Our investigation work, analysis and development of a strategic approach for your project will assist you to realise the full potential of the site including meeting the site specific needs of the proposal such as heritage, contamination, acoustic and civil solutions. We are excited by the opportunity to understand and respect the site, the existing built form, and provide future proofing for future generations.

The SHAC team has a proven track record across a range of masterplanning typologies with a high degree of technical complexity, including Airports, Marinas, Schools and Industrial Depots. Each has its own set of competing programmes, often with strict budget and siting considerations, and staging is often paramount. Masterplans require our careful, inclusive review of:
  • Site opportunities and constraints
  • Management approach
  • Operational approach
  • Life cycle cost initiatives + value adds
  • Efficient land use
  • Services Amplification understanding
  • Flexible building forms and systems
  • Staging and value for money outcomes
At SHAC we will provoke you to take a giant step back and look for all the solutions through an inclusive, creative, holistic, design led process.
