Design

Design is our passion. We love it, we live it we breathe it. Good design takes skill, focus and a rigorous examination of the intent and the intended result. It may be a house, or a skyscraper, the same methodology applies. 

As a service to you, the client, good design has immense power to add value to your project. That said, it doesn't have to mean that the price of your project goes up because it is designed well. 

 

We take a holistic approach to the design of buildings using efficiencies of structure, seeing this as an effective and good method of design

Prefabrication 

Our expertise is in the advanced manufacture of prefabricated housing. Fraser is completing a PhD in engineering, at the ARC Centre for Advanced Manufacture of Prefabricated Housing at Melbourne University. This, and having travelled extensively through Sweden and Japan to examine advanced methods of manufacturing buildings, allows for a greater understanding of how to design a building for manufacture. His research into building manufacture processes, combined with extensive experience in architecture and design, allows for a potent mix of making buildings better, and faster.

Having in-depth knowledge of the building manufacture process can save time and cost, while will allowing the creative flexibility of the architecture. Prefabricated architecture is not limited in form, or built outcome when the methods of manufacture are well understood and catered for in the design. This knowledge of prefabrication techniques can allow significant cost and time savings on site. Witnessing buildings being assembled on site to completion in a single day in Sweden and Japan was a strong driver for this focus. Coupled to that is the high levels of design detailed to create buildings of architectural excellence.
