Murray Bridge War Memorial

RPS’ project management team has supported the development of the Murray Bridge War Memorial in South Australia, a place for reflection and commemoration built within the Sturt Reserve tourism and history precinct.

Challenge

With the regional South Australian city of Murray Bridge seeing crowds of more than 3,000 gather for Remembrance Day and ANZAC Day each year, its existing war memorial was no longer suitable for these important commemoration services.

To improve the facilities, Murray Bridge Returned Services League (RSL), in collaboration with the City of Murray Bridge, designed a new war memorial reflective of the local space and culture.

With experience working on legacy spaces, our project managers were engaged to ensure the new memorial was delivered on time, and to budget.

Solution

The planning and construction of the Murray Bridge War Memorial took place over six months and was completed in time for the Remembrance Day services in 2020.

As the client representative, our project management team helped to achieve all project requirements, including:

  • Ensuring the scope was implemented as per Council’s approved design documentation
  • Communicating with the Memorial manufacturer to ensure a high-quality finish was achieved
  • Prompt resolution of all construction challenges to ensure the project deadline was met
  • Continued project updates to key stakeholders.
