Industrial and Transport

We develop intelligent solutions for our clients through a whole-of-life de­sign process.

We have notable experience and expertise in planning and designing spaces where people assemble and move in large numbers and areas which have security requirements. Our experience includes Airports, Marine precincts, Stations and Depots and industral buildings.  We collaborate with our clients to undertake detailed planning to create spaces and systems that can provide desired commer­cial outcomes while allowing uncongested and secure movement of people within urban and outer urban locals.
