As the financial year draws to a close, we thought we would take the time to reflect on Probuild NT’s key achievements.
Northern Territory Open Education Centre
A success in so many ways; this project is best known for Probuild NT’s achievements in training outcomes during construction!
Probuild NT worked with IE Projects and Batchelor Institute to deliver two, 12 week onsite training programs. They installed a dedicated demountable classroom. This made it easier to give classroom based training to over 25 trainees onsite. The trainees were able to work onsite for half the day, and spend the other half in the classroom, learning.
Finished in July 2016, the NT Open Education Centre is located on the grounds of Darwin High School at Bullocky Point, Darwin. The $13,000,000 NT Open Education Centre building is over 2100m2 of innovative educational facility constructed over three levels.
Royal Flying Doctors Service – Bombing of Darwin Tourist Facility
Remember that decommissioned Royal Flying Doctors Service PC12 Aircraft that Probuild NT placed into the new tourist facility on Stokes Hill Wharf? That was surely not something you saw every day! If you missed it you can see the video below.
The RFDS Pilatus PC-12 was not the only aircraft to be positioned in the building. Probuild NT also placed full-scale replica of a Japanese Zero. The model is suspended from one of the existing portal frames. This world class facility features cutting-edge holographic and virtual reality technology. Visitors can experience the February 19, 1942 Bombing of Darwin and learn more about the activities of the Royal Flying Doctors Service.
Probuild NT were delighted to win three awards over the course of the year:
- NT Training Award for Medium Employer of the Year (2016)
- Australian Training Award for Medium Employer of the Year (2016)
- Master Builders Excellence in Building and Construction 2016 – Remote Project Award.
2017 Northern Territory Architecture Awards winners announced!
Probuild NT would like to congratulate MODE for receiving the most prestigious honour awarded by the Australian Institute of Architects’ (AIA) NT chapter, the Tracy Memorial Award for this project. The Bullocky Point Education Precinct also received the Northern Territory Chapter Award for Educational Architecture and an award for Interior Architecture.
Well Done MODE Team!

This year, Probuild NT has cemented their presence in the Top End. The majority of their business functions now operate permanently out of their Darwin office.
At the start of the financial year, the team got together for strategy planning event, where they hashed out their core purpose; to develop the community with trust in partnerships. They also collectively agreed on their core values of determination, thoughtfulness, integrity and innovation. The team continues to demonstrate these values, winning a number of awards!
With a variety of projects underway, and a few additions to the management team, which we will be announcing in our next issue, Probuild NT looks to be starting the new financial year well.
