As a Darwin-based Aboriginal construction company, Warle Construction have created innovative housing ‘shells’, inspired by IKEA kits and manufactured using innovative Howick FRAMA™ roll-forming technology.

It is expected the project will create 20 full-time employment and generate $16.4 Million in revenue in the first five years.

The project has been awarded a $392,000 co-investment by the Northern Territory Government through its Advanced Manufacturing Ecosystem Fund (AMEF), administered by the Advanced Manufacturing Growth Centre (AMGC).
