Acton Waterfront Park Project


The Safe Design Australia team recently had the pleasure of working with Aspect Studios’ design team on the ACT’s Acton Waterfront Park project.

This project forms part of the National Capital Plan’s vision for a cultural and entertainment precinct on Canberra’s iconic Lake Burley Griffin waterfront. The design features new open spaces, improved connections with the city centre, better access for water activities and a celebration of the site’s history and national significance.

Check it out HERE.

The initial Safe Design workshop was very successful, reflecting the level of expertise and engagement brought to the table by the consultants and client representatives who attended.

Check out the project and others on Aspect Studios site HERE.

Thanks Aspect Studios, we look forward to working with you again! – Safe Design Australia


CPTED – Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design

Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) uses urban and architectural design and the management of built and natural environments in an effort to prevent crime.

CPTED principles and practises seek to deter offender decisions that precede crime, reduce opportunities for victim based crimes and assault and build a sense of community amongst either residents or operators to reduce the incidence of crime.

Planning Design and Urban Management can play a large role in keeping towns, cities and structures safe – as do many other disciplines.

CPTED is a holistic approach that can require input from different disciplines.

Here at Safe Design Australia we offer a comprehensive approach to our CPTED reports from our specialist consultant. Contact us here for a fee proposal or with queries about a project.
