Colac CBD and Entrances
Client | Colac Otway Shire
Year | 2014
Colac Otway Shire commissioned our practice and subconsultant team to prepare concept plans to advance to detailed design and contract documentation of major streetscape improvements within Colac’s Central Business District. A key element was the past Masterplan work that promoted Colac as a “City within a Botanic Garden”; given the Colac Botanic Gardens proximity to the CBD and the botanic garden’s significant landscape setting perched above Lake Colac.
Three members of our practice and most of our subconsultant team undertook detailed site analysis, community and stakeholder consultation, and preparation of concept and design development ideas, then refined as the final contract documentation of civil and landscape works and street amenity improvements. We made three presentations to Council officers and the Community Reference Group during the design process.
