Our top 4 services for
State Government

1. Place Creation: two day "in-house" course

This course provides Government Departments seeking an intense platform for delivery of urban design and placemaking with a holistic and thorough learning process. As part of the delivery, Placefocus meet with Department managers prior to the course to maximise course learnings with the Department or Unit organisational and project goals. This cost effective model (from $200/person) enables participants to share experiences, and ultimately, transfer knowledge immediately back into their working roles. 

2. Launchpad:  three hour fast track workshop 

The Launchpad is targeted to those within State Government who may not be able to afford attendance to two days of the Place Creation course. It provides a ‘fast-tracked’ learning session, which focuses on the “what” and “why” of urban design, and is also a great introduction and inspiration for key decision makers such as Director Generals, Ministers, or MPs.

The Launchpad workshop uses examples of key trends being delivered nationally and internationally, as well as facilitated activities to challenge thinking and accelerate implementation of urban design and placemaking.

3. Online learning for your team

The Placefocus Online Course is ideal for team members responsible for new projects who may not be able to afford 2 days to attend a Place Creation course. The 4 week Online Course provides efficient and interactive training, available anywhere and anytime. 

4.  Project Study Tours

Placefocus can lead your team and consultants on a study tour of a key precinct or project development.
