgrade was to ‘freshen up’ the Hall and paint it, as well as add new disabled toilets and upgrade the existing toilets.
PTM Group went beyond the scope of works by providing some added enhancements. The Hall was re-tiled internally, the stage was extended and repaired, cladding treatments were added externally and the kitchen was upgraded with new ovens and freezers.
Power and Water increased the power load to the Hall by extending the power to the nearby sub-station. PTM Group were integral to this improvement by liaising and coordinating with Power and Water.
Over the course of the Hall upgrade 120 people were employed including PTM Group’s subcontractors. The time-frame for completion of the upgrade was approximately 3 months.
The Hall was officially re-opened by the Treasurer Nicole Manison on 15 November 2017, 48 years to the day from when the Hall was first opened in 1969.
