Nial Fraser

Senior Landscape Architect / Associate Partner

Curriculum Vitae

Nial is a Registered Landscape Architect with the Australian Institute of Landscape Architects with over 20 years' experience. With an extensive range of project experience, from a hands on contractor role through to overseeing large-scale landscape design developments, he has had a range of experiences that have enabled him to develop skills to ensure long term sustainable solutions of an enduring nature. Nial's horticultural knowledge coupled with his design expertise ensures signature developments for his clients.

With project experience including master planning of large-scale sub-divisions in Malaysia and throughout coastal Queensland, Nial's experience is extensive. He has been involved in detailed design and documentation of residential housing developments and commercial precincts, which have also included a one million dollar redevelopment of a public housing estate.

After developing a deep understanding of sustainability issues, Nial believes that this not only includes material selection, but also the long term cost of maintaining the applied design through the choice of appropriate plant species and ease of access for maintenance staff and equipment. His approach to design is collaborative, ensuring the client has been involved in all aspects of the design process and that the end product is one that the client has fully endorsed understanding the implemented landscape works. Nial is keenly aware of the issues confronting his clients, as well as understanding the need for timely responses and ensuring deadlines are met to agreed dates.
