Nantawarrina Ranger Accommodation

The Design Construct Program is currently designing accommodation for Aboriginal Rangers in the Nantawarrina Indigenous Protected Area (IPA). The accommodation will support the conservation efforts of rangers who are living on their land as part of the Australian Government’s Working on Country Program.

We are in the final design stages and will begin prefabrication of the building in mid 2018.

Current Project

Design And Construct

In early 2012, on the basis of evolving experience with remote Indigenous projects, the Design Construct Program was invited to assist a community at Port Resolution, Tanna Island, Vanuatu, to design and construct visitor accommodation as a means of generating income for children’s education.

Get Involved

As a participant in Design Construct you will be involved in all stages of the building process, including developing design proposals, dealing with clients, building and documentation. This valuable process is one of the best possible preparations for your professional life.

Projects pass through several phases:

  • Design: students are briefed, survey sites and produce proposals
  • Design development: students undertake intensive courses, developing their designs in small groups
  • Planning and certification
  • Building: two-week prefabrication sessions are run during student holidays. Students are also involved in on-site building

Projects are generally long-term and pass from one group of students to another.
