About Us:

Listening, understanding and getting the job done

The capabilities we can provide include building and architectural design, all engineering disciplines, town planning and permit management.

Our approach is to work in partnership with you, ideally from the earliest days of your project, and put together a service package that meets your specific needs.

We place great importance on gaining a full understanding of your needs, so we can apply our experience to address potential issues and identify opportunities for a better outcome.

Engineering:

Our services include all the engineering disciplines:

  • Structural
  • Civil
  • Mechanical
  • Electrical
  • Hydraulic

These can be provided by us as part of a complete design and engineering package or, if the design process is treated separately, as a consultancy service to other architects or designers.

A major advantage of managing all the engineering services under one roof is that cross-discipline errors can be eliminated, avoiding time delays and cost overruns.

Our experience with both architectural design and building construction also means we can come up with smart engineering solutions and deliver real differences that matter.

Design:

In developing a design solution for your project we consider not only the aesthetic imperative but, through experience, take into account all the engineering and permit aspects.

This means the design can have visual appeal while offering certainty of functionality, buildability and durability.

Going into the construction phase with a soundly based design means that variations and discrepancies can be minimised, with the benefit of further time and cost savings.

Planning and permit management:

Management of the planning and permit process is often complex and can be pivotal to the efficient workflow of a project.

We understand the pathways through the sectors we work in, and have great experience dealing with planners, building surveyors and the various official bodies and authorities.

By being involved early on, we can help avoid issues that may result in changes or delays, and then take care of the approvals and permits required to get the project over the line.
