GC2018 Public Domain Implementation Plan

Any city preparing to host a major international event defines a capital works program detailing venue requirements, athletes village, transport upgrades and public domain improvements. The Public Domain Implementation Plan for GC2018 detailed those parts of the City where investment should be focussed in terms of Games profile and legacy opportunity. It was a $10million program of capital works that ensured the "last mile" into venues and the festival sites would shine during and after GC2018. These works included mall upgrades, smart pole infrastructure, lighting upgrades and pedestrian and wayfinding improvements.

To deliver this program of works the following activities were managed:

  • overall scoping process overlaid with high profile Games sites
  • development of criteria assessment
  • design and cost estimates for program
  • budget development and delivery model
  • funding successfully sourced from partners
  • management of project teams to deliver works
  • handover of assets with maintenance programs
