About the project

The Moorebank Unit Relocation project (completed in collaboration with BVN architecture) comprises the relocation of the School of Military Engineering to Holsworthy Barracks, as well as the redevelopment of a series of supporting precincts.

Conrad Gargett's role included the master planning and design of a new Physical Fitness Precinct, Combined Messing Precinct and Living-In Accommodation. These three precincts support the wider Base population and were centrally located to facilitate direct pedestrian access from neighbouring operational and training units. The landscape design, also by Conrad Gargett, stitches the entire redevelopment together and exemplifies water sensitive urban design principals and planting of endemic species across an area the size of Sydney's CBD.
