Heath Gledhill

Studio Director

Registered Landscape Architect, AILA

Bachelor of Applied Science (Landscape Architecture), RMIT

Heath is highly experienced in the discipline of landscape architecture in both the public and private realms. He is especially proficient in the delivery and project management on large projects such as the Victorian Desalination Project and Regional Rail Link. He utilises his strong interpersonal and negotiation skills to ensure better collaboration and the successful delivery of projects.

 

Heath brings to all project teams his experience in both the public and private sector. He utilises his broad knowledge by adapting to the multiple situations which landscape generates on each project – understanding their respective complexities and sensitivities.

 

Heath’s scope of works includes managing projects of a range of scales from concept, design, master planning to contract documentation and administration for urban design and complex large scale infrastructure projects.

His success in assuring the client of a positive result is underpinned by a rigorous attention to detail, passion for delivery of quality landscape, together with excellent client relationship skills and organisation.

 

Coupled with this, Heath has developed a specialisation in the design of children’s spaces and play facilities. He is a member of PRAV (Playground and Recreation Association of Victoria) and has worked on numerous projects including early learning and municipal play facilities. He has a high educational focus when designing play spaces, ensuring that child care facilities can incorporate the garden / play space within their curriculum to teach children about sustainability and practical life skills.
