Alderson and Associates Landscape Architects is a specialist landscape design and planning service which has operated in Central Queensland with Nick Alderson as the principal, since 1997.
Nick Alderson had previously practiced landscape architecture in local government for 12 years prior to setting up his own practice and, as such, the consultancy represents the evolution of the former local government operation into the private sector.
During its period of operation the practice has gained a wide range of clients and this is reflected in the variety of project developments, including: the Lake Awoonga recreation areas, regional and local parks, University of Central Queensland, (Gladstone campus), industrial sites, child care centres, aged care accommodation, regional hospitals, commercial and residential developments and rural holdings.
Nick and his design team have gained a reputation for providing both innovative and cost effective design solutions for their diverse range of clients.
In October 2008, Nick relocated to the Northern Rivers area of New South Wales and opened a branch office near Lismore. A number of projects have already been completed in regional NSW including the redevelopment of the Narrabri Hospital.
Derek Bacon manages the Central Queensland office which operatse from a Gladstone base. Nick continues to service his Central Queensland clients and travels regularly between both regions.
