Brendan Cunningham, Managing Director of BTC Constructions is a big man of very few words.
“I prefer to let BTC’s outstanding work and our clients’ words speak for itself.” And they’ve built an enviable reputation in their six short years in Darwin.
BTC Constructions are renowned for their understanding of the effects that the Territory’s harsh climate has on products, safety, quality and finishes, and have a keen eye for detail and completing jobs on time and within budget.
Their work includes multistorey buildings, public housing, remote community mine sites and defence establishments.
Big or small, from project management, architectural drawings, plastering, painting, welding services to renovations, extensions, decking, pergolas, general maintenance and shop fit-outs, they do it all.
After completing his carpentry and plastering apprenticeship in 2010, Brendan worked in various Australian cities and communities before coming to Darwin in 2014.
“I was lucky enough to be offered a couple of large fit-out contracts in high-rise buildings. I took the gamble and never looked back,” he says.
Brendan was the proudest when Jami Brooks won the Master Builders Apprentice of the Year in Building and Construction Award 2020.
“We have an excellent team, and it’s inspiring to know the young ones are following.”
Recent projects have ranged from the complete project management of a two-storey Darwin CBD building fit-out to hotel refurbishments and golf club gaming rooms.
For International House Business College Darwin CBD campus, all the internal fit-out, gyprocking, toilets, electrical, data, mechanical, fire installations and upgrades, 10 classrooms and an external building facelift.
The Darwin Golf Club’s new gaming room involved a full internal and general carpentry fit-out, specialised timber finishes, architectural coffered ceilings, decorative screening and an outdoor area.
At the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Alice Springs, the demolition, refurbishment of 235 rooms, fully fitted out with bespoke cabinetry, bathrooms with stone vanities, and loose furniture installed.
The Hilton Darwin’s lobby, new PerryBerry restaurant and Palm Court Bar & Lounge are BTC’s craftsmanship. They manufactured, supplied and installed all the custom banquette seating and provided the placement of loose furniture.
“This is our fifth hotel project in the Territory using BTC Constructions,” says Brent Tobin, Spaceergo Managing Director. “We have always found them to be hardworking, on-time and on-budget.”
