Building beautiful places that connect people through thoughtful design

Schools and civic amenities are centrepieces of a neighbourhood and cultural intersections for a community. These shared assets raise the living standard and value of an area for everyone, so the importance of planning and execution cannot be understated.

That includes creating structures that respond sensitively to the site context, including through WSUD (water sensitive urban design), native-plant landscaping and applied CPTED (crime prevention through enviro design) principles.

Construction often needs to occur within a live environment, and our primary concern is safety while striving to avoid disruption wherever possible. We work with schools and community leaders to mediate risks in every way possible. That might mean building modular components off-site, changing delivery/working schedules, or additional security measures such as guards patrolling restricted areas.

What’s more, we strive to make our workplace reflect the highest ideals of the communities in which we work — one that values workplace diversity and social inclusion. If you’re ready to improve the area you live in, we should talk.

Successful projects of this scale are the result of strong partnerships

Our versatile skills, knowledge and experience allow for strategic engagements that improve outcomes for clients, contractors and the community.
