Development and construction

About development and construction at DHA

We advertise for upgrades as well as building and construction expressions of interest (EOI) on a periodic basis. These EOIs seek qualified home builders to become pre-qualified to tender for the upgrade and construction of DHA homes.

Between advertising campaigns, builders seeking to become pre-qualified can submit an EOI for evaluation. Builders who can demonstrate the capacity and experience to satisfy our requirements will be considered for pre-qualification and inclusion on our informal builder-panels for the provision and upgrade of DHA homes.

We release all open and select development, construction and upgrade tenders, issue addendums and receive submissions electronically through AusTender.

Applicants are required to complete and return the following documents by the closing date of the EOI.
