Tim has vast experience in land development and was made a Fellow of the UDIA in 2011 for contribution to the Development Industry at state and regional levels. Tim contributed leadership for the Enviro Development expert taskforce on the Sunshine Coast Regional Council’s ‘Housing Affordability Taskforce’, Clean Tech Industries Group and Sunshine Coast University Development Industry Liaison Team.
His design philosophy is based around determining best design fit with the sites physical and natural values whilst meeting project targets for completion. His priorities include the provision of accurate documentation, the reuse of site resources and the selection of materials and elements that respond to the clients’ market sector requirements. Tim has a passion for contributing to interdisciplinary project teams tasked with determining land development strategies and programs. These skills have been applied to a range of urban communities, open space management, community facilities and urban infrastructure projects.
Tim believes that Landscape Architecture provides a framework to pursue the fusion of aesthetics and science that continually stimulates the intellect and, provides the opportunity for profound positive wellbeing. These opposing yet complementary design approaches allowed Tim to develop his brand of drawing the underlying beauty from natural systems and urban places into a celebration of their intrinsic aesthetic. Thus ‘Creating Places’ as a company motto recognises this intent of discovering in each landscape design the balanced fusion of beauty, form and life.
