SPACELAB were engaged originally to undertake a design review of the proposed block amalgamation to inform the feasibility of a development application. The site was challenging as numerous planning and utility service requirements were in direct conflict, as were the ACT crown leases, which supported development of one block and limited it on the other.


The team worked across many disciplines to gain community acceptance, then a development approval for the site for 17 terrace type townhouses. This included lengthy community engagement and consultation with members of the public, local residents groups and also with the adjacent Blue Gum school. A detailed landscape masterplan,  statutory planning services and management of the entire DA process resulted in a DA approval.   SPACELAB then also produced 3D renders for the marketing of "Stockdale45".


" Spacelab's depth of expertise and negotiation skills were critical at every stage of this project, a project many before me had considered an impossible task due to the very real conflicts between planning requirements, neighbouring community facilities, numerous utility assets and street trees. Spacelab worked seamlessly with the architect and consultant team. My clients are exceptionally happy with the outcome. "
