Critically, our advice was to turn the traditional narrative for a plan of works on its head, whereby the planned intervention did not begin with the masterplanned build, move on to the non-fixed components or refurbishment of the estate, and is then overlaid by plans for the user experience. Rather, in the case of UWA, each aspect or theme of the main campus masterplan is led by the experience masterplan, in which activities inform refurbishment and new build needs. Key pillars of the strategy include both the university’s recognition of the cultural heritage of indigenous Kaatajin Boodja traditions and its adoption of a supporting environmental sustainability strategy.

Still in process, our recommendations for UWA’s activated campus have fed into the Crawley Campus Masterplan, published June 2021. Meanwhile, pilot activity-led initiatives have already seen a rise in campus dwell time, rising ATAR scores, and improved student experience survey results from Quilt, ISB and UES.
