When UTS Professor Shari Forbes wanted to get Australia’s first Body Farm approved, she turned to Urbanac for help. Urbanac understands how to work with local Government, so rather than complicate matters with special approval processes, Urbanac simply put the proposition into plain English, involved the Council early, and worked with a select consultant team to address all the issues upfront. What could have been a hugely controversial project was instead approved in 6 weeks.  (Image by Toby Zerna)
