Jonathan Evans

Job movements

On the architectural front architect Jonathan Evans who appeared at our Tomorrowland 2017 event with a presentation on mass timber construction, focused on his pioneering Barangaroo work, has left Tzannes after nearly 24 years. He’ll now focus on his own practice, Arbortect, specialising in timber construction and consultancy.

At Tzannes he was made director in 2001 and an owner in 2007. His former studio honoured his contribution over the years, which included “over 100 major projects,” including “the multi-award-winning International House and Daramu House commercial buildings at Barangaroo”.

Also moving is Andrew Cole who’s leaving Lendlease as general manager sustainability to take up a senior role with Charter Hall. It’s been a long gig. Cole started with the behemoth in 2010 as business development manager, having been recruited from the NSW planning department.

Our pick of the jobs

Another pick of the jobs, another city council looking for a sustainability planner. This time it’s Maroondah City Council in Melbourne’s east.

The Council’s vision is by 2040 to create a sustainable community, surrounded by an enhanced natural environment, which is also a leader in its climate change response.

As well as developing sustainability and climate action strategies and engaging with the community to garner support, you will represent the Council on the Eastern Alliance for Greenhouse Action. 

We know about the power of small government to create big impact sustainability initiatives and this is an opportunity for someone to make their mark on the industry and on the city of Maroondah. 

If the hustle and bustle of Melbourne is less your pace, consider joining the team at the University of Canberra as their new sustainability coordinator. 

As an organisation looking to grow, UC needs a sustainability boffin like you to help manage all capital works projects across the University campus and property, with a strong focus on environmental responsibility and sustainability

Despite its reputation, Canberra is a great city to live and work in (really!) and joining the university could be a good way to meet bright people while flexing your sustainability ambitions. 

The ACT is a national leader in sustainability and home to exciting projects like a gas-free suburb and an all-electric hospital. As such familiarity with the Territory’s unique legislation in relation to climate change initiatives and sustainability is desired.

Although they are offering close to 100 grand as well as a whopping 17 per cent super. You could handle the cold for that right?
