Transport Dreaming 2019

The National Aboriginal and Torres Straight Islander Corporation (NATSIC) is holding their second ‘Transport Dreaming’ conference.

The conference aims to provide an enabling platform for open dialogue to explore and define Indigenous specific transport options and innovations in remote, regional and urban locations. This will be achieved through promoting a strong focus on innovative transport solutions across areas that have significant impacts on the health, well-being, cultural obligations and social inclusion of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and communities across Australia. The conference content will also target transport related issues focusing on strengthening and increasing equity and access to My Aged Care and the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).

Register now to secure your place at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre in May 2019 and enjoy innovative and thought-provoking presentations from industry leaders, emerging leaders, providers and influential decision making bodies from across Australia.

BE Collective & DBALP

BE Collective’s MD, John Tuxworth recently caught up with ‘Starchitect’ Duangrit Bannag, at Duangrit’s Bangkok restaurant, The Never Ending Summer. The pair only had a short time together to discuss multi-disciplinary design (a mutual passion), and current project works.

Kuhn Duangrit is busy. Very busy. His practice, Duangrit Bannag Architect Limited (DBALP) is located at the Jam Factory, Duangrit’s own development. Situated on the south bank of the Chao Phraya River, the previous industrial site now houses Duangrit’s restaurant, coffee shop, book shop homewares store – Any Room, and hosts a variety of events in the beautiful courtyard and boardwalk areas. Since John’s last visit in 2016, Duangrit has opened a 2nd restaurant on the site, The Summer House Projectand in 2018 his DBALP Consortium won the design for the new THB35 billion (AUD 1.5 billion) terminal at Bangkok’s international airport.

Duangrit is an inspiration, and John is looking forward to catching up again when the pair have a little more time.

Meet our new Office Dog!

We’ve a furry new colleague – meet Chihiro!

Chihiro is not our first office doggo – she joins Mollie and Millie, the Frenchies who inspired BEC’s ‘Two Dogs Bathtub Gin’ and regularly star in our office Christmas cards.

Recently Macy the Golden retriever and Chihiro (pictured relaxing on a messenger bag) have started dropping in from time to time.

We’re strong believers in the benefits of office dogs, they relieve stress, boost the office mood and one study even showed they increase trust and team cohesion.
