Secondary Consultants

Each building requires professional input from specialist consultants. From the ground up we need to work with Geo-technical, Civil, Structural, Electrical, and Mechanical engineers, as well as planning consultants, Surveyors, Landscape Architects, Interior Designers and cost consultants.

Over the years our practice has developed and maintained good working relationships with a full range of qualified and capable secondary consultants throughout the region. Our ability to quickly identify appropritate architectural solutions has been acknowledged by the willingness of other consultants to work on our projects, the competitiveness of their fees and the promptness of their responses.

The resulting quick turn around, from design stage to construction, benefits all involved and especially the project developer.

Local Authorities

The practice has maintained good working relationships with all local authorities and this is evidenced by the range of civic projects that have been awarded to us, throughout the Whitsunday Shire, Bowen and Mackay.
