Redevelopment of National Museum of Australia's Entry Forecourt
Show close time for other time zones
The upgrade of the National Museum of Australia's forecourt will provide a new visitor experience. The forecourt currently does not reflect the standing of a national institution and this project will not only address the amenity and levels within the works but will create an integrated welcoming experience for all visitors.
The gardens, which include lawns, paving, artworks, trees and shrubs comprised of some rare indigenous and native plants, will provide a soft landscape that expands the Museum's design language and creates a new, accessible and free public place.
The welcome garden and welcome sequence includes the construction of a structural wall visually separating the coach area from the forecourt and visitor entry.
Additional structural works include the construction of a new entry canopy at the Gallery of First Australians.
The project includes civil works, with the demolition of an existing roadway and demolition of part of the existing car parking underneath the Museum loop as well as changes to the car parking configuration and reestablishment of line marking on car parking substrate.
Services include electrical and hydraulic works with the inclusion of new event power for event spaces within the forecourt, feature lighting and security cameras, water features and watering systems for extensive landscaped zone.
Industry brief to be held on 12 September 2017 at 12 noon.
The Museum will only consider tenders submitted by entities as described in clause 7.1 of the RFT.
Practical completion by 1 August 2018
