Shrine Galleries of Remembrance

By September 6, 2013 No Comments

omtrak has been selected by Major Projects Victoria for the delivery of O&M’s Manuals and the management of Defects on the Shrine Galleries of Remembrance Redevelopment project.

In May 2012 the Victorian Coalition Government committed $22.5 million towards the Galleries of Remembrance project at the Shrine of Remembrance. The project will focus on the redevelopment of the Shrine’s undercroft space and construction of a southern extension beneath the mounds. This will create a mirror image of the Visitor Centre redevelopment, which was completed in 2003.

The development will expand and improve facilities for exhibitions, community research, and the delivery of school and community education programs. These new facilities will enhance the Shrine’s capacity to meet demand for commemorative activities during the Centenary of Anzac and World War One commemorative period (2014-18). One of the highlights of the development will be the display of a lifeboat used during the Gallipoli landing from the troop and hospital ship SS Devanha, on loan from the Australian War Memorial.

Major Projects Victoria is working with the Shrine Trust and the Department of Planning and Community Development to deliver the project.
