There is always something happening at ratio: stay up to date with our project and team news here.

7th April 2017


 To further the services we can offer to our clients we are very excited to announce the establishment of an urban design arm at ratio: adding to our current services.

Providing this additional service in house, gives us the ability to provide creative solutions to our projects and complements our existing Planning and Traffic and Waste Services.

Heading up this exciting new team is Maureen Benier. Maureen is a registered architect with over 20 years experience in the industry. Formerly the director of her own architecture and urban design practice, she will drive the urban design arm of the business to successfully support the traffic and planning team.

With extensive experience in planning and design, Maureen has not only contributed to the masterplanning of residential developments throughout Victoria, but has developed the design guidelines to see these come to fruition. As an architect, she has an inherent understanding of buildings, how they function and how they can respond innovatively to their context.  Her sensitive, yet practical and commercial approach is often called upon to add value to existing projects.

Maureen’s passionate interest in the effects of planning and architecture on the built environment, social interaction, living and lifestyle is paramount to the success of her projects and her Urban Design knowledge.

Maureen will provide a range of services to our clients including urban design advice, urban context and design reports and expert evidence.

Maureen is yet another key appointment for ratio: contributing to the exciting growth and development of our team.
