      Ark Homes Liquidation

      Mr Giles to the Minister for Lands and Planning;


      In relation to Northern Projects Management Group trading as Ark Homes:

      1. Was Northern Projects Management group or Ark Homes registered in the Northern Territory as a building practitioner.
          Neither Northern Projects Management Group (NPMG) nor Ark Homes are registered in the Northern Territory as a building practitioner.


      2. Was the department aware of the trading of Ark Homes, in particular when was it advised that the company went into administration and/or liquidation.
          The Department was not aware of the trading of Ark Homes until the company went into liquidation in June 2010.

      3. When did the Building Practitioners Board become aware of the administration/liquidation of Ark Homes.
          The Department advised the Building Practitioners Board on 10 June 2010 that Ark Homes had gone into liquidation.

      4. What steps did the department or the Building Practitioners Board take in relation to the changed status of the companies.
          As neither company was registered or was required to be registered to undertake work outside of Building Control Areas, there was no action for the Department or the Building Practitioners Board to take.

      5. What steps did the department take in relation to advising clients with building permits with Northern Projects Management or Ark Homes
          A search of the building permits database found that there were no building permits registered under the company name or trading name. Accordingly, there is no further action for the Department to take.
