Enhancing user experience
As part of their Master Plan, Curtin University commenced an initiative to determine how key stakeholders such as students and service vehicles accessed the Academic Core of the University Precinct. The Master Plan defines these access points as Thresholds into the heart of the campus, with a shared vehicular and pedestrian function.
This initiative aims to endorse Curtin University a world-class urban environment for study, work, research and entertainment. Objectives included enhancing safety and enjoyment for campus pedestrians, developing shared spaces for various precinct users, improving efficiency and accessibility to services areas, while adapting to the diverse topography at each access point.
Stakeholder Engagement is the key to success
APP liaised with University stakeholders to determine their current practices relating to vehicle access to the Core and assess whether new processes were needed. We provided Project and Programme Management Services to develop a Vehicle Access Management Plan (VAMP), which involved developing and implementing a Vehicle Free precinct for the University’s Core.
The VAMP is currently underway over several stages. APP is managing the works which have included the implementation of an access and security permit system for vehicles and the installation of Dynamic Bollards.
