We are delighted to showcase a snapshot of a series of recently completed projects, spanning education (non-government schools), residential, rural, social and community, local government, industrial and commercial land use and development.
Little Saints Early Learning Centre
Design Studio: Drake Design
Working with a sensitive site context within the Latrobe Valley, we secured a most favourable approval for the use and development of an early learning (childcare) in the growing township of Churchill.
Little Saints is an established operator with an exception reputation in the provision of early learning education and quality care. We are excited to see Little Saints in Churchill open its doors in 2024, providing an essential community service to the community of Churchill and beyond.
St. Francis of Assisi
Location: Mill Park
Architect: Co-Op Studio
Successfully enhanced school community infrastructure through the provision of a new STEM building at St. Francis of Assisi school, in consultation with the City of Whittlesea, Melbourne Water, Department of Transport & Planning and the school community.
The site presented an interesting context and consideration was required to matters of offsite amenity impact, protection of significant vegetation and mitigation of potential flood impacts. A terrific outcome was secured for the school and the project team.
Moorumbina Mongurnallin, Village 21
Architect: NH Architecture
Navigated authority consent – amongst Melbourne Water, VicTrack, Department of Transport and Frankston City Council – alongside Kids Under Cover, Department of Families, Fairness & Housing, and the Victorian Aboriginal Child Care Agency. We look forward to seeing this community care accommodation facility come to life on Government land.
Community Care Accommodation
Architect: DDC Group
Project Partners: Purposed Housing & Co-Construct
A fit-for-purpose SDA community care accommodation site, presenting as two dwellings in form. The functionality, however, extends well beyond a typical dwelling. Each building has been designed to a 'robust' level with the ability to discretely, and purposefully, accommodate the individual needs for each resident and their support carers.

Collaborated on the redevelopment of the existing leisure and aquatic centre. Permits were issued by Merri-Bek City Council in less than three months, and no objections were raised by the public.

Planning permits were promptly issued by Frankston City Council, offering the most favourable conditions, allowing this veterinarian clinic to experience a new face-lift and enhanced functionality.

After a securing officer support through a Notice of Decision (NOD) and application for review (Appeal) was lodged with the Tribunal (VCAT) by neighbouring landowner/s. The Tribunal found in favour of the Application and a most favourable permit was issued.
