Special Facilities Planning and Design

Museums, Art Galleries and Visitor Centres: Our special facilities projects have focused on cultural infrastructure, with museum and visitor centre projects in regional centres such as Atherton, Innisfail and Kingaroy, and as far south as Tasmania.

Playgrounds and Playspaces: We have developed many innovative play and recreation facilities, some tailored to the specific requirements of users, such as people with disabilities, the elderly, and the very young. Customised and crafted play areas have been built for schools and parks.

Campus and School Planning Design: A model for environmentally sustainable campus planning was developed at Sunshine Coast University College. We created a system of ponds and swales that harvest all site water and infiltrate it to new landscapes. Collaborative design with students and teachers in primary schools and kindergartens have led to new retrofitted spaces on many campuses. The low budget constraints of the schools have led us to design in innovative and economic ways, finding low cost resources and materials.

Ports, Wharves and Marina Facilities: We have designed marinas, boardwalks and harbour precincts throughout Australia. In Queensland projects include piers in Harvey Bay, Redcliffe Pier, Urangan Wharf and planning two harbours in Cleveland.
