Indigenous commercial building partnership NACP Projects has secured a Defence contract to build infrastructure on the Woomera military range in the far north of South Australia.

As part of the Woomera Range Remediation Project, NACP Projects has been engaged to deliver new and upgraded infrastructure and facilities to support the range safety and control systems selected as part of Project AIR 3024 Phase 1.

NACP Projects operations manager Marcus Benny said winning this contract was testament to the group’s growing reputation within the Defence industry.

“NACP Projects is building a strong track record with Defence. We have successfully undertaken a range of projects for Defence to date,” he said.

“These have included the design and construction of new facilities at seven sites across Queensland, NSW and the Northern Territory to support a new fleet of fire fighting vehicles, and more recently we completed a new battlespace testing facility in Victoria.”

NACP Projects is a joint venture between privately owned construction company BADGE and National Aboriginal Construction Partners, comprised of

indigenous entities Marra Worra Worra, Waanyi Aboriginal Corporation and Nirrumbuk Aboriginal Corporation.

Benny said the Woomera Range Remediation contract was strategically important for NACP Projects as it expanded its involvement in the delivery of national Defence infrastructure.

As NACP Projects continues to expand, so too do the employment opportunities for Indigenous Australians.

One of the corporate social objectives of NACP Projects is to support and develop Indigenous communities by providing opportunities to upskill and develop the local workforce.

NACP is currently seeking Indigenous Australians interested in joining its apprenticeship program and building a career in the construction industry.

“This is an exciting opportunity for Indigenous workers to be involved in key infrastructure projects across Australia,” Benny said.
