Following the commencement of early discussions between the Batchelor
Institute of Indigenous Tertiary Education (BIITE) and Intract Australia, a mutually beneficial relationship was born.
Intract were contracted to undertake various building works at the BIITE campus located at the doorstep of the Litchfield National Park in the Northern Territory. The initial works
included painting, carpeting, asbestos removal, wall demolition, structural steel erection, café renovation and entrance signage.
With Intract supplying majority Indigenous labour, these packages of work were a great success story providing significant local Indigenous employment outcomes.
Following the success of the initial building works, BIITE awarded Intract another contract to refurbish 18 Student Accommodation Units at the Batchelor Campus. These works were
completed with a leading team of Indigenous Employees, most of whom were sourced through Karen Sheldon Training as job-ready trainees.
85% of the trainees have since been engaged by Intract Australia on full time basis and actively working in the business on other projects.
