Cardno recognised at a national level for our excellence in landscape planning

Cardno’s work on The Gold Coast Landscape Character Study has recently been shortlisted for the Policies, Programs and Concepts – Large Scale, award at the Australian Urban Design Awards. Thirty-seven entries from across Australia’s cities, towns and communities where chosen by the 2016 jury for the nation’s premier awards for excellence and innovation in Urban Design.

The Gold Coast Landscape Character Study was undertaken on behalf of the Gold Coast City Council in 2014 and 2014, in collaboration with landscape heritage consultant Catherine Brouwer and local historian Michael Aird. The study provided a detailed assessment of landscape character and heritage across the Gold Coast, defining the City’s distinctive identity and sense of place.
