TSA was engaged in a Project Director role for Australian War Memorial to oversee the production of a Detailed Business Case providing a Masterplan to service the ACT Memorial over the next 50 years, as the client explored opportunities to redevelop the Memorial to include exhibitions to honour Australia’s participation in recent conflicts including Afghanistan, Iraq, the Solomon Islands and East Timor.
The role included incorporating a design to extend the existing building and galleries and the review and consolidation of Masterplans for the surrounding precinct. Considerable management was required to ensure the outcomes within the Business Case would meet the requirements of the redevelopment, providing a high quality solution whilst ensuring value for money would be delivered in accordance with the allocated funding and required timescales.
The Business Case was approved in October 2018, with TSA appointed to manage design and construction phases of the project, including managing multidisciplinary teams through to completion. The redeveloped War Memorial will provide significant cultural benefits for Australia.
