    Hey EWB:)

    My name is Dan and I’m from UniSA. I have a couple of questions that I would greatly appreciate your assistance in the Discovery stage of our project. Here are my questions (for now:)):
    1. Are we allocated a specific community for this project? If no specific community, can you give us a more specific region than Cape York? The reason for this question is that there are significant differences in the soils amongst the regions of Cape York. The composition of the soil will have a significant impact of the design and building (and subsequent cost) of the structure.
    2. What is the minimum structure size for this project? How many artifacts should the structure accommodate? Is there a requirement for maximum occupancy for viewing, etc?
    3. Is the structure and the artifacts going to be insured or are the artifacts already insured?
    4. Are these communities self-governing or are we required to go through a local council/government for design approvals/permits? Do the communities have building exemptions? If the communities fall under the jurisdiction of a local council/government, is there a specific building code that you wish for us to adhere to for this project?

    That’s it for now, I’m sure I’ll have more questions later:).
    Thanks for your help,
    Cheers,
    Dan

    Hi Dan,

    Thanks for your questions and I apologise about our delay in responding to your queries.

    As it turns out I have recently answered these same questions in another post, found here: https://edu.ewbchallenge.org/forums/topic/structures-3-2-keeping-places-for-artifacts-on-country/

    If you have any further questions, of if I missed any of your questions in that other post, feel free to comment on either post and we’ll try our best to help.

    Best of luck with your project,
    Grace
