Mt Buffalo Chalet Redevelopment
June 2014 – 2016
Property – Heritage
Accuraco was engaged by Parks Victoria to manage the redevelopment of the Mount Buffalo Chalet. The Mount Buffalo Chalet was constructed in 1910 and to this day remains not only Australia’s oldest and largest ski lodge, but also an important part of the region’s heritage.
We were successfully awarded this significant public space and heritage project due to emphasis on value and through strong client relationships. As stated by the Minister for Environment and Climate Change, “Accuraco has been appointed to lead the important task of bringing the grand old building back to life.”
The redevelopment included the removal of some more recent additions to the Chalet and the refurbishment of the remaining buildings. This included a day facility to incorporate a café, visitor information Centre and accommodation in the Chalet.
Understanding the historical and cultural significance of the Chalet, we will be working closely with Parks Victoria and relevant stakeholders to ensure the long-term benefits for the park, the community and the region.
