The project is being undertaken at the LIA buildings within the
residential precinct in the south-west portion of the base. The
RAAF Darwin LIA Refresh Project consists of 16 buildings,
15 of which are heritage listed, dating from 1940/1941 and
examples of tropical type housing being modified to function
as barracks and dormitories.
It is intended that this project will undertake internal and
external refurbishment works in line with the Burra Charter in
staged sections, following the current MFPE and the current
Heritage Management Plan.
Refurbishment works include ceiling works, internal patching
and painting works, replacement of and/or repairs to carpet,
joinery, tiles, air-conditioning units, toilets, fittings and
associated upgrade works.
