We place our customers’ needs at the centre of our end-to-end service management and delivery - from design and build through to maintenance. Our solutions include sustainable design solutions that are future proofed. We combine our multiple service capabilities to look after each lifecycle stage of our customer’s building assets (from design to maintenance). In doing so, we foster longevity of the assets through continuous and consistent monitoring, and reduce the total cost of capital investment. This approach also enables streamlined operations, reduced risk, and the application of sustainable energy-efficient, and cost saving solutions. In short, we will supply, install, support, and upgrade your facility’s asset needs.
We maintain a comprehensive in-house design capability with our dedicated electrical and mechanical engineers who support the design and documentation of projects.
Designs can include complete sets of drawings with full technical specifications using the latest CAD technology or, alternatively, augmenting and providing value engineering to our clients’ own designers. Our capability includes the full spectrum of electrical and mechanical design including:
Our single, integrated engineering capability adds considerable value for our clients by avoiding the complications of multiple parties and touch points. A full project team working directly with clients is the shortest route to a more effective outcome.

Our team of technical advisors and technicians will work closely with you to design, construct and manage all elements of project development and implementation. They will use in-house design modelling to explore the best options and solutions available to meet your requirements.
