Abstract

In 2013 the Australian Parliament House celebrated its first 25 years of operation since opening in 1988. The building was designed to a brief that was prepared ten years before that.
Since opening there have been significant changes in terms of new technology, the way the Parliament operates, and the needs of the people that work in the building. Today there are space pressures, and the demands on the capacity and performance of the building are increasing.
In view of this, the Presiding Officers have requested that the Department of Parliamentary Services prepare options for dealing with these matters and ensure that the building is able to accommodate foreseeable needs. DPS has commissioned work on a Master Plan to identify the building’s current challenges and shortcomings, identify the accommodation needs of the Parliament over the next twenty-five years, and develop and accommodation strategy and precinct master plan to address these needs. The master Plan is an important, once-in-a-generation project.
The Master Plan is to generally cover the area currently controlled by Parliament bounded by Capital Circle, as well an extended precinct taking in Federation Mall extending northwards up to the Old Parliament House, and including East Block and West Block.
