Registered Australian architects and urban designers are invited to submit concepts for the redesign of Frankston Train Station, with the ultimate winner awarded a contract for the project.

The Victorian Government is investing $63 million in the Frankston Station Precinct Redevelopment to deliver a safer, more modern place of business and activity and grow investment towards the long term-vision of a revitalised Frankston city centre.

The Frankston Station Design Competition is now underway and architects are encouraged to enter concepts for the first stage of judging.

Stage 1 is an open anonymous design competition and all complying entries will be exhibited to the public. A jury comprising a mix of leading Australian architects, a Frankston City Council representative, the state member for Frankston, a Department of Economic Development, Jobs, Transport and Resources (DEDJTR) representative and the Victorian Government Architect will select five entries to proceed to Stage 2.

Stage 2 is an invited design competition and entrants will be provided with an updated brief with jury feedback, and paid a fee for their work. Entrants will work with a nominated Cost Planner and have their concept costed, and will be required to meet eligibility criteria.

The entrant declared the winner by the jury will then be invited to enter into a contractual agreement with DJDTR to deliver the project.

Stage 1 entries close on Friday 18 November.
