Beca appoints new transport planning expert

Transport planning and modelling expert Paul Stanton has joined Beca as a Principal in the Transport and Infrastructure team, based in Melbourne.

Beca’s transport team, including planners, modellers and digital technology experts is experiencing growing demand as cities face unprecedented growth. Applying integrated transport and land use planning, advanced modelling techniques and creative design as well as new technologies, the team partners with government and private sector clients to create smarter, more liveable cities.

Paul joins Beca with 37 years of built environment experience across the public and private sectors in the UK and Middle East. Most recently, he was Head of Modelling (Middle East) at IBI Group.

Paul began his career in architecture and surveying, transitioning to transport planning in the 1990s – initially in local government and then at several international consultancies. His work has covered policy development, business case preparation, transport master planning, strategic transport modelling, smart travel and urban design.

At Beca, Paul is taking a long-term view to making everyday better for people living in growing cities like Melbourne, Sydney and Auckland, bringing a range of skills to complement our current offering.

“I’m particularly excited about Beca’s approach to shaping our cities and making them more sustainable and resilient – particularly as it sometimes challenges current thinking behind how we plan and fund city growth.  I’m excited to help bring Beca disciplines together to help people living in cities to set the agenda themselves,” he says.

 “Increasingly, city leaders are realising that tackling this problem imaginatively can deliver significant quality of life improvements,” he added.

Damian Pedreschi, Beca’s Group Director - Transport, said, “It’s exciting to see the growth in demand for our integrated transport planning and modelling services.  Creating better urban environments using innovative ideas is core to our purpose ‘make everyday better’.  Paul’s extensive international experience in transport planning and modelling make him a great addition to this team.”
