Forum: Precinct scale living laboratories and the value of spatial data

Thursday, 30 August 2018
Event type: 

The outcomes report from this event is now available HERE

We warmly invite you to be part of this free event bringing experts together to discuss the value of living laboratories and the role of spatial information in supporting smart precinct planning and design.

The event will offer opportunities to explore the design of a precinct scale living lab as part of the NSW Government’s $720m Randwick Hospitals’ Campus Redevelopment (Randwick Redevelopment).


The Randwick Redevelopment is bordered by Hospital Road, High, Barker and Avoca Streets in Randwick and encompasses four major referral hospitals. Demolition and site clearance will commence in late 2018 and construction in early 2019.

The precinct falls within one of Greater Sydney’s Collaboration Areas with high potential for growth and increased productivity and innovation.

The Randwick Redevelopment is an excellent opportunity to build upon the success of the 2017 Spatial Data Forum held at the University of Sydney and bring together stakeholders to explore the collaborative design of a precinct-scale living lab within the Redevelopment.

By participating, you will have the opportunity to:

  • Learn about the Randwick Redevelopment and the opportunity it offers to create an integrated living laboratory
  • Hear from experienced practitioners and renowned academics with specialised knowledge, experience, and skills about the role and value of living labs and spatial data in precinct design, planning and delivering better outcomes
  • Contribute to the design of a precinct scale living lab at Botany Street, Randwick and understand the ideas, needs and priorities of industry, government and researchers
  • Meet new and like-minded people from a diversity of fields (stimulating original insights and livelier, deeper conversations) and network with existing colleagues
