Aurecon’s new Architectural and Urban Design Interface capability combines form with function

Global engineering and infrastructure advisory company Aurecon is increasing its focus on community-centred design and functionality with a new appointment bridging the gap between engineering design and the community.

Heath is a landscape architect with 18 years’ experience spanning government and consulting across Australia, the Middle East, China, Indonesia, and New Zealand

28 September 2018 – Global engineering and infrastructure advisory company Aurecon is increasing its focus on community-centred design and functionality with a new appointment bridging the gap between engineering design and the community.

In September, Aurecon appointed Heath Gledhill as Architectural and Urban Design Interface Leader in recognition of the importance of architectural and urban design in the delivery of infrastructure.

Heath will focus on the infrastructure market, working to identify and support opportunities internally within teams to maximise innovation and design-led solutions. Drawing on his extensive global design experience, he will provide a cohesive interface between Aurecon, clients, stakeholders, and external consultants to maximise alignment and achieve optimal results around collaboration and design.

Holding qualifications in design, management, and business, Heath is a landscape architect with 18 years’ experience spanning government and consulting across Australia, the Middle East, China, Indonesia, and New Zealand. He led the landscape architectural design delivery on projects including the Victoria Desalination Plant, Victoria Regional Rail Link Packages E & F, and Caulfield to Dandenong Level Crossing. His extensive experience working in the Middle East includes working on the Jumeirah Central Masterplan (formerly known as the Mall of the World) and City Walk Central Park in Dubai.

Aurecon Infrastructure Leader – South Australia and Victoria, Georgina Mahony, said the new role was driven by the need for projects to now benefit communities and inspire engagement with users, in addition to functioning well.

“Heath’s new role will provide additional value to clients in terms of considering how the community interacts with the infrastructure that we are designing. We are delighted to have him with us to push the engineering design envelope with creative, human-centric thinking,” Georgina said.

Heath is looking forward to extending his expertise in this burgeoning field, and said that coming to Aurecon felt a natural choice given his previous experience with the company on large scale infrastructure bids.

“I have a passion for contributing to significant city shaping projects and look forward to working with people across Aurecon to see how we can continue to innovate through design. While I am Australia-based, I will be drawing on my global experience and connections to help offer designs solutions and grow this capability throughout the group.”

Heath recently completed his MBA at the Australian Institute of Business.
