Designing buildings for the Food Industry is second nature to us
We are industry leaders in designing structures for the Food Industry including Hygiene Facilities and Processing Plants for export Dairy, Meat and other Food Production Industries in New Zealand and overseas. We have designed processing facilities for Fonterra, Westland Milk Products, Synlait Milk, Oceania Dairy and Delegat Winery, among others. In these industries, time is even more critical. We understand this; our excellent document processing systems and attention to detail means we have a record of delivering on time.

We believe in Artistic Innovation working hand-in-hand with Science
Our Architects lead the process of creating innovative built spaces in urban and rural environments, where art works hand-in hand with science.

We guide our clients from building concept stage to full realisation, giving advice and leadership along the way, optimising available capital and the building site parameters to help in the success of your building project. We love what we do and we believe it shows.

Design Essence

“We believe that a building should reflect the unique characteristics of its location, function and the identity of the people for whom it is built.”

Whether your project is big or small, we engage with you, our client, to identify your values and overall identity. This helps us to ensure we create an environment that best suits your needs and expectations.

Our team gains great satisfaction in creating buildings of enduring quality that add immense value to the lives of the people that interact with them.

Environmentally Sustainable Design

We encourage our clients to adopt Green Star initiatives into their projects.
