Operations Plan for the
Arts NSW and Infrastructure NSW required operational assistance to support their State Significant Development Application (SSDA) for the redevelopment of the Walsh Bay Arts Precinct.
MI Associates developed the functional brief to inform the architectural design process for the new public domain. In addition MI also completed an assessment of the commercial, retail and operational strategies to develop an overarching commercial model used within a Business Case. MI also developed the operational requirements documentation for the Precinct supporting both every day mode and event mode.
The operational and commercial planning enabled the successful completion of the Business Case in December 2016. In April 2017, the NSW Arts Minister announced the project funding of $207m to enable the project to progress once the development approvals have been received.
