Territory Generation, which is wholly owned by the NT Government, did not seek advice prior to committing to the $75m new power station from a prize-winning Alice-based firm which has renewable energy contracts throughout the Pacific region, and designed the Hilton hotel rooftop solar array (pictured), the largest in the southern hemisphere at the time.

The Alice Springs engineering firm CAT Projects has been acknowledged as the Northern Territory Regional Exporter of the Year, for its success in building an export market for its services and practical solutions in countries as far reaching as Nepal, the Philippines and Kenya.

The architectural design for the redevelopment of the northern end of Todd Mall and Parsons Street is all but complete. The key visual features of the design are the moth-like shade structures, which will be placed in a number of clusters along the eastern side of the mall and the southern side of Parsons Street. Their central poles will be used to support much of the street furniture that at present clutters the street-scape. This includes CCTV cameras, bike racks, rubbish bins and lighting. Some of the moth wings will also become the canvas for public art work, the brief for which is also nearing completion. KIERAN FINNANE reports.
