Arts & Culture

We have extensive experience in the arts and culture sector delivering significant cultural projects that make a vital contribution to the community.

Our capability extends throughout the entire project lifecycle, from strategy through to delivery and operational assets that support cultural institutions, artists, performers and operators.

We understand the arts sector requires innovative and compelling solutions to acquire capital, and that maximum value needs to be leveraged from the project investment.

We have helped our clients achieve short term and long term goals delivering projects through the application of new procurement models and asset acquisition strategies for some of Australia’s most iconic projects in the Arts.

Since 2005 our project teams have been committed to making positive impacts in the community, delivering high profile arts and museum cultural projects including significant heritage listed buildings and structures.


Having been involved in many city-shaping projects we provide:

  • multidisciplinary services across the project lifecycle
  • business case development and feasibility studies
  • project management and superintendency services
  • asset management reliability based investigations
  • preventative maintenance schedules
  • identification of asset-reliability improvements
