ANZAC Hall, Australian War Memorial

Anzac Hall was a particularly sensitive project, undertaken as an integral part of the larger War Memorial precinct which is of very high national and cultural value.

The goal of the project was to enhance the recently achieved internal refurbishment and much improved circulation flows of visitors through the War Memorial and its surroundings. This complex project was undertaken in carefully planned separate stages to ensure that the Memorial remained open and operational throughout the works.

All construction workers were made aware of the symbolic importance of the precinct and the need to act at all times in an appropriate manner. Through careful project planning and supervision, Hindmarsh minimised the amount of contact in sensitive areas of the Memorial and planned at all times for the absolute minimum impact on overall operations across the site.

The original completion date of March 2001 was extended to June 2001. These extra months enabled Hindmrash to complete additional works by integrated fit-out elements which were not in the original delivery scope. Working in collaboration with the Australian War Memorial, Hindmarsh were ultimately able to reduce the overall programme for the War Memorial.

To our men and women in uniform, past, present, and future, we thank you for your service.
