Invitation to Apply:  NSW State Design Review Panel

Government Architect NSW is seeking applications from qualified professionals to join the NSW State Design Review Panel to improve the quality of State Significant projects by providing independent and expert design advice.

The NSW State Design Review Panel (NSW SDRP) has been operating for more than two years and has lifted the design quality of the built environment across the State, including the Meadowbank Education and Employment Precinct schools, St George Community Housing at 11 Gibbons Street, Redfern and Estella Rd Public School in Wagga Wagga.

The NSW SDRP delivers on the principles and ambitions of Better Placed and provides a consistent, state-wide approach to reviewing and improving the design quality of State Significant projects.

The refreshed NSW SDRP will comprise a pool of 80 of the highest calibre practitioners from the industry who will provide independent and expert design advice. Members from the pool will be called upon to form panels with expertise in different types of development.

GANSW is looking for professionals who represent a variety of skills across design in the built environment, and a diversity of experience and insight.

Applications for panel members are open until 24 August 2020

There will be a virtual information session for potential panel members on 19 August 2020.
