Our Design Team Just Got Stronger

We are proud to announce the appointment of three new Design Associates to our Brisbane team: Cathy Dibden, Kenneth Harris, and Tony Mitchell. Their combined 50 years of experience at Place Design Group further strengthens our ability to deliver innovative and sustainable designs for our clients and communities.

“It is always a pleasure working with people who have an inherent understanding of what a project needs to achieve great outcomes. This is definitely the case with Cathy, Tony and Kenneth. I look forward to continuing this exceptional partnership and welcome them to new responsibilities and adventures as Associates at Place Design Group,” says Shaun Egan, Director at Place Design Group.

Cathy’s unique skill set, honed over her 20-year tenure at Place Design Group, includes a broad perspective on potential design outcomes, careful consideration of the cultural and environmental fabric of a site, and extensive knowledge of construction techniques and engineering principles. These talents enable her to create exceptional places that not only meet statutory requirements but also exceed expectations. We’re thrilled to celebrate her becoming an Associate while commemorating her 20-year anniversary at Place Design Group.

Kenneth’s technical strengths, attention to detail, and multifaceted skillset come from 19 years of experience in both local Government and private practice. He has worked on a variety of projects, including residential communities, commercial centres, resort developments, recreational spaces, and hospital schemes. With a focus on creating exceptional residential and public spaces, Kenneth brings a positive energy to every project he works on.

Tony’s 15 years of multidisciplinary experience in landscape design make him an invaluable addition to our team. Working on a broad range of project types and scales, from multi-stage urban development sites to public parks and private residential projects. Tony’s construction knowledge, derived from carpentry, furniture making, and property maintenance, informs his designs, detailing, and specification compilation.

The advancement of Cathy, Kenneth, and Tony as Associates is an exciting development for Place Design Group. We are committed to growing our team and providing exceptional design outcomes that meet the needs of the people that live, work and play. We’re proud to have Cathy, Kenneth, and Tony on board and look forward to the amazing work they will continue to accomplish.
