Theme 1: Infrastructure –
Physical and Social
• Government and the built
environment sector must cooperate
in the development of new processes
for seed funding for infrastructure
projects and progressing designs on
key projects in advance of budget
• We will seek to develop models for
whole-of-life cost estimation as part of
infrastructure business cases.
• We will engage jointly in early
feasibility investigations to fast-track
infrastructure investments critical to
Theme 2: Urban infill
• We will work towards a ‘new
narrative’ to better explain the 30-Year
Plan for Greater Adelaide’s residential
infill targets to the community and
fully engage the community in the
infill process such that their specific,

to implement infill developments and
refocus them with a view to the ‘trade off’

• We will continue to encourage
regulatory flexibility in these infill
planning tools such that the industry
can innovate its design responses
in accordance with community
expectations and within affordable
Theme 3: Design – Excellence,

in the early planning of projects.
• We will work to ensure guidelines on
government projects require research
on project outcomes to better inform
future project design.
• We will cooperate to foster the
development of design and designers
within the state.
Theme 4: Measurable

instruments and research directions
needed to monitor the environmental
performance of the built environment.
Our results in this area must be

Adelaide might be one way of
The first state-based Built Environment Meets Parliament on
Wednesday 6 April established a new level of dialogue between
the public and private sectors on a shared vision for South
