The Australian National University has announced the release of the Acton Campus Master Plan — the result of 18 months work by a terrific multidisciplinary team led by Arup’s master planners and urban designers. We provided heritage input to the project in association with Extent Heritage (Aboriginal cultural heritage) and Landscape Dept (landscape).

In a re-thinking of how to approach heritage management on a complex site with layered heritage values, we developed the Acton Campus Heritage Framework. It identifies five overarching strategic objectives for heritage on the Acton Campus, and sets out high-level policies and processes for the management of its heritage values and places.
The Framework is one of three documents that support the Master Plan: the others are the Design Guide and the Energy Management Strategy. All are available for download from https://spaces.hightail.com.
The full project team included the client (ANU), Arup, Urban Enquiry, Lovell Chen, Turnberry, Mantra Studios, Karen Wright Projects and John Wardle Architects.
