Where We Service

The Ashburner Francis 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.

During the Design Phase of a project, we carry out a detailed assessment of specific project requirements to ensure that the end result reflects the client’s needs and expectations, and we strive to achieve a level of detail in our design documents that exceeds industry standards. We identify opportunities to reduce capital costs, lower ongoing utility and operating costs, whilst reducing impact on the environment.

Our Professional Engineers are fully qualified, and our management systems ensure that documents are checked for compliance with Client requirements, Building Codes, Australian Standards, and safety regulations as required.

Our team takes pride in our willingness to be involved during the Construction Phase, providing ongoing support through to completion.

When the project is completed, our Facility Maintenance team can focus on providing ongoing maintenance management for the project, including cost and quality monitoring.

Our ongoing regular interaction with contractors gives us an excellent understanding of build-ability issues, which allows us to design more buildable projects.

Builders, Architects and Clients come back to Ashburner Francis for reliable, high quality, buildable designs, and a genuine focus on building long-term relationships. We strive for excellence in everything we do.

We want every project to be successful for all parties, and work hard to maintain our reputation within the industry.
