Site Development Plan:
The Memorial has undergone significant change since opening in 1941, without diminishing its stature as one of Australia’s most important and revered institutions.
JPW was commissioned in 2001 to prepare a Site Development Plan (SDP) to guide future developments and for the Memorial to be able to progressively plan, fund and deliver a range of projects.
It is a comprehensive masterplan aimed at maintaining and enhancing this national monument in a long-term manner. JPW have been appointed to review this key document every five years, in 2006, 2011 and most recently in 2017.
Building Concept Masterplan:
With the completion of the First World War Galleries in 2016, the focus shifted to long term planning with JPW engaged to develop a Strategic Building Concept Masterplan.
The core purpose was to create a vision for the next 100 years with special consideration on key issues such as how best to accommodate the changing needs of the instutition while maintaining and enhancing the essential character.
The Memorial needs to manage increasing visitor numbers and changing demographics. Through detailed analysis, intensive and wide-ranging stakeholder consultation, JPW developed a Masterplan for the complex site which addressed a wide range of stakeholder interests.
