DESCRIPTION:

Scope Building constructed this shelter at Watarrka National Park, in the remote area of Kings Canyon.  It was constructed with a rusted structural steel enclosure including three types of rusted perforated metal sheets designed to be reminiscent of an echidna.  New exposed aggregate concrete, with four different paver types and patterns, and rock landscape to cover exposed footings was installed.

Works for this project included adding new service connections including power, communications, water, sewerage, and paving. In addition new chilled water fountain, interactive TV and signage was installed.

This project was awarded The George Goyder Award for Urban Design at the NT Architecture Awards.

The new Entry Sign was delivered by scope under a Design and Construct contract designed to make statement at the southern entrance to National Park on the Luritja Road.  This project was completed to meet high expectation of impact and quality.
