Assignment task 4 brief Prepare an essay, word limit 4600 words to deliver a sustainable transformation where ethical dimensions are central to delivering one of the following projects. Your report will need to consider how this transformation will enhance the professionalisation of managing projects in Australia. OVERVIEW The Jack Thompson Foundation is planning to build homes for five Homeland communities in North East Arnhem Land in 2018. To relieve overcrowding and address poverty issues in these communities five projects have been defined to build culturally appropriate homes in these remote locations using local materials and trades where possible. A general overview of the project to create viable homes for the Homeland communities is provided below, followed by more specific information on each of the projects. The “living ground” is our term for locally found building materials which reduce the expenditure of the hardware usually supplied by goods and services from the Eastern states. The living ground culturally has significance to the local population as it has sustained these people for thousands of years. Culturally the Yolgnu have names and stories surrounding the natural world which is a part of their culture. The living ground includes the milling of local timber; stone in the form of iron stone i.e. the quarrying and cutting of stone for arches, columns and landscaping suitable earth materials for pressed earth bricks made on site, and knowledge transfer in bricklaying form work rendering trades. The use of sand and gravel found in the local creeks reduces the cost of concrete in remote locations. Natural resources are to be used in the construction. These materials include: pressed earth bricks; stone; gravel found washed in creeks; sand; cyclone rated timber roofs; and timber doors and windows. The buildings are to be engineered and architecturally designed, and will have solar passive thermal mass performance tested structures. The planning must be in line with cultural beliefs. Landscaping and fenced areas are to fit the waste water utilization processes to reduce the advent of preventable diseases. The Homelands we are servicing in these projects are considerable distances from each other, as are the resource base found in the living ground. The projects need to manage the logistics of the distance and different clan groups within the North East Arnhem region, refer to Indigenous map of the region. The consultation with indigenous people with JTF Engineers and architects on country will also be a part of the process, as will seeking community approval for access to sacred sites. PROJECT 1: ABLUTIONS BLOCK Build an ablutions block containing toilets, showers, laundry, and washbasins. The building is to be in two parts separate to each other as people do not want to go to the toilet where social interaction is occurring around the shower and laundry. The building is constructed of rendered rammed earth bricks with a concrete floor tiled with local slate. The roof is constructed of Darwin Stringy Bark and Iron wood timber sourced from each homeland. The ceiling is made of tea tree lining (white timber) boards sourced from Beswick homeland in Central Arnhem Land. The resources for the Ablutions Block are sourced from the following locations: • Brayn Brayn homeland • Gurrumu • Dhalunbuy • Mata Mata PROJECT 2: INDIEGOUS RESTAURANT Build a restaurant to service Brayn Brayn homeland. Brayn Brayn is a part of a combined homeland tourism business where each homeland displays different aspects of indigenous culture. Brayn Brayn is the site where tourists are staying each night in accommodation built from rammed earth and timber structures. The building is 4 metres high to alleviate 40 degree temperatures in the summer, 18 metres long and 12 metres wide, with the kitchen 10 x 8 metres. It is to be built from rammed earth for the floor, and walls, and the roof is an open plan with tea tree lining boards on top of the rafters. The building has 4 metre verandas with covered walkways between the accommodation and the restaurant. PROJECT 3: HOUSING Build five bedsits in five homelands homes to accommodate elders without family. The bedsits fit into the JTF 1st year building program for teaching unskilled labour. The buildings are five in each homeland as the need for elderly housing is acute. The five bedsits are 10 x 7 metres, encompassing a bedroom and a lounge, with a 4-metre veranda around each, with a covered walkway between each bedsit. In the centre of the semi-circle of buildings is a roofed area with 1.2 metre rammed earth walls rendered with an open fire pit in the centre. On the southern side and the northern side of the open plan building are solid walls to the roof. The building is a combination of rammed earth and pole frame. Behind the buildings are a toilet block and a washhouse for each resident with covered walkways between. The floor is rammed earth with 1-metre high concrete footings to enable a metre thick rammed earth floor with ochre colours added to display the dreaming stories. Local considerations, such as culturally appropriate housing which relates to no doors facing each other, as this interferes with the sorcery world, and poison cousins should not be looking at each other in the orientation of the housing estate. The front door and the back door cannot be on the same directional aspect as this allows the bad spirits to enter a house and take the spirit of a loved one straight out the back door, so doors need to be on opposing walls. The homes will need to be solar passive with ventilated roofs (peaked scallion), with 4-meter high ceilings to reduce the heat flow within the building, and ramps on the entrances to facilitate access for aged people. Bush tucker gardens will be surrounding the estate for easy access to food sources. People on country are family and as such they spend a great deal of time doing family tasks like washing or cooking together - these are social places not just functional places. PROJECT 4: SCHOOL Build a school to service children from Kindergarten to Year 10 in Arnhem Land. No indigenous person in North East Arnhem Land has ever been to a fixed school program. The education Department flies a teacher into a homeland in the morning from Gove; they stay until lunchtime and then fly to another homeland for the rest of the day. At night they are flown back to Gove and may not return to the original homeland until some months in the future – maybe. In general, there are no high schools in Homelands. In Arnhem Land people either do not attend school or only to Year 8. The teacher does not stay because there is no teacher accommodation in each homeland nor is their housing for residents, including the children. Hence, the task is to provide a residence and classroom for 30 students from the ages of primary to year 12. Building a study room and a classroom for a remote air school is possible, with the teacher being able to live on country. The school will be required to service both parents who are involved in Bilingual education. Accommodation required is a classroom for primary students, a room for years 8-10, and a study room for years 11-12. PROJECT 5: COMMUNITY HALL Build a Community Hall to service the Wanduwuy homeland situated next door to Brayn Brayn to accommodate the cultural tourism of showing tourists customary dance. This building requires the construction of rammed super adobe seating for the tourists in a ‘three high’ arrangement. Include a sand enclosure in the centre of the arena with enough area to have 40 people dancing. No accommodation currently exists for multiple community use in any homeland. Some basic constructions exist but with no halls for basketball, soccer, indoor cricket, or meetings for 100 people to conduct ‘sorry business’, funerals, etc. The Community Hall will be required to service the five homelands for tourism and general community based functions.

Introduction

Sustainability is the bridge between development and environment. For example the simple question which it puts forward is how many trees can be cut and still growth in forest can be anticipated. The World commission of environment and development (WCED), which is a body created by the United Nation, published a report in 1987. The report is also known as the “Brundtland commission report”, on the name of the then head of WCED Mr Gro Brundtland who was former prime minster of Norway and former head of World health Organisation. The report defines Sustainable development as a development that meets the requirements of the present generation without compromising the capability of forthcoming generations to meet their specific needs. (Rogers, jalal & Boyd; 2008)
