Our Approach

    Timeliness, accountability, loyalty, honesty, and integrity are values that are embodied in the way that we approach our role and relationship with clients.  We pride ourselves in the streamlined delivery of our projects and ease to do business with, and are front footed and proactive in how we do our work and deliver our projects. 

    The understanding of our client’s timeframes and objectives is the cornerstone to how we approach our projects - enabling us to deliver practical and pragmatic advice that achieves certainty around commercial outcomes.

    As town planners, we rely on our strong professional networks and considerable experience in the regions to assemble and tailor multidisciplinary teams to deliver our client’s projects.  We regularly partner with surveyors, architects and building designers, lawyers, economists and valuers, and other town planners to seamlessly deliver complex projects.  These relationships mean we can offer a complete range of services that are specifically tailored to specific planning issues or challenges.

    We take professional development seriously, and are on the front foot with the latest in planning reform and policy change.  We encourage our staff to volunteer on the boards and committees of community, industry and sporting not-for-profit organisations as we genuinely believe in contributing to the community in which we live and work.

    Student Planners

    Our firm, with the support of the James Cook University, strives to constantly employ student planners under our internship program. This paid program has been developed to provide students with practical planning experience within the industry while supporting and promoting personal and professional growth.  This is our way of contributing to the next generation of planners for our region.  It also helps our firm cultivate a supply of confident, well-adjusted and experienced graduate planners, and also deliver our planning services in a cost-effective manner.  Our current student planners are profiled below.
