Documentation, planning & implementation

Jan 11th, 2011No Comments

We’ve had diverse experience documenting, planning and implementing exhibitions, public art and festivals of different shapes and flavours. Whether you’re looking for full service production support or just some of the services below, we are placed well to work with you on projects with particularly demanding and unusual requirements.

We can work with you to prepare and lodge Development Applications (DA). We’re familiar with working alongside artists, engineers and other stakeholders to collate all the necessary material and synthesising this into your final document. Where necessary, we can also prepare Statement of Heritage Impacts, Statement of Environmental Effects and Environmental Impact Statements that may need to be included in your DA.

Once the project is off the ground we can work with you to prepare the following documents in conjunction with major contractors to develop a safe work environment.

  • Risk Assessment (RA);
  • Safe Work Method Statements (SWMS);
  • Emergency and evacuation procedures (EEP); and
  • OH&S plan

We also work with accredited contractors to develop traffic management plans.

We develop project specific production, installation and de-installation schedules based on your project’s requirements. These are flexible documents which are managed throughout the duration of your project.

To facilitate the smooth running of your project, we can work with you to obtain all necessary permissions and meet your consent obligations with building owners, emergency services, local transport authorities, car share organisations, local businesses, residents and car park operators and the placing of public notification requirements.

We continue to work with a large network of experienced providers to ensure we can implement your project. Our services include:

  • general project management;
  • liaison with major contractors including engineers, riggers and traffic management;
  • liaison with stakeholders;
  • negotiation and management of plant hire;
  • provision of site management for installation, de-installation and maintenance work as required; and
  • provision of installation crew as necessary.
