Tuesday, April 18, 2017- Townhouse development- town planning, engineering and design considerations-

This month, we are very fortunate to have 3 presenters to the Brisbane Property Meeting on 18th April 2017.

Simon will open the meeting with a short, thought provoking presentation on townhouse development and will briefly outline a site that the presenters might use to outline the roles each plays and advice they can provide clients seeking to undertake townhouse projects.


The first presenter is Peta Charles from Brisbane Town Planning. Peta has extensive experience as a town planner assessing development applications for Brisbane City Council. She subsequently joined the consultancy sector advising clients, ranging from first time homeowners, other professionals and developers through to large corporations. Peta is an accredited RiskSmart consultant. Having worked on both sides of the fence, Peta knows how Council ticks and the commercial realities of property development. She will provide invaluable advice on what to look out for and avoid with potential townhouse projects.

Peta is followed by Alfred Botha, an experienced corporate and residential building designer who has played key roles in large scale town house, apartment building and green field development projects in Australia and South Africa. Alfred has property in his blood and gets huge joy and satisfaction out of seeing people achieve their dreams through property. He is also an active property investor and developer.

James Kirkwood from Inertia Engineering rounds off the presentations on civil engineering aspects to consider when undertaking townhouse projects. He lead’s the company’s project team handling townhouse development and cites collaboration and teamwork as critical features to achieving desired outcomes on projects.

There will be a session after this, where attendees can ask questions of the panel.

There will be some focussed networking being offered, following the panel session.

Registration from 6.45pm for a 7.00pm start. Finish around 9.00pm.

Enjoy a meal at the Club before the meeting (from 5.30pm) and/or a drink afterwards.

Please bring pen and paper as you’ll want to take plenty of notes! This is also a great opportunity to ask questions of the presenters and other participants. You might also want to bring a jacket, in case the room gets a little cool.

RSVP ASAP to lock in your seat as we have limited places available!

There is plenty of parking and remember, you are always welcome to bring along friends or relatives who are interested in property investing – it is all about networking with like-minded people!

I look forward to seeing you there.
