Our team has worked in partnership for 15 years, delivering successful outcomes for a diverse range of clients and project types, including state government departments, progressive local government authorities, leading tertiary and K-12 learning institutions, elite sporting clubs, and private clients.
We believe that a successful design outcome is achieved by working in partnership with our clients, the project stakeholders, and the consultant team. We commence by investigating the project brief, and by seeking to understand our client’ s objectives and vision for the project. We aim to provide a design outcome that is rich in opportunities and delivers value for the client and end user beyond the functional requirements of the brief.
Our team is committed to delivering projects that positively contribute to the social, economic and environmental sustainability of their local neighbourhoods. Although there are now many internationally accredited tools for measuring environmentally sustainability design, we approach all of our projects with first principles design and a commitment to satisfying all three pillars of Sustainability: Environmental, Economic and Social as equal pursuits.
Canvas was established from a desire to deliver great outcomes for everyone. We love what we do and believe that a positive experience results in a positive outcome.
