The state Government is seeking qualified experts to join a new panel that will provide independent advice to improve the design of buildings and infrastructure projects. Suitably qualified built environment design experts can now apply 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 about 40 professionals from a range of built environment disciplines including architecture, urban design, urban planning and landscape architecture. Chaired by the Government Architect, Geoff Warn, the panel will also be seeking specialists in sustainability, heritage, accessibility, public health and master planning.
The initiative is part of the State Government's Design WA initiative that aims to put good design at the heart of all development and which includes a design review guide, updated residential design codes and a State planning policy to guide the development of the built environment.
Expressions of interest close on December 21, 2018. For more information, visit http://www.planning.wa.gov.au/sdrp.aspx
