Churchlands Green

Project Description

Churchlands Green involved the redevelopment of the 20-hectare former ECU Churchlands Campus into a high-quality 258-lot residential development, which included:

  • Preparation of comprehensive residential design guidelines by Overman & Zuideveld, which became a benchmark and used as a reference point for several other developments, focusing on sustainability and high quality design outcomes.
  • Preparation and implementation of a detailed stakeholder management plan dealing with multiple stakeholder representatives.
  • Incorporation of sustainability principles in the project planning, design and delivery phases. The project achieved HIA GreenSmart accreditation in recognition of its commitment to the environment.

Our Role

As Development Manager, NS Projects was responsible for managing planning, delivery, sales and marketing of this premier location in Perth’s western suburbs.

The project team worked to achieve a balance between maximising the return on ECU’s investment and managing stakeholder expectations within a constrained site.
