Chikarovski & Associates
Meeting has been facilitated between the proponent, the Council, the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment and the Government architect to work through the options for design excellence for the Winter Sports World
NSW Government Architect (GA) advised proponent a design competition (national or international) would produce the best outcome for achieving design excellence.
GA would consider proponent partnering with an architect experienced in large scale projects in private consultation as an alternative to a design competition
(if Council agreed to the process). GA concerned that due to the complexity of the proposal that not having a design competition, design excellence would not be achieved.
GA advised design competition produces better design results compared to a design panel who assesses designs of one architect.
Council stated that they will be guided by GA advice for how to achieve design excellence because of the size and significance of the proposal on the local area.
DPIE advised they will be guided by the GA’s decision for the design process pathway
The proponent seeks an alternative design process pathway other than a design competition due to the cost and delay associated with holding a design competition and the potential risk of losing intellectual property incorporated in the design elements having to provide external architects access through a design competition process.
GA – providing proponent scenario’s acceptable to the GA to achieve design excellence.
