Already home to 1.74 million people, the Western Australian city of Perth is growing still. Curtin, the state’s largest university, wants to support this growth by attracting and creating high quality jobs, innovative businesses, smart people, and international researchers and students.
Its vision for the future is the creation of Greater Curtin – a new community that will transform its isolated suburban campus in Bentley into a vibrant and diverse community hub.
Greater Curtin will be a place where innovation and opportunity coexist, where businesses and entrepreneurs can exchange knowledge, where creative relationships are forged between colleagues, and where students and academics will rub shoulders with some of the most dynamic and exciting businesses and community groups in Australasia.
AECOM’s diversity of talent and global reach meant our planners and engineers could work in sync to deliver a master plan that is not only conceptually stunning, but research and evidence-based.
The Greater Curtin Master Plan aligns with the Western Australian Government’s strategic plan for 2031 and beyond, delivering benefits such as:
- Diversity of activity to foster vitality and catalyse synergies between business and academia, research and practice
- Innovative and integrated district-level energy, waste and water infrastructure
- Highly connected movement networks that prioritise people over cars
- High quality built form and distinctive public realm and landscape.
Curtin chose AECOM to bring its vision to life based on what it had seen around the world. Our projects in locations as diverse as the Cayman Islands, Dubai and across the United States illustrate our depth of experience in higher education projects.
