House 8

Building certifiers advised that House 8 was considered uninhabitable prior to the renovation. The house had no ceilings, no windows and the external walls did not go all the way to the floor. Rain from heavy downpours and storms would blow into the living areas, and vermin had easy access. Significant modifications were required to achieve certification, including new ceiling battens and ceilings throughout; replacement of all wall linings, both internal and external. To gain compliance, the entire height of the roof was raised, and a new roof was fitted; all new cyclonic wall framing was installed, as well as a new concrete topping slab and a new termite barrier system.

This previously uninhabitable shelter was transformed into a modern, spacious home. It was originally an overcrowded one-bedroom dwelling. At the completion of the renovation, PIV 8 was a four-bedroom modern house.

Indigenous employment

DICE has remained committed to maintaining our significant in-house Indigenous employment levels of a minimum of 30% of our total employees.

DICE currently employs over 40 full time staff, over 30% of which are Indigenous.

Sustainable impact

Increased engagement with our suppliers and subcontractors has created positive change in the local economy, with more than $30,000 spent with sub-contractors who had direct participation onsite at House 8.
