Guide Dogs Victoria, Kew Campus Development

Kew, Victoria



FPPV were initially engaged to develop a masterplan for
the campus and are now undertaking the design of each
new building. The design philosophy for the project was
developed closely with the client for the campus at masterplan
stage, to ensure an overarching theme and intent could be
carried through the site. The new facilities will support the
contemporary Guide Dogs model, incorporating commercial
concessions on site to support the not-for-profit work. These
commercial enterprises also provide situations for client
experience training - such as visiting the Vet or a boarding
kennel. Construction is being delivered in stages to ensure the
site remains operational and is not significantly interrupted - the
second stage is near completion.
