Government Architects Design Excellence Competition Guidelines

The Draft Government Architect NSW Design Excellence Competition Guidelines replace the Director General’s Design Excellence Guidelines, 2011. These Draft Guidelines will give agencies, individuals and organisations that use them essential and practical advice on how to plan and deliver a successful Design Excellence Competition to meet statutory requirements.

Design competitions are a well-tested and highly successful procurement model; they help prioritise good design and can bring the highest quality of thinking and originality to a project.

The Draft Government Architect’s Design Excellence Competition Guidelines, 2018 revise and update the Director General’s Design Excellence Guidelines, 2011.

These Draft Guidelines have been developed following review and feedback from key stakeholders including Department of Planning and Environment assessments teams, local government representatives, agencies and industry. Information on the objectives, processes and requirements for statutory design competitions are presented in the Draft Guidelines.
