A key role of the OGA is to implement design review mechanisms to improve the design quality outcomes of public and private sector development. Currently in establishment phase, the State Design Review Panel (SDRP) is an independent, expert design review panel chaired by the Government Architect. It provides expert advice to Government, its client agencies and statutory decision-makers across Western Australia regarding the design quality of significant and strategic built environment proposals. Projects eligible for review include master plans, major infrastructure and building projects, through to urban design proposals for streets, parks and other public places.
Experts sought for WA State Design Review Panel
The State Government is looking for suitability-qualified, built environment design experts to join the newly-established Western Australian State Design Review Panel.
The Panel will help improve the design quality of major State, local, and private sector buildings and infrastructure projects.
It will bring together a pool of some 40 qualified professionals from a range of built environment disciplines including architecture, urban design, urban planning and landscape architecture, as well as specialists in sustainability, heritage, accessibility, public health, and master planning.
The Panel, to be chaired by the Government Architect, Geoff Warn, is part of the State Government’s Design WA initiative that aims to put good design at the heart of development and which includes a design review guide, updated R codes, and a State planning policy to guide the development of the built environment.
Expressions of interest close 2pm, Friday 21 December 2018. Contact Barbara Gdowski, State Design Review Manager at email@example.com or 6551 9748 for more information.
