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 a number of separate stages to ensure that the Memorial remained open and operational throughout the works.

The 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 the overall operations of the Memorial.

The original completion date of March 2001 was extended to June 2001 by the inclusion of an integrated fit-out into the Hindmarsh contract which ultimately reduced the overall prgramme for the War Memorial.
