Marninwarntikura is an Aboriginal organisation in remote Western Australia with vision “We strengthen the power of women and their families to create culturally rich, engaged and healthy lives for Indigenous peoples living in the Fitzroy Valley and beyond”. As part of the services Marninwarntikura provides, a women’s refuge shelter was established some 20 years ago. The shelter continues to be in operation 24 hours 7 days a week.

Marninwarntikura seeks to upgrade and renovate the shelter facility. The existing facility has some design features which continue to be serviceable. The structure is predominantly corrugated steel clad and is in reasonable condition. Because the design and structure are basically ok, our unqualified and amateur assessment is that the amount of design and construction/ renovation work is not considered to be extensive.
