Established in May 2007, DICE is a proudly 100% Indigenous owned and operated company that has become a leading service provider to the construction industry in Darwin, throughout the Northern Territory and now right across Australia.
Originally starting in electrical contracting, DICE now also has a strong focus on smart energy, project management and construction.
DICE provides installation through to repairs and maintenance for all business types. DICE’s licensed technicians offer the best expertise and experience for each particular job or project.
DICE has a presence in remote regions, delivering essential services for those most in need. This includes providing smart energy solutions, construction, assisting communities find self-sufficiency in agriculture and food production through the successful negotiating of “make to take agreements” that have provided jobs and income for the community with local food suppliers.
In urban areas, DICE continues to deliver quality work for customers including local and federal government, Broadspectrum, Serco, Ventia and Laing O’Rourke.
DICE recently acquired Lightning Electrical and created an electrical major projects division. They have won two contracts under the Indigenous Procurement Plan in support of Defence and Infrastructure work in the Northern Territory and for the Commonwealth government.
DICE originally stood for Domestic, Industrial and Commercial Electrical, as Raymond Pratt, founder, followed his early dream of using his qualification as an electrician to build a successful business. Although the early success of DICE was built off the back of being a successful electrical contracting company, Raymond realised that to build the company of his dreams, a company that would be the vehicle to make a positive difference, DICE would need to evolve and step outside the realm of electrical contracting. DICE is still an industry leader in the field of electrical contracting but the company name and brand DICE, now stands for so much more.
DICE has become a multi facet, ever evolving platform delivering work in all aspects of the construction industry. By working with other industry leaders in their field and continuing to find people and companies who share similar visions and values, the dream has now become a reality. DICE as an acronym can have several different meanings with none more important than DICE:
Dedicated to Indigenous Communities and Employment.
DICE is an agile company, leading the way into the future without forgetting where it came from. It holds fast to its values – reliable service, trustworthy dealings and helping those most in need.
