Public buildings provide essential public services. We believe they can also provide inspiration and community pride.

Community recreation centres, pools, civic buildings – these are more than projects to us. They’re opportunities to bring people together to do something extraordinary. How? By managing meaningful community and stakeholder consultations, and working closely with Council, committees, and advisory panels, we find hidden opportunities to go above and beyond. We’ve been doing this a long time. We understand the regulatory and reporting demands, the timelines and the budgets. And we have a track record that proves we can leverage the process, and deliver magnetic spaces with lasting social value.

Their team demonstrated the highest level of commitment, ensuring that the project would be delivered successfully and in accordance with our aggressive project schedule.
