DTAC was proud to be involved with The University of Melbourne’s innovation precinct, Melbourne Connect, found adjacent Swanston Street on the former Royal Women’s Hospital site in Carlton. The $360m project was the result of a partnership between The University of Melbourne and a consortium led by Lendlease.
The Ivanhoe Library and Cultural Hub is a state of the art facility located next to Banyule’s iconic art-deco Town Hall in Ivanhoe. The $23m project offers a host of much needed facilities aimed at supporting learning, culture and increased community engagement around the greater Ivanhoe council area. The building and associated outdoor plaza provides flexibility and multipurpose spaces to suit a wide range of community needs.
ISPT George Place
DTAC was contracted by FDC Construction for the recently completed ISPT George Place redevelopment project. The project unites three buildings in the heart of Sydney’s CBD: 345 and 363 George Street and the heritage-listed 24 York Street. The striking transformation of this impressive super lobby unites ground floor levels of the three buildings with the vision to create a unique precinct that offers meeting spaces, quiet zones, social hubs, food offerings and bars. George Place combines indigenous artwork, premium quality furnishings, natural materials and lighting to provide a welcoming and dynamic environment for work and leisure.
As the access points to this stair are dictated by an enclosed landing design, that is, the approach to stair can not made from multiple directions, the TGSI area has been reduced to only 300mm deep top and bottom of flight and spread across the entire path of travel.
Additionally, as continuous unbroken handrails have been designed and installed all the way from the entry door to the exit door, TGSI’s are not required on the intermediate landing.
This is and excellent example of how TGSI’s can be minimised when they are considered as a part of stair design and not as an after thought.
No. 3 Station Pier
Had continuous unbroken handrails been used on the intermediate landing no. 2, no TGSI’s would not have been required. This would have reduced the amount of TGSI’s and facilitated better access to all persons, not just the visually impaired. Handrails also provide a safe message for the stair and should always be continuous where possible for a consistent message.
Mulgrave Country Club
Wheelers Hill, VIC
This project required a standard application of Warning TGSI’s to the top and bottom of the paths of travel between two levels of this entry. Two TGSI areas of 600mm by the width in between the path of travel (in this case in between the handrails) were employed to give a clear tactile cue for both the approach and the alighting from the stair and ramp. For further detail and information see AS/NZS 1428.4 (2002).
Melbourne City Council
This project details a shared vehicular driveway crossing an accessible path of travel where a motorist’s vision is limited. Because this vehicular driveway is part of a larger vehicular precinct, (e.g. car part or lane-way), and that the motorist’s vision is limited because of the adjacent property boundaries, warning indicators have been installed 300mm back from the kerb to a depth of 600mm across the entire length of the accessible path of travel.
The tactile pad has also been set back 300mm from the edge of property boundary all the path of travel. This is because a pedestrian would not walk that close to a wall or other easily identifiable natural tactile cue. The set back from the property boundary also allows cleaning accessibility as dirt and debris can gather in these types situations, especially on heavily trafficked environments.
Geraldine Cooper Interior Design
This project required a standard application of Warning TGSI’s to the top and bottom of the main stair. TGSI’s of 600mm by the width of the stairway (in this case between the handrails) were employed to give a clear tactile cue for both the approach and alighting from the stair.

The company pioneered the architectural floor tactile industry in Australia, taking a utilitarian product and transforming it into a feature that compliments the aesthetics of any project.
Melbourne Theatre Company
Few designers get the chance to freely envision an architecture that has the spatial impact that the new Melbourne Theatre Company precinct does. Alighting from the pavement and jettisoned up the entry stairs, this architecture from Ashton Raggatt McDougall, the latest in their collection of leading projects, presents a plethora of colour and the feeling that you have most certainly arrived.
Melbourne Recital Centre
The design details for the Melbourne Recital Centre are consistent all the way through the space. The compliance requirements of the NCC are seamlessly integrated with the interior, benefiting the public that will use this building for many years to come. Ashton Raggatt McDougall's (ARM) architecture has incorporated acoustic engineering, compliance and aesthetic appeal with the DTAC tactile installation.
The DTAC product used on this project was DTAC's DT0110 stainless steel terraced warning tactile which complimented the unique interior whilst ensuring compliance.
