North Edge, Alice Springs

Northern Territory

About This Project

This is new attractive and functional residential subdivision fronting the Stuart Highway at the northern end of Alice Springs. It is an unique project, driven in part by its former life as a tourist facility offering insights into Aboriginal culture and by the number of sacred sites in the area that needed to be respected.

Several previous developments on the site were retained, including conversion of existing accommodation units into self contained low cost dwellings. The project also incorporates new multiple dwellings and individual residences.

Greenhill provided design and contract administration, taking into account the nature and location of the site. Sewage system design incorporated future development such as inclusion of the adjoining town camp. Staff worked with relevant service authorities and state government to determine a route for the rising main from the pumping station to the existing sewer network. The work aimed to avoid sacred sites and involved direction drilling to insert sleeves under roads to avoid disruption to Stuart Highway traffic and local road connections.
