Transport

Better and more connections, in a travel experience that is enjoyable and humanising, is the hallmark of great transport systems. Transport projects don’t just address the big urban issues and respond to heritage interfaces, our projects are infrastructure legacy assets.

Designing for transport is a great privilege because we make a difference to everyday life; everyone experiences and can benefit from the work we do to make places better. We aim beyond functional outcomes to marry aesthetic and function with design that carefully and elegantly serves clients and passengers, creating experiences that add comfort, security, and delight to their day.

Our transport experience is deep and broad. We are passionate about trains, trams and buses, and airports. We work with governments and private consortiums on road, rail and airport infrastructure in cities and regions around Australia. Our intellectual property is available to all our clients, including effective, tested strategies to minimise disruption to services. Because cities stop for no one.

Our transport experience includes:

  • Railway stations
  • Light rail
  • Metro
  • On grade and multi-level carparks
  • Roads and motorways
  • Airports—airside and landside

I really enjoy working in transport because it is about everyday life. It is the everyday experience of people
