Kate Pleban named as Director of Maynard in Australia

Maynard announces the appointment of Kate Pleban to Director of Maynard in Australia.

Kate first joined Maynard in London and on returning home to Melbourne in 2016 was key to establishing Maynard’s presence in Australia.

Applying her extensive local knowledge, Kate has been instrumental in the delivery of a number of city-shaping projects which span new metros and ongoing airport redevelopments across Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Gold Coast.

“Returning to my home city to deliver landmark projects across the transport and public realm sectors I’ve had the opportunity to shape infrastructure focused on seamlessly connecting people. Now working on Circular Quay Renewal, the project is an opportunity to capitalise on lessons learned from a global perspective, whilst ensuring our work is overseen through a local lens.”

“I look forward to continuing to guide our teams across Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane, and in working closely with our clients and partners to meet these ambitions.”

SYD Airport International T1 Opening

Last Friday marked the official opening of the new arrivals forecourt at Sydney Airport’s International Terminal. Over 3,000m2 of green space, 12,200+ native plants, 31 new bench seats, and 150 new wayfinding signs – all come together to deliver a much improved customer and visitor experience.

First Nations perspectives have been embedded throughout the design, construction and maintenance of the forecourt. Wildflower, an Indigenous led not-for-profit organisation that provides meaningful work for people facing barriers to employment, planted more than 12,200 native species, and continue to care for the forecourt gardens.

Congratulations to our design partners, Hassell, for the creation of a place that is not only underpinned, but embedded with Country.

Circular Quay Renewal

We are delighted to announce that we are working alongside Tzannes, Weston Williamson + Partners and ASPECT Studios on the NSW Government’s Circular Quay Renewal Project, providing Signage & Wayfinding, and Visitor & Customer Experience expertise.

Circular Quay is one of Australia’s most visited destinations and a critical transport interchange in the heart of Sydney, with millions of public and active transport trips to and from the area. The multi-faceted proposal creates distinctive new public spaces, as well as retail, dining, arts and cultural offerings.

We look forward to working together with the Circular Quay Consortium on this landmark urban renewal project for Sydney.
