Ashley Sheppard

The Buchan Group is delighted to announce the promotion of Ashley Sheppard to Principal, cementing the firm’s ongoing commitment to investing in outstanding future leadership.

With a career at Buchan spanning 10 years, Ashley has been pivotal in some of the firm’s most defining retail projects across Australia and the U.K.

As a lead designer on Emporium Melbourne, Ashley made a significant contribution to one of the most phenomenal retail developments in the Melbourne CBD. The uniquely urban shopping destination forms the middle link in the pedestrian chain of Australia’s most powerful CBD retail precinct, linking Myer, David Jones, Melbourne Central, The Strand Arcade and Melbourne’s GPO.

The project recently took out the Sir Osborn McCutcheon Award in Commercial Architecture in the 2016 Victorian Architecture Awards and was shortlisted for the 2015 Interior Design Excellence Awards in the Public Space category.

Ashley was instrumental in the design of the recently completed urban lifestyle precinct, Eastland, in Melbourne’s East, and was an integral member of the team for the award winning Westfield London and Westfield Stratford City projects in the U.K.

His most recent venture, the Castle Towers redevelopment in Sydney, is set to reimagine retail when it opens in 2020. The Centre will increase in size by 80,000m2, transforming it into one of Australia’s most prominent urban shopping, entertainment and leisure hubs.

Congratulating Ashley on his appointment, Buchan CEO David Martin said the promotion recognises Ashley’s professional accomplishments and contribution to Buchan’s success, as well as reinforcing the firm’s commitment to developing future leaders.

“Ashley is not only an exceptional designer, but a fantastic collaborator with a commitment to building lasting relationships with our valued clients.

“This promotion is an opportunity to recognise Ashley for his talent and dedication.”

With 125 years of design excellence, The Buchan Group has a vast global reach extending across offices in the United Kingdom, China, the Middle East, Australia and New Zealand. With almost 400 professionals, the firm is recognised for its design excellence and depth of experience in retail, residential, hotels, mixed use, leisure and commercial developments.

The Group’s projects include: Wuhan 1818 (Wuhan, China), Sheraton Melbourne (Australia), Emporium Melbourne (Australia), Cloisters on Hay (Perth, Australia), Christchurch Art Gallery (New Zealand), Westfield London and Westfield Stratford City (United Kingdom), Chadstone Shopping Centre (Melbourne, Australia), DiverCity Tokyo Plaza (Japan), The Emerald (Melbourne, Australia) and Raffles City Chengdu (Chengdu, China).
