The University of Melbourne Chancellery Projects Team derived their ‘Our Campus 21’ strategic plan and vision after extensive stakeholder engagement with students, faculties, and other principal stakeholders. The University of Melbourne has embarked on an ambitious programme to enhance the Parkville Campus, which has a heritage that goes back to the 1860’s.
Codicote successfully derived the initial master construction programme for The Student Precinct Project (SPP) by December 2016. Subsequently, Codicote was awarded the feasibility leadership and project management role for the eight existing structures within the Student Precinct Project. In April 2017 we were invited to integrate the nine major development projects into one independent master programme.
Our engagement included reviewing the existing programme whilst integrating the full Parkville master programme for the next eight to ten years, outlining and managing a linked 3D model that is used for both construction strategy and student experience purposes. This foundation assignment ultimately facilitates the management of all operations and maintenance activities using big data interpretation.
The nine major development projects in the current master programme have an influence on the plethora of projected smaller annual projects and new major projects in line with the OC21 Vision. The integrated master programme benefited all stakeholder groups giving a greater and timelier visibility of development activities on the Parkville Campus.
Our master programme complemented the strategy to grow the campus by more than 10,000 students to enhance The University of Melbourne’s global ranking to a top ten tertiary learning and research centre of excellence.
