The Matusik stamp of approval

One of Australia’s most prominent planning property and development commentators praises Downes senior consultant Graham Marshall for his planning reform suggestions.

In a recent blog, Matusik Property Insights founder and director Michael Matusik made recommendations for the reform, following discussions he had with Marshall.

Marshall, referred to as, “one smart dude” by Matusik, says the endorsement is very much appreciated.

“It highlights that Downes has a high level of experience and knowledge about the industry, as well as effective ways to improve operations,” he says.

“In addition, the endorsement highlights that our team has the expertise and experience to provide informed suggestions with regards to the town planning reform, while commenting in a positive light, as to how the sector might evolve.”

Marshall says the company has an in-house team of experienced planners, who deliver tailored quality solutions that are cost effective and innovative.

“Our team achieves outcomes through a collaborative approach to planning, starting with the big picture to deliver informed decision-making and by consistently demonstrating that we are the leaders on our area of expertise,” Marshall says.

The company also service clients in the energy and resource, infrastructure and spatial science industries.

Marshall is a skilled project team leader applying positive management of team members and consultants from diverse disciplines. He has successfully achieved approvals and compliance using a wide range of skills in management, planning, engineering, design, operations using a sound knowledge of planning, environmental, engineering, and legal practices. He has exceptional environmental credentials, having overseen award-winning projects, including winning the prestigious Prime Minister’s Award for engagement with a community environmental group.
