Mihail Halkitis (OAM)
01/01/1930 - 18/08/2019
In 1960 Mihail and his brother Theo founded Halkitis Brothers (HB) as a civil construction company.
The major projects they have completed are endless from establishing headworks for five of Darwin’s Northern suburbs to ten years of laying highway in Kakadu National Park.
Commencing with HB in 1978 as a Trade Assistant John, Mihail’s eldest son, gained a diverse understanding of the business. From laying pipes and operating excavation machinery to working in remote areas and administering contracts. This knowledge and experience has enabled him to make a significant contribution to civil works in the NT.
With an Associate Diploma in Civil Engineering and 4 years experience as a trainee Technical Officer, Nick commenced with HB in 1986 as a Surveyor’s Assistant. Always involved in projects with a ‘hands on’ approach, Nick maintains these characteristics in his management role today.
