I have an upcoming project

We'd love to hear about your vision, and talk about how we can help you bring it to life by uniting the skills of our teams.

We assemble project teams across the disciplines of Architecture, Interior Design, Landscape Architecture and Heritage, to create life-changing environments across Education, Community, Secure Spaces and Wellness spaces.

James Ward

Chairman, Director - Strategy and Finance

“Architectural design ‘future proofs’ our built environments. It transforms the mundane to the extraordinary.”

James is a business strategist responsible for the development of communication and growth opportunities at NBRS. His focus is to guide research and to establish long-term creative partnerships with our clients and consultants. This collaborative exchange of knowledge and ideas helps to shape our communities and create life changing environments.

James has worked in the USA, the UK and Australia, drawing on his Masters in Business to gain experience with many varied commercial situations and develop strategic long term plans to support expansion. His strength is his ability to understand complex situations and develop strategies that guide the implementation of improved outcomes that can change the way people think and live. He is skilled at facilitating public and statutory consultations, handling multiple stakeholder representations as well as obtaining collective decisions and approvals.

He also works closely with our clients to develop considered design briefs that fully encompass their requirements and desires. He has recently worked collaboratively with clients such as NSW Department of Education, The University of Sydney and Macquarie University to achieve their goals.
