Amongst others Simon delivered the Sorrento Quay Boardwalk Breakwater, Retail and Bascule Bridge project at Hillarys Boat Harbour [$17M | Cox | 2008]. This urban scale project involved complex construction over water, a Dutch style bascule bridge which was the only one like it in Australia at the time and co-ordination of a large consultant as well as stakeholder group. This project was recognised with a number of awards from the Australian Institute of Architects and Property Council of Australia. Simon registered with the Architects Board of Western Australia in 2008 and completed a government funded Master of Architecture by research in the Urban Architecture Laboratory at RMIT University in 2011. This research developed practical strategies to encourage shared community use of public space. He also completed the masterplanning of the Perth Stadium Matagarup Pedestrian Footbridge [$75M | JCY | 2012]. Many of the basic design principles as well as the overall form of the bridge established in this stage of work were retained in the final outcome.
