The Procurement Process
CityLab was the Advisor for the procurement process that Monash University undertook when it sought proposals that fulfilled a goal of a masterplan. The masterplan needed a compelling vision of the campus, one that demonstrates sensitivity to the site, its context and the university’s needs.

An authentic and considered proposal was required as the project was complex and high profile. Landscape was a key spatial and spiritual component of the project. The responses were asked to address how the Masterplan might develop a sense of character for the campus that is contributory to the location and address transport and connections within the suburb of Frankston as key considerations.

The Selection Panel met to evaluate submissions on 16 December 2015 and were impressed by the quality of EOIs received. A total of seven local, interstate and international proponents were shortlisted for progression to the next stage - a Request for Proposal (RFP).
