Anzac Hall was a particularly sensitive project. Hindmarsh was engaged to undertaken the upgrade works as an integral part of the larger War Memorial precinct, which is of very high national and cultural value.
The goal was to enhance the recently completed internal refurbishment of the Anzac Hall, and improve the circulation flows of visitors through the War Memorial and its surroundings. This complex project was undertaken in carefully planned and separated stages. This flexible methodology ensured that the War Memorial could remain open and operational throughout the works.
All construction workers were made aware of the symbolic importance of the precinct and the need to act at all times in an appropriate manner.
Through careful project planning and supervision, Hindmarsh minimised the amount of contact in sensitive areas of the Memorial and planned at all times for the absolute minimum impact on overall operations across the site.
The original completion date of March 2001 was extended to June 2001. Hindmarsh was engaged to complete additional fitout works requested by AWM which were not in the original delivery scope. Working in collaboration with AWM, Hindmarsh was ultimately able to reduce the overall War Memorial works program.
