Waikato University

Client: Waikato University.

Objective: To prepare and obtain resource consent for a new Waikato University Development Plan.

What we did: We carried out an Urban Design Audit of the existing campus which included consultation with staff, students, neighbours, and iwi to identify perceived strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats. We prepared an Urban Design Brief for landscape enhancement of the pedestrian spine. We prepared a Development Plan based around landscape and open space, hubs and precincts, pedestrian and cycle linkages, transport and parking, buildings, artworks and signage. We prepared a Resource Consent Application including an Assessment of Environmental Effects and project management.

Outcome: Resorce consent granted. Implementation on going.
