Are you passionate about good design in South Australia? Are you a strong, clear and confident communicator with experience reviewing significant construction projects? The South Australian Design Review Program is seeking new members for its Design Review Panel.


The Design Review Panel assists the Government Architect in delivering independent design advice to the Development Assessment Commission, informed by all aspects of best practice urban design.

Since the Design Review program was established in 2011, 350 design reviews have been undertaken of over 120 significant projects throughout South Australia, with a total value of $4.5 billion.

The Office for Design and Architecture South Australia is seeking applications from all sectors of the design community to join the existing Design Review Panel, particularly professionals with experience within the fields of urban design, medium density residential design, sustainable development, education, landscape architecture, infrastructure and heritage. New members will be selected to complement the existing skills within the panel and build a broader range of expertise.

Successful applicants will be invited to be a member of the Design Review Panel for a three-year term (with an option to extend), and would attend approximately five to ten half-day sessions per year. There will also be an opportunity for suitable candidates to join the panel periodically as the Design Review Panel is now an open panel.

If you are interested in becoming a member and supporting good design in South Australia, please register your tender application (The Provision of Consultancy Services to the Design Review Panel) by 1 June 2017 through the website.

If you have any further questions regarding these roles, please contact Sonya Carthy, Senior Program Officer on (08) 8402 1885.
