Flinders Precinct Master Plan


Project Info:

Flinders University has recognised the need to respond to the rapidly changing demands in higher education and to attain a greater share of the global market for higher education, attract the very best academic resources and exploit the potential for associations between innovation precincts and research funding.

Holmes Dyer assisted Flinders University through the preparation of the Flinders Precinct Master Plan which has involved a comprehensive evaluation of the University’s vision, analysis of market opportunities, site evaluation and review of the strategic and governance frameworks to produce an urban village concept which seeks to merge the education and research functions of the University with the daily operation of the surrounding community, business sector and local workforce.

The concept takes advantage of, and builds upon, the new Flinders Link train line extension and railway station to deliver a pedestrian focused urban village which incorporates a retail/commercial/community hub, an activated town square, extensive student accommodation and opportunities for health services expansion (associated with the adjacent hospital), as well as a range of education, research and commercialisation spaces.
