Season’s Greetings to you and your loved ones.
In 2018, GML has been privileged to work with many communities across a range of Australian landscapes and places—from the beauty of the Australian bushland to the vitality and transformation of our cities.
This year we have worked on major transport projects, master planning, commercial developments, parks and gardens, heritage studies, thematic histories, education facilities, museums, cemeteries, galleries, and places of significance to Aboriginal people across Sydney, Canberra and Melbourne and beyond.
Our team has made exciting discoveries through our place-based research. We were shortlisted for a National Trust award, and several projects we played a part in won industry awards. Our staff have spoken at events and conferences and published papers in Australia and overseas. This year we have hosted industry conversations to challenge our thinking and stimulate debate. We were once again proud supporters of Sydney Open and Canberra Modern. Through a range of exciting initiatives, we have continued to encourage the next generation of emerging professionals in heritage conservation and we have started planning our contribution to the 20th ICOMOS General Assembly in 2020 focused on the theme of shared cultures—shared heritage—shared responsibility.
It has been a professionally fulfilling year and we would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank our wonderful clients, collaborators, supporters and friends. GML’s offices will close on 21 December 2018 and reopen on 9 January 2019, refreshed and ready to shape the future of heritage with you.
