Guided by a design philosophy that responds to the architectural intent of a development, we help our clients enrich the built environment through projects that preserve the cultural and heritage history of buildings and connect communities with vital social infrastructure.
We proudly stand with the Architectural Institute of Architects (AIA) and its commitment to positively shape our future societies, and in recognising the innovative work that the design community provides for the built environment.
Following the recent Victorian Chapter Awards, we congratulate the winners and are honoured to have supported design excellence in the following projects:
MONASH UNIVERSITY, SABLE DROP TERRACE
Architect: Jackson Clements Burrows Architects
Awards won: Award for Urban Design
The new Sable Drop Terrace forms part of Monash University’s public realm improvement works at its Caulfield campus, which has enhanced pedestrian connectivity by linking and activating the new social spaces on the campus.
Our team undertook a major relocation of the building services to clear the services away from the amphitheatre environment, created by the new landscaped spaces, while visually, we engineered an exposed, fabricated steel-framed glazed canopy, cantilevering at 4m.

NIGHTINGALE 2.0 – FAIRFIELD
Architect: Six Degrees Architects
Awards won: Commendation for Sustainable Architecture
The Nightingale housing model provides quality urban housing based on a triple bottom line outcome, delivering environmentally, socially and financially sustainable apartments for the community. Driven by rigorous environmentally sustainable design objectives, a key design feature of the second Nightingale development was creating a visual connection for occupants, and with the adjacent train station.
Throughout our ongoing involvement with Nightingale housing developments, we continue to look for sustainable structural options in timber and prefabricated construction.
