Marc Beattie

Associate - Heritage

Marc is a highly knowledgeable and experienced heritage professional who is also a personable communicator and engaging presenter. He is a keen collaborator having worked on many large multidisciplinary project teams to deliver award winning heritage projects. His proven ability to investigate the full spectrum of the history and heritage value of a historic place allows its full potential to be unlocked in exciting adaptive re-use and revitalisation.

Having worked on some of Western Australia’s most significant heritage projects – such as the adaptive re- use of Swanbourne Hospital (Montgomery House by Aegis), Sunset Hospital in Dalkeith, The Guildford Historic Town Policy and Hillcrest North Fremantle – he specialises in emphasising inherent character of the original in a new use. At any time, Marc’s work profile could include preparing conservation management plans, specifying schedules of work, informing feasibility and condition surveys, underpinned by his practical knowledge of conservation techniques.

Marc cites his work on the award-winning Guildford Hotel revitalisation as particularly rewarding, uncovering local stories about the building, advising on the reconstruction process and ultimately seeing the building rise from the ashes as a popular food and beverage venue. Hard to escape his Scottish roots, he sees the Edinburgh World Heritage Site being one of the world’s most inspiring urban evolutions, blending contemporary architecture with ancient streets and lanes.
