Pemulwuy – first pieces into place

This article is sponsored by the Aboriginal Housing Company’s Pemulwuy Project. Authorised by Michael Mundine, CEO, Aboriginal Housing Company Limited

REDFERN: Construction commenced on the Aboriginal Housing Company’s (AHC) Pemulwuy Project in March. The AHC team was excited to see two large cranes erected on site in July. The workers put the cranes together like a giant meccano set, and carefully manoeuvred the pieces into place.

In recognition of NAIDOC, the Aboriginal and the Torres Strait Islander flags were raised high on the top of the crane structures. NAIDOC 2019’s theme was “Voice. Treaty. Truth”, which truly reflected the AHC’s long-term vision for the Pemulwuy Project.

Work on the site has progressed well. The first and second concrete slabs are down for the apartments, gym and gallery. The formwork for the gallery has commenced and excavation of the site is 95 per-cent complete.

The Pemulwuy Project consists of:

  • Precinct 1: Affordable housing for 62 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families, which is being built first, along with a gym and gallery.
  • Precinct 2: Commercial and retail space, and a childcare centre.
  • Precinct 3: Student accommodation, which will be known as the Col James Student Accommodation.
