Project Details

Tiwi Partners is a 50/50 joint venture between the highly progressive Tiwi Islanders, and Sitzler; one of Australia’s most highly regarded construction companies.

With an aim to deliver world class construction projects and truly develop the prospects of the Tiwi, in 2016, Pirntubula, a company formed by the Tiwi Traditional Owners, called for tenders from private enterprise to join them in competing for work on the mainland.
From the six submissions received, Pirntubula chose to partner with Sitzler Pty Ltd and the joint venture entity Tiwi Partners was established.

Sitzler originated in Alice Springs in 1957, later expanding operations to Darwin in 1976, Adelaide in 2002 and North West WA in 2014, maintaining at all times a reputation for delivering quality projects in an environmentally and socially conscious manner. Sitzler have partnered seamlessly with the Tiwi Traditional Owners to successfully deliver projects across multiple industry sectors, with a strong and continual stream of successful projects implemented for our major Commonwealth client Department of Defence.

The Tiwi Islands have a long-standing connection with Australian Defence, beginning with Tiwi man, Matthias Ulungura’s capture of the first POW on Australian soil on Bathurst Island in 1942 and continuing today with proud participation in NORFORCE. 

Tiwi Partners has built on the construction and business experience of Sitzler to deliver projects, likewise the Tiwi Traditional Owners continue to provide, grow and support local indigenous project team members, the arrangement ultimately providing a cohesive delivery model which goes beyond traditional arrangements.

Since inception in 2016, Tiwi Partners has been awarded 20 projects with values up to $45M across the Northern Territory, South Australia and Western Australia, and have quickly developed a standalone reputation for collaborative relationships and quality outcomes.
