AILA-RMIT Lectures #3: Deiter Lim of Tract Consultants

The third in the AILA-RMIT lecture series will be held on Wednesday the 16th of August, in the level 3 lecture theatre of the Design Hub. This lecture will be delivered by Deiter Lim, the Managing Director of Tract Consultants, and a Landscape Architect and Urban Designer with over 20 years of experience.

Over the course of Tract’s 40 year history, and as only its fifth Managing Director, Deiter continues the Tract tradition of outstanding and innovative design leaders with commercial and business acumen to guide the National Practice. Deiter has overseen the integrated environmental, landscape and urban design aspects for projects across a diverse field of typologies including green and brownfield residential development, activity centres, public facilities, campuses, transport and infrastructure corridors, both Nationally and Internationally.  As both a landscape and urban design director, Deiter has a great deal of experience in large scale masterplanning, urban, landscape and infrastructure projects. He has a wealth of experience with a wide range of significant strategic, public and private sector clients. Whilst having strong input into the development of ideas, concepts and designs, Deiter has developed a strong philosophy of collaborative integration of design teams, with client and stakeholder communication and consultation within the project management process.

Deiter, prior to joining Tract in 1996, worked with VicRoads, being involved with the multidisciplinary teams of consultants and engineers on site analysis, masterplanning, design, documentation and administration of landscape works associated with major road and freeway projects. This experience was brought to bear on the many award winning infrastructure projects Deiter has worked on including the Eastern Freeway extension (1998 AILA Award), Princes Freeway - Corio Section (2004 AILA Award), Eastlink (2009, 2010 multiple awards).
