Scope Building constructed this shelter at Watarrka National Park, in the remote area of Kings Canyon. It comprised a rusted structural steel enclosure, clad with three types of rusted perforated metal sheets designed to be suggestive of an echidna. Flooring comprised exposed aggregate concrete, with four different paver types. Scope installed rocks and landscaping to cover exposed footings.
Additional works included adding new service connections – power, communications, water, and sewerage. Inside the shelter Scope installed a new chilled water fountain, interactive TV and interpretive signage.
This project was awarded The George Goyder Award for Urban Design at the NT Architecture Awards.
The new Entry Sign was delivered by Scope Building under a Design and Construct contract. It was designed to make a high impact statement at the southern entrance to National Park on the Luritja Road.
