AHC awarded for excellence in urban development

On August 12, the Aboriginal Housing Company Limited (AHC) attended the UDIA Crown Group Awards for Excellence. The awards highlight innovation, sustainability, industry leadership and excellence in urban development across NSW and the ACT.

The AHC was a finalist in three categories and won two – these being excellence in Social and Community Infrastructure, and Urban Renewal.

Chairperson of the AHC, Alisi Tutuila, said, “The Pemulwuy vision has been a 40-year vision being led by Uncle Mick Mundine, Lani Tuitavake and the whole team at AHC with Deicorp, who have tirelessly worked for the last 12 years to deliver what we see today on the Block.”

Ms Tutuila said the Pemulwuy project incorporates social and affordable housing dwellings for the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community, student accommodation and other facilities, including a commercial precinct to be completed by the end of this year.

July 2023 would also mark 50 years for the Aboriginal Housing Company.

“Today the AHC is being recognised as an industry leader in urban design and development as an independent Aboriginal developer and affordable housing provider,” Ms Tutuila said, “and I am so excited to see what God has next for this new season.”
