PHASE3 Landscape Construction
While many of his peers at the University of Western Australia pursued positions at established firms after graduating in 2000, Matt Huxtable took his degree in landscape architecture and launched a new business. Driven by a passion for design and a desire to make a lasting contribution to the profession in WA, Mr Huxtable co-founded Newforms Landscape Architecture in 2000, before co-establishing his second venture, PHASE3 Landscape Construction, in 2007. Both businesses have grown to become award-winning practices, with more than 20 accolades between them including overall industry winners in design and construction. Phase3 now employs more than 50 staff and engages over 100 sub-contractors. Mr Huxtable’s commitment to giving back to the local industry is reflected in his involvement in a number of professional bodies and associations, including a four-year stint as the state president of the Australian Institute of Landscape Architecture.
