The three stages of development

The implementation plan identifies and prioritises key building and infrastructure projects to ensure the Campus Master Plan is delivered.

The plan recommends implementation through a three-phase development schedule that aligns with funding streams, lease terms and the synergetic impact of concurrent projects.
