Galiwin’ku Land Division

Galiwin'ku, a large community on Elcho Island, Northern Territory has recently seen an increased demand for housing which has led to the development of further housing including a new 100 lot subdivision.

Tonkin Consulting was engaged to provide concepts, detailed design and documentation for civil services, various upgrades to existing sewerage, water supply and wastewater disposal infrastructure. The hydraulic and electrical reticulation systems were designed consultatively with Northern Territory’s water and power authority, Power Water Corporation.

Close consultation with the client ensured infrastructure components of the project fit with the expectations of the community. As a result of Tonkin Consulting’s consultative approach and open communication with stakeholders, the project was delivered successfully and to a high standard.
