The Royal Australian Institute of Architects (RAIA), Australia’s National architectural association, have commissioned peckvonhartel to assist them to identify refurbishment and redevelopment options for the building they own and occupy at 41 Exhibition Street, Melbourne.

peckvonhartel, selected from a shortlist of Australia’s top architectural practices, worked with various specialist consultants to inspect and report on the current condition of the building. peckvonhartel identified 8 potential redevelopment options and itemised their associated costs and benefits for the RAIA. The options ranged from minimal improvements to the current building, to a complete redevelopment of the site.

peckvonhartel are currently preparing a master plan and detailed functional brief that will form the basis for future renovation to the building.
