Barker Ryan Stewart Expands Capabilities in Queensland

Barker Ryan Stewart is excited to launch urban planning, civil engineering, traffic engineering, infrastructure planning and project management services in Queensland.

The launch of these services will allow Barker Ryan Stewart to assist in providing better outcomes for our client’s projects in Queensland, from project conception right through to completion.

Our experienced team can provide urban planning, civil engineering, traffic engineering, infrastructure planning and project management services on a wide array of projects, from both infill and greenfield residential, to commercial, industrial, retail, health care, and education developments throughout Queensland.

Barker Ryan Stewart’s CEO and Director, Andrea McDonald said, “The launch of these services in Queensland is part of Barker Ryan Stewart’s growth strategy and continued focus to provide high quality outcomes for our clients.”

“We are looking forward to continuing to grow our team and capabilities to assist with the exciting growth opportunities in Queensland.”

Our Expansion into Queensland

Barker Ryan Stewart first launched its Queensland presence five years ago under the guidance of our Associate and QLD Manager, Chris Borg.

We have since successfully helped to better service our clients in the region and fill the gap that previously existed in the provision of certification services in Northern NSW to the QLD border.

“Since Barker Ryan Stewart expanded into Queensland in 2018, we have slowly but surely been gaining runs on the board with projects, and working hard on growing the contact list north of the border,” adds Chris.

“Our QLD team now have good traction on a number of fronts, and the ability to provide urban planning services in QLD will really bolster that – it’s an exciting time and we look forward to providing our high-quality services more and more in the sunshine state!”

To assist with our growing capabilities in Queensland, Barker Ryan Stewart has recently appointed Nicole Webb as the QLD Planning Manager.

Nicole joins our team as an Urban Planner with 20 years’ experience in the planning and development industry and has held in roles in both local and State government, and private practice. She has worked on a wide range of projects including large and complex greenfield and infill development across Queensland and northern NSW and oversaw the delivery of a number of State government strategic planning and policy projects relating to land supply and housing diversity in South East Queensland.

Nicole will help nurture our growing planning capabilities and team in Queensland and said, “I am very excited to join the BRS team and be back at the coal face assisting to facilitate high quality development on the ground, particularly now at a time where land and housing supply and diversity is critical. Our Queensland team is ready and raring to go!”

Upcoming Opportunities in Queensland

By 2044, close to eight million people will call Queensland home, increasing the demand for attractive, healthy and accessible places and spaces and generating a wide range of development opportunities to support this expected growth.

South East Queensland in particular is set to experience unprecedented population growth over the next two decades, supported by significant investment in infrastructure and exciting opportunities including the Brisbane 2032 Summer Olympics.

Barker Ryan Stewart is looking forward to continuing our expansion into Queensland and assisting with these upcoming opportunities by delivering better outcomes for our clients and our communities.

Our Queensland team is well-resourced and positioned to assist with any upcoming projects. If you have any queries about how we can assist, please don’t hesitate to contact Chris or Nicole at or on 07 5582 6555.
