New partnership brings together common skills and values

Ingkerreke Commercial and Intract Indigenous Contractors are set to strengthen their relationship by collaborating on a major housing project which will see them combine their largely Indigenous workforces.

Working together on several small projects since 2014 including demolition and asbestos removal works, the latest project in Wilora will see the organisations collaborate on the demolition and construction of six new dwellings to be occupied by local families.

Intract will commit 10-12 tradespeople to the project who will provide demolition, civil earthworks, concrete slabs and blockwork.

This exciting development for both organisations further reinforces the affiliation between Ingkerreke Commercial CEO Callum Mathison and Intract Senior Project Manager Trent Carloss.

‘Given the wide scope of works on this job, it is a great opportunity for our trainees and apprentices to gain broader skills over the entirety of the project, Trent said. 

‘With the two businesses sharing both trades and apprentices, we will ultimately produce more well-rounded and multi-skilled tradespeople.’

Both organisations share a vision for providing sustainable employment and training opportunities for Indigenous Territorians, contributing to a growing number of highly-skilled and employable tradespeople.

The demolition and construction work is expected to take approximately 6 months before the current residents can move back in and enjoy their new homes.
