Master Plans and Spatial Analysis are key ARINA signature services. These services often start with a desktop study to determine the Gap of existing space which is compared to applicable benchmarks. Together with consultation and site reviews this analysis is used to determine the capacity of the campus, precinct or facility.
Additional consultation guides the development of business cases, project definitions and concepts to suit the needs of the study. Where required this information is further developed into either full physical masterplan studies with a detailed stategic framework of projects or detailed project briefs.

Spatial Analysis and Space Planning

Whilst every project has its own challenges there are also unique opportunities and ARINA analyse existing conditions, conduct appropriate consultation and deliver business cases to our clients. These plan options span physical buildings through to Teaching and Learning strategies.

La Trobe University

- Bundoora and Bendigo campuses.

ARINA developed full masterplans for both campuses both of which required full fit-fo- purpose auditing of the Teaching and Learnng suites, library masterplans and retail analysis.

Flinders University

This is a masterplan for a sub-campus of Flinders University. ARINA provided all aspects of this, including physical planning. This project was delivered in two phases, two years apart. 

University of Canberra

- Urban Plan

ARINA provided all the underpinnings to the physical masterplan, including participating in the physical masterplanning process.


- Changi Campus Masterplan

ARINA worked with Kerry Hill Architects as the physical planners to provide a masterplan for all academic and accommodation aspects of the proposed Changi campus. As a ‘Design Manager’ we provided the brief and controlled the design process and consultation..

University of NSW

- Kensington Campus Masterplan

Graham Parry, who is now part of the ARINA team, was Associate Director of UNSW Falcilities Management and responsible for delivering the UNSW campus masterplan. ARINA assisted in delivering aspects of this over a period of ten years, most of which was spent working on changes to the original ‘Chesterman' masterplan which had become ineffective due to the university’s rate of growth.
