CSIRO Black Mountain

Project 2013

The CSIRO commissioned Denton Corker Marshall to prepare a masterplan report for the consolidation of Canberra’s CSIRO facilities onto the Black Mountain campus.

The masterplan incorporates an understanding of the Black Mountain site in its entirety including influences affecting planning and development on the site.  This holistic approach is expected to avoid unexpected surprises later in the life of the project.  The masterplan includes relationship diagrams that identify the physical and functional links between departments, hours of use and public accessibility; requirements for vehicles; goods and people movement systems; carparking and any special external requirements.

In addition to the masterplan, concept design for a mixed-use commercial office and laboratory precinct was developed.  Due to Government expenditure requirements, the project is required to be split into two phases.  Phase one includes the construction of two interlinked buildings, with phase two providing a third interconnected building.
