Weston Williamson has boosted the senior teams in both its Melbourne and Sydney studios to deliver major new rail projects in both cities.
Peter Stevens joins as Technical Director on the Melbourne Metro Tunnel Project (MTP) and brings focussed local and regional knowledge of the design, construction and delivery requirements of large scale infrastructure projects. Additionally, Peter brings extensive Government side project development and procurement knowledge having recently been the MTP Technical Director for Architecture and Urban Design for the technical advisor to the State. Four years within the infrastructure group with an international Engineering and Advisory consultancy presented Peter with unique experiences and understandings related to the demands of engineering intensive projects. Formally an Associate Director at Grimshaw Architects in Melbourne, Peter was a key individual on internationally and regionally awarded architectural and infrastructure projects.
Sydney Office Principal Chie Shimizu brings over 20 years’ experience in design leadership to her new role as Head of Studio in Surry Hills, where projects include city-shaping infrastructure projects such as Sydney Metro Northwest Rail Link, Sydenham Station, Pitt Street Station and associated OSD studies for Transport for New South Wales.
Chie joined Weston Williamson + Partners in London in 2007 and has led multiple prestigious and award-winning rail infrastructure projects both in the UK and internationally, including Crossrail, High Speed 2 and new metro systems in Asia and the Middle East. Chie’s speciality lies in leading and assisting clients in developing effective, strategic and detailed design solutions for large, complex and multidisciplinary infrastructure projects. Earlier this year Chie’s leadership on rail projects and contribution to the rail industry was recognised at the 20th Rail Business Awards when she was awarded the Best Women in Rail Award.
Mark Kelly Managing Director Australia said: “We are delighted to welcome Peter and Chie at a time of unprecedented investment in new infrastructure in major cities across Australia and Asia. Both bring valuable additional experience and insight to our Australian leadership team. Infrastructure projects are complex in nature and it is always good to have trusted experience and delivery capacity in the team mix. Our team continues to be active in design and delivery across major infrastructure projects in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane.”
