CARLTON CONNECT INITIATIVE Bid Coordination

Confidential Client – Melbourne, Australia
Facilitation, Strategy, Delivery

The Carlton Connect Initiative (CCI) is the University of Melbourne’s newest project: an innovation precinct, designed to position world-class talent with 21st century technology in the heart of Melbourne. Planned to be built upon the former Royal Women’s Hospital site adjacent to the main campus, the University wants CCI to drive partnerships between different sectors and disciplines, and between research and industry. The development opportunity will see the delivery of a significant city precinct, designed for multiple uses across education, research, industry, and public realm, with a new outpost of the internationally acclaimed Science Gallery forming the front door of the precinct.

Left Bank Co. were invited to join one of the competing proponents in preparing and coordinating the bid, and bringing together a large team under one unifying strategy for the precinct. The scope of works included preparing and managing the production program to guide all team member and consultants; management of all inputs and revisions to ensure content met bid requirements; carrying out the role of editor-in-chief of the bid submission to manage the strategic story and consistency in content; and coordination of the design and production with the graphic team.

The successful proponent is to be announced in early 2017, and development will begin later in the year. Read more about the Carlton Connect Initiative here
