Future built environment

Our future built environment team is working to meet the needs of our communities for generations to come, designing new memorial landscapes and cemeteries to last in perpetuity.

The art of cemetery design

Cemetery design addresses ecological and socio-cultural sustainability, health and wellbeing through the art and science of the built environment. Through intelligent and informed place design, GMCT creates a range of experiences to support the various stages of grief. Our team’s reflective and creative concepts weave together the natural landscape, heritage considerations, flora and fauna, infrastructure, roads and the layout of memorials.

Our future cemetery site at Harkness, near Melton, is located in one of Melbourne’s growth areas. We envision a peaceful sanctuary encompassing community parkland that makes a significant contribution to the future of integrated open-space planning.
