Client: Australian War Memorial

10,000 m2  of expansion
3,000 m2 new gallery space
5 consultation locations

The Australian War Memorial (AWM) is the national memorial dedicated to those who have served in the armed forces. At the time of engagement, AWM was exploring options to redevelop or expand their floor space to include exhibitions to honour Australia’s participation in recent conflicts including Afghanistan, Iraq, the Solomon Islands and East Timor.

TSA were engaged by AWM to provide a detailed business case (DBC) and develop a master plan which would service the AWM for the next 50 years.

The role included:

  • Managing and overseeing a number of consultants.
  • Incorporating a building design, a galleries masterplan and a precinct masterplan.
  • Managing the technical, financial and quality outcomes of the milestones and deliverables.
  • Reviewing key management documents and establishing protocols for information transfer.

The AWM considers that TSA provided strong leadership in delivering the outcomes required for the DBC. TSA delivered the project within the required timeframes, whilst ensuring value for money in accordance with the allocated funding.

In October 2018, the project was granted approval. TSA was appointed to manage design and construction phases of the project as well as manage multidisciplinary teams through to project completion. The redeveloped war memorial will provide significant cultural benefits for Australia.
