Nick James

Creating high quality, healthy and resilient places motivates me – environments that increase well-being, minimise whole-life impacts and provide both business benefit and social value.

During my 18 years in the sustainable property industry, I have worked for investor, developer, designer, contractor and consultant. With a training in architecture and masterplanning, my experience spans a wide range of sectors, and extends across all stages of the property lifecycle. I am a qualified project manager, green building assessor and environmental auditor.

I have a track record in delivering complex, sensitive and innovative projects. I thrive at using my technical knowledge, design thinking approach and engagement skills to challenge, optimise and solve problems at both the macro and detail levels.


We work with a strong network of trusted associate organisations and individuals. This helps us deliver the right expertise at the right time into projects. It also means that we can be focused and agile in our approach to ensure best value for clients.
