The 2021 Australian Infrastructure Plan is focused on identifying the actions required to deliver infrastructure for a stronger Australia and support our national recovery from the still-unfolding COVID-19 pandemic.
With a strong focus on a place-based approach to infrastructure delivery supporting sustainable and resilient communities, developing sector models demonstrating the impact of infrastructure from our fastest growing cities to our most regional areas was needed.
What we did:
In partnership with Infrastructure Australia, Astrolabe developed 11 factsheets with visualisation of essential infrastructure sectors: transport, telecommunications, energy, water, waste and social (education; health and aged care; social housing; arts and culture; green blue and recreation spaces; and justice and emergency services).

Infrastructure models of key components of each sector were developed, which also demonstrated differences between our fastest growing cities through to remote areas. Supporting text describes how each infrastructure sector operates and how the sector is governed, managed, and regulated.

Astrolabe’s approach was highly collaborative. A co-design process ensured engagement across the content developers of the Infrastructure Plan to ensure they play a valuable role in contextualising and understanding each infrastructure sector.

“The Sector Models add real value and are a great jump off point for the chapters. Thank you for this important contribution.”
