Project Description


Positive Solutions has unique experience in the planning of cultural and community facilities – from initial concept development, through demand assessment, to business and operational planning. Our specialism is reflected in projects in Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Singapore and the UK.

We have led or supported multi-faceted teams – typically including architects, cost consultants and other design and technical specialists. Positive Solutions’ unique expertise is in team coordination and coupling the skills of design professionals with our specialist industry knowledge, and with our organisational and governance planning experience.
