Podcast - Episode 49: Lucent's Sophie Whittakers

This week I sit down with Lucent Development Manager Sophie Whittakers. This follows on from Urban.com.au being invited on a site tour of Lt. Miller & Nightingale last month, which Sophie was kind enough to facilitate. 

Sophie and I chat about a range of topics including:

  • How Sophie and her team went in the Oxfam 100km Trek
  • Sophie's professional background from studying interior design to working abroad at an architecture firm to studying construction management and;
  • Sophie also provides a bit of background on how she found herself working at Lucent and its history
  • Has planning become a bit of a box ticking exercise in Victoria
  • Are planning outcomes clearly communicated in the planning scheme
  • We touch on Lucent's next project - The Stewart Collective and;
  • I also ask Sophie which projects (if any) she admires or would have liked to have worked on.

Listen below for the full interview.
