SHAPE Darwin wins Master Builders NT 2023 Excellence in Building and Construction awards

SHAPE Darwin has taken out the top spot in the Commercial and Retail Fit Out or Alteration $500,000 – $1 Million, for the Headspace Palmerston fitout at the 2023 Master Builders NT Excellence in Building and Construction awards.

The 2023 EBC Awards is one of the most anticipated award nights in the Northern Territory’s building and construction industry. The prestigious awards ceremony is the largest event industry event held in Northern Australia, attracting more than 700 key players. This year’s event was held at Mindil Beach Casino, on Saturday, 26 August 2023.

Headspace Palmerston is a medical clinic aimed at providing specialised healthcare services to young people aged between 14 and 25 years. SHAPE Darwin delivered this fitout in collaboration with local architect Rossi Architect to transform the facility into a safe and welcoming space.

The project involved the installation of consultation clinics, a GP clinic, a youth space, a reception area, nooks, a study space and a waiting room.

The new space also included the implementation of mechanical, hydraulic, and electrical, including a new distribution board, lighting, and emergency lighting, as well as new flooring – carpet and vinyl, ceiling, doors, door hardware, and security systems.

Understanding Anglicare and Headspace requirements from completing the Headspace Casuarina in 2015, SHAPE worked very closely with the client and consultant groups to value engineer or seek alternatives to meet the project constraints – and as an extra value add, SHAPE installed a brand-new ceiling at no charge and even achieved practical completion one-week early.

“This recognition by Master Builders truly showcases the exceptional skills of our team, our valued suppliers and subcontractors…”

Overall, the project was executed seamlessly, and Anglicare is thrilled with its new space.

Nicholas Mills, General Manager – NT at SHAPE, said: “This recognition by Master Builders truly showcases the exceptional skills of our team, our valued suppliers and subcontractors, and their ongoing commitment to maintaining high standards in our work.

“Headspace Palmerston held special significance for the team due to the tireless efforts undertaken by the organisation to create safe environments catered to youth medical and counselling services. Undoubtedly, Headspace Palmerston is an exceptional fitout with many customised finishes. It was delivered to the client’s budget and ahead of programme, proving further success of this project.”
