Architectus appoints two new Principals

We’re absolutely delighted to announce two promotions to Principals: Nigel Justins and Mena Kubba will advance the Architectus leadership team in our Melbourne and Sydney studios.

Mena Kubba has been promoted to Principal in the Melbourne Studio, after driving success and innovation across Transport projects in just over a year at Architectus. 

A skilled strategic and conceptual thinker, Mena’s experience has primarily focused on transport infrastructure projects, most recently working on the Suburban Rail Loop with Architectus as part of the AJM consortium. Before joining us, Mena grew an impressive portfolio of senior roles in transport infrastructure projects, primarily through her work with Melbourne Metro working as a collaborative leader during the design and delivery of the five new Melbourne stations.  

Her focus on delivering high quality, functional design outcomes is reflected in a portfolio that encompasses several winning and shortlisted architectural design competition entries in Australia, the UK and South Africa.    

Nigel Justins and Mena Kubba Architectus Principals

Nigel Justins has been promoted to Principal in the Sydney Studio, helping to grow the Transport sector through his deep expertise acquired from more than 25 years’ professional experience.  

After seven years at Architectus, he has become a widely recognised leader in the transport infrastructure sector, combining his highly regarded design, technical and leadership skills.  

Nigel has worked extensively with government, design consultants and contractors on light and heavy rail projects throughout Australia, including metro systems, interchanges, new and upgraded stations, traction substations, stabling and maintenance facilities, depots and multi-storey car parks. His latest projects include Brookfield Place, Valley Metro, Northern Beaches Bus Rapid Transit, New Intercity Fleet Maintenance Facility and Central Precinct Renewal Project  

Architectus CEO, Ray Brown said “We’re is starting the year strongly with a diverse and talented cohort of promotions and new appointments. As our cities grow, we’re focused on enhancing our team across all sectors and geographies to continue to deliver city-changing projects throughout the nation.  

“We are especially proud of new Principals, Mena and Nigel, who are both highly regarded by clients and team members for their commitment to exceptional outcomes and demonstrated leadership skills.” 

Congratulations Mena and Nigel
