He has recently led a large design team working as technical advisors on Sydney Metro Western Sydney Airport, working closely with engineering disciplines and multiple stakeholders.
Nigel is motivated by his belief that great transport infrastructure is the linchpin of future sustainable cities. He has played a significant role in the development of the Architectus Sustainability Framework and was previously co-chair of the AIA NSW division Sustainability Committee. Nigel has frequently been a guest lecturer to students at the University of Sydney, presenting and critiquing on the design of rail stations.
