Local Offices Toga Opens Darwin Office In the last edition of E-News, we reported that the Sitzler Barclay Mowlem joint venture has opened a joint venture project office in Whitfield Street to accommodate its Darwin Waterfront and Convention Centre project team. The joint venture is not the only consortium developer to establish a local office, with the announcement that the Toga Group is to establish a permanent Darwin office at the Pumphouse on Stokes Hill Wharf. Toga is the hospitality, commercial and residential developer and the hotel operator and is responsible for all private development within the Darwin Waterfront and Convention Centre project. Established in 1963, Toga employs 1400 people across Australia and Europe, however this is the first time the company has established a permanent office in Darwin. Expressions of interest to purchase residential property on the Waterfront has been strong, and Toga expects to release its first apartments for sale in the next few months. Local Expertise URS Darwin Team Expands Environmental consulting firm URS Corporation has been involved with the Waterfront development for some time, having prepared the Environmental Impact Statement in 2004, and, more recently, conducting ongoing field validation testing to meet the requirements of the Contaminated Land Auditor as part of the site clean-up process. With URS continuing to play an important role in the development, the company has recently expanded its Darwin team with the addition of project manager Andrew Piggin, from Adelaide. Andrew made the permanent move to Darwin with his family earlier this month and will work alongside a number of other Darwin locals including Corrina Schenker, Mike Haynes and Cameron Clark, all of whom will be conducting validation testing on-site. The team will be lead by site validation manager John Iddles, who will continue to spend the majority of his time here in Darwin heading up the site team.
