Over more than 3 decades, Troppo have worked across Australia in remote and semi-remote locations. We have not only resourced projects with energy, but, prompted by the ‘tyranny of distance’, we have developed construction systems and contractual approaches to get buildings built on time and on budget.

Systems have included portables and flat-pack methodologies. Tensile structures have had their place, too.

We have built across the Top End, including in Kakadu and Arnhem Land; across the vast Kimberley; in and around Esperance, Kalgoorlie and beyond in eastern/ central WA; up Cape York, in the Torres Strait, and up and down the coast of Queensland; on islands, and in far-western and far-northern SA, and over the border in diverse corners of Victoria; and in and around Australia’s Red Centre.

More recently Troppo have begun to engage with near-Asia, and to deliver projects in the Pacific (Vanuatu and Samoa) and Africa (Uganda and Tanzania). Here we undertake ‘crash courses’ in new cultures, always seeking out knowledgeable local partners and people to make connection to traditional material sourcing.
