$145 million future tender opportunity to deliver Civic and State Square redevelopment


The Territory Government is continuing to revitalise the Civic and State Square precinct in the heart of the Darwin central business district (CBD).

The Department of Infrastructure, Planning and Logistics has released a future tender opportunity (FTO) advising industry of a tender being released in the coming months to deliver the Territory Government’s redevelopment of Civic and State Square precinct.

The FTO for the early contractor involvement contract will require suitably qualified and highly experienced, multi-disciplined teams to significantly progress the remaining parts of the Civil and State Square Masterplan.

The contract will support local jobs, and bring together the final elements of the Master Plan, including the construction of the State Square Art Gallery.

Design and construction of the remainder of the precinct redevelopment will also include constructing a central heart, pedestrian sheltered walkways, artwork, interpretation and wayfinding, shading, landscaping and water features.

Bringing together all the elements of the Master Plan in one contract will provide seamless integration of the different stages of the works and better management of the staging of works over the coming few years of delivery.

The Civic and State Square Master Plan was completed in 2019, with work already underway and completed on a number of the infrastructure projects including:

  • demolition and greening of the Chan Building site
  • completion of the State Square underground carpark
  • completion of the redevelopment of the former 90 bay Parliamentary car park to create public parkland and festival lawns
  • State Square Art Gallery – detailed design nearing completion
  • Liberty Square – design tender currently under assessment.

Information regarding a mandatory industry briefing will be outlined in the early contractor involvement tender when released.
