IR and the Queensland Museum Network: Concept Design Review and Security Risk Assessments
In early 2021 Intelligent Risks (IR) was contracted by Queensland Museum Network (QMN) to review the Concept Design for redevelopment of the historic Workshops Rail Museum in Ipswich. We conducted a detailed review to support the decision-making around transition to a planned new operating model for the site.
IR’s report comprised a Security Risk Assessment (SRA) for the Museum; a review of existing security and the proposed concept design; and recommendations to cost effectively enhance security to mitigate increased risks associated with the proposed operating model.
Following the successful completion of the Ipswich project, Queensland Museum Network contracted IR to complete a Security Risk Assessment (SRA) and Security Review of the QM Collection, Research and Loans Centre in Brisbane.
IR is reviewing existing security controls and procedures due to the planned expansion of activities and staff for the site. Our report will provide management with clear guidance on priority hazards and measures to mitigate assessed risk levels to ensure a safe and secure operating environment.
These recent engagements by the Queensland Museum Network follow on from our longstanding security planning support for the Cultural Centre Precinct in Southbank, Brisbane. The 7.6-hectare precinct on the Southbank of the Brisbane River comprises the Queensland Art Gallery, Queensland Gallery of Modern Art, Queensland Performing Arts Centre, Queensland Museum, State Library of Queensland and public green spaces and train, vehicular and ferry links.
Since 2017, Arts Queensland has been engaging IR to support the Precinct with risk, security management and crisis management advice and deliverables. Our services have included Security Risk Assessments, the Precinct Security Management Plan, development of a Precinct Crisis Management Plan and the delivery of crisis training and exercising.
