Stockland has specialist in-house design teams within each business made up of architects, designers and in some cases planners.
They work with our customer insights team to uncover the needs of the customer and local community and then design for this. They work with the development team to ensure all design is done within a budget and timeframe.
Dale, a senior design manager says "the benefit of having this professional advice 'in-house' is that there is a quick turn around of information, the iterative approach to development achieves better outcomes and the development managers benefit from the experience of the designers who are in tune with the requirements of a development".
The Design Team has an ongoing role to ensure that the project is delivered to the high expectations of Stockland as a whole, not only in the design but also in the social and financial sustainability of the project so that the final product is recognised and respected by all stakeholders.
