Have you heard the expression ‘you can’t be what you can’t see’? ⠀ ⠀ Well, throwback to earlier this year when Ratio CEO Colleen Peterson received her PIA Women's Planning Network Female Achiever of the Year Award from Hansen Planning Director Sandra Rigo = two strong female leaders in planning...⠀ ⠀ Hansen Partnership is a long-time supporter of the PIA Women’s Planning Network Female Achiever of the Year Award because we believe celebrating, recognising and boosting the visibility of talented female planners helps to create a pipeline of future female leaders.⠀ ⠀ Nominations for the 2019 Female Achiever of the Year Award are now open, so start the conversation and tag a female planner you admire.⠀ ⠀ Link in bio for more information, nominations close 22 February with the award presented as part of the PIA WPN International Women's Day Breakfast on Thursday 14 March 2019 at the Myer Mural Hall.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #planning #townplanning #urbanplanning #leadership #womenleaders #womeninleadership

Timelapse footage from Hansen’s Urban Design Director Craig Czarny’s recent visit to Jakarta as part of his work with the Kemitraan Indonesia Australia untuk Infrastruktur (KIAT) program for the Australian Government (DFAT) which is designed to support sustainable and inclusive economic growth through improved access to infrastructure. ⠀ ⠀ Hansen is providing specialist advice on Transit Oriented Development (TOD) and Pedestrian Oriented Design (POD) ahead of the opening of the forthcoming MRT (mass rapid transit) in Jakarta. Here you can see the contrast between pedestrian lanes on the left versus private transit and public bus lanes or BRT on the right.⠀ ⠀ #urbandesign #transportorienteddevelopment #pedestrianorienteddesign #mrt #jakarta #indonesia #hansenoutandabout

It’s all happening in G Town! Hansen’s planning team lodged a permit application for Geelong based health insurance provider GMBHA’s new headquarters on Moorabool Street last week on behalf of commercial property developer Quintessential Equity.⠀ ⠀ The multi-million dollar nine storey development designed by Cox Architecture has active frontages at the ground floor with three retail tenancies, one cafe and a commercial lobby, 9,304 square metres of leasable A-grade commercial space, two roof terraces (one north-facing and overlooking the bay) with laneway activation and streetscape improvements on the corner of Gore Place and Corio Street. ⠀ ⠀ The new building will replace the health fund’s existing Moorabool Street office building which opened in 1963. The project is due to start in mid to late 2019 and will take about two years to complete creating approximately 600 jobs.⠀ ⠀ Image: Cox Architecture⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #urbanplanning #regionalplanning #statutoryplanning #geelong

Hansen's been busy in Geelong lately. We lodged a planning permit application for GMBHA’s new headquarters on Moorabool Street last week and recently won the tender to develop a benchmark strategic renewal masterplan for Osborne Precinct in the north of Geelong.⠀ ⠀ Named for the heritage listed Osborne House, this precinct is ripe for renewal given its proximity to the Pivot City Innovation District and the booming Northern and Western Geelong Growth Areas.⠀ ⠀ This exciting people-oriented place making opportunity will see Hansen investigate opportunities for complementary uses for Osborne House, enhanced pedestrian access and movement, support for ongoing employment opportunities and environmentally responsive public realm improvements.⠀ ⠀ 📷 Hansen Urban Design Associate Gerhana Waty @gerhana_tjen ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #urbandesign #strategicplanning #landscapearchitecture #pedestrianorienteddevelopment #urbanrenewal #hansendesigned #geelong

In case you missed our exciting news...Hansen Partnership won the the Best Planning Ideas - Small Project Award at the 2018 PIA Planning Excellence Awards for our work on the Harris Transportable Housing Project.⠀ ⠀ Led by Launch Housing and working in collaboration with architects Schored Projects and VicRoads, the Harris Transportable Housing Project is a first-of-its-kind initiative designed to help address homelessness using vacant government-owned land.⠀ ⠀ In partnership with VicRoads, the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) and with the philanthropic support of Harris Capital, Launch Housing sought approval for nine planning permits for nine separate sites along Ballarat Road in Maidstone and Footscray to deliver 57 architecturally designed, transportable dwellings for those at risk of, or experiencing, homelessness.⠀ ⠀ Hansen Partnership managed the planning permit applications and communications strategy for this project with approval ultimately granted for all nine sites.⠀ ⠀ Architecturally designed by Schored Projects, the units are currently under construction in Horsham and will be transported to site in late 2018 with the first tenants to move in shortly thereafter. ⠀ ⠀ Hansen is proud to have played a pivotal role in bringing this innovative and sector leading housing affordability project to life.⠀ ⠀ With thanks to @pia_planning, our partners and the awards judges.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #hansenoutandabout #planning #urbanplanning #housingaffordability #affordablehousing

PIA Awards for Planning Excellence 2018 entry⠀ ................................⠀ Hansen Partnership's entry in the Best Planning Ideas Large Project category is the Cheltenham Activity Centre Structure Plan Review.⠀ ⠀ The aim of this structure plan is to deliver a contemporary, people focused activity centre and a thriving retail strip, embodying employment and community life.⠀ ⠀ The review sought to identify opportunities enabled via level crossing removal projects including the creation of new sites above and around rail infrastructure, a possible future expanded role for the area's commercial precinct and a well-supported, seamless integration with public realm and a significant public open space asset at Cheltenham Park located to the north-west of the rail line.⠀ ⠀ This review focused on creating a ‘place for people’ rather than simply a list of projects - a vision widely shared by stakeholders including the Level Crossing Removal Authority, City of Kingston, Bayside City Council and the wider community.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #transportorienteddevelopment #pedestrianoriented #urbandesign #planning #townplanning #urbanplanning

Hansen Landscape Architecture team members Tylah Ingram (pictured), Xujie Fang and Sang Han recently completed a ten week 'Discovering Horticulture' course (AKA 'Disco Hort' to those in the know) at the University of Melbourne's Burnley campus.⠀ ⠀ A practical, hands on course taught by passionate industry leaders, the Hansen crew are now equipped with a solid foundation in horticulture including plant identification, propagation, healthy soils and plant selection for dry gardens.⠀ ⠀ Green thumbs up! 🌱⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #hansenpeople #landscapearchitecture #professionaldevelopment #burnleycampus #horticulture⠀ ⠀

Hot shots from the Hansen designed Charles & Mollison Street Pocket Park in Abbotsford!⠀ ⠀ The Hansen Landscape Architecture team including Director Steve Schutt and Associate Castiel Shepp have been working hard to see this project come to fruition and paid the park a nightime visit to inspect the park its full glory. We think the lighting has come up an absolute treat!⠀ ⠀ Hansen's design features the use of recycled brick laid on edge with bluestone detailing, custom corten steel planter beds and feature retaining walls, unique feature lighting, open grass areas and a striking custom-designed arbour and screen feature that references the wool mill⠀ string and gear machinery which was a prominent industry in Abbotsford in the 20th century.⠀ ⠀ 📸 @sheppca . .⠀ .⠀ #landscapearchitecture #urbandesign #pocketpark #liveability #greenspace #openspace #abbotsford
