The Difference

Why do we have so many repeat Clients? Because we offer the Ashburner Francis Difference.

Our projects include integrated and focused involvement throughout the life of the project.
We offer Integrated Sustainable Design (ISD) at the early stages of the project. ISD identifies opportunities to reduce the capital construction costs, lower ongoing utility and transport operating costs, whilst significantly reducing the impact on the environment.

During the Design Phase of a project, we carry out a detailed assessment of specific project requirements to ensure that the end product reflects the client’s needs and expectations, and we strive to achieve a level of detail in our design documents that exceeds industry standards. Our Professional Engineers are fully qualified and documents are checked and certified for compliance with Building Codes, Australian Standards and safety regulations as required.

Our team of knowledgeable Technical Officers are heavily involved during the Construction Phase providing trustworthy solutions for the project.

When the project is completed our Maintenance Division focuses on providing ongoing maintenance management for the facilities, including cost monitoring.

This ongoing regular interaction with the Contractor gives us an excellent understanding of build-ability issues. This knowledge allows us to design more buildable projects.

Builders, Architects and Clients come back to Ashburner Francis for reliable quality, buildable designs, and a genuine focus on building long-term relationships. We always strive for excellence in every action taken.
We want every project to be successful for all parties, and work hard to maintain our reputation within the industry.
