| Updated 28 June 2021 – to reflect changes with this role and capability.
28 September 2018 – Engineering, design and advisory company Aurecon is increasing its focus on multi-disciplinary, integrated design and with a new appointment bridging the gap between functionality and future focused human-centred project outcomes.
Realising the importance of creating human centric design responses and understanding the move toward precinct focused development outcomes, Aurecon has seized the opportunity to create a strong focus within these areas by appointing Heath Gledhill as Experience and Design Integration and Precincts Capability Leader. With meaningful communication and innovation in mind, Heath will focus on facilitating design-led, end-to-end engagement with clients, collaborators and project beneficiaries.
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.
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 precinct and 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.
The appointments come at an opportune time as Aurecon celebrates a win at the 2018 National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) NSW Awards for Excellence, in the Team Innovation category, for their work on Sydney’s Wynyard Station Upgrade.
