Lachlan is a Director of COX, responsible for overseeing international and national urban design and planning in Sydney. He has extensive knowledge of urban design and city-shaping principles and practices which he has used in a broad range of projects over his career at COX.
He has project experience across a range of disciplines and scales, with a large proportion of work occurring within planning proposals and considered urban design and public domain responses. These responses include, city-scale strategic plans, structure plans, master plans, urban design solutions, international design competitions, integrated transport planning, public domain design and the preparation of vehicles for implementation e.g. through urban design guidelines and development applications.
In addition, Lachlan has undertaken the coordination of many multi-disciplinary projects including managing client, consultant and community participation and the preparation of planning approvals and applications, urban design and planning reports, and 3D visualisations of proposals.
He possesses a variety of critical thinking, researching, analytical and modelling techniques and is proficient in a diverse range of computer programs allowing for seamless integration of information across platforms and media. This has led to the development of a dynamic urban design model, which is employed on all projects to ensure less time is spent on analysis and more time spent on design and critical thinking.
