“The Oatley railway station upgrade has been nominated for the Great Place Award in the Planning Institute Australia (PIA) National Awards for Planning Excellence 2018. The annual awards commend excellence in planning and the planning profession. They commenced at state and territory level with a selection of the 2017 winners judged at a national level to recognise and celebrate the best planning and planners in Australia. As winner of the Great Place Award in the PIA (NSW) Awards for Excellence 2017, the Oatley Railway Station upgrade is the NSW nominee for the national category. It goes up against four other projects from around Australia, which include Todd Mall Revitalisation (Susan Dugdale and Associates, NT), Elizabeth Quay (Metropolitan Redevelopment Authority, WA), Hobart Waterfront Revival (City of Hobart, TAS) and The Railway Lands (City of Mount Gambier, SA). Oatley Railway Station was a collaborative venture between DesignInc, Tonkin Zukaikha Greer Architects, Spackman Mossop Michaels Architects and Transport for NSW. The design process involved the local community and the revitalised station now provides a better experience for public transport users. The station upgrade reflects DesignInc’s approach to creating people-focused environments that elevate the human experience of a space. It thereby demonstrates “great place” characteristics by providing improved physical and social connectivity and accessibility and sensitively responding to the heritage context of the location.” – DesignInc - http://www.designinc.com.au/ //Products Featured: Platek One Downlight
