Creating environments where people want to live, stay and play!

With the shift in how we live and where we live and the uncertainties surrounding domestic and international travel, we work with clients to create, innovate, and discover new ways to deliver and future-proof high-performing, efficient buildings with the flexibility to adapt. Embracing consumer demands for better quality and connected amenities, ‘living’ developments are being reimagined into lifestyle end-destinations. 

Whether your development is a residential tower or luxury hotel, student accommodation, senior retirement living, a Build-to-Rent or affordable housing, our team of visionary engineers, consultants and designers focus on placemaking, social engagement and people-centred design to deliver above and beyond our clients’ expectations. 

ADP can provide you with crucial insights into engineering innovations to deliver a top-grade development leveraging the latest technologies and the best in practice design principles. In addition, we will provide project-specific advice relating to building efficiencies and infrastructure with reduced life-cycle utility costs along with highly desirable, flexible spaces to attract future residents or guests.

The shopping centre is experiencing an evolution in design. It is being transformed into an end destination where customers are experiencing contemporary spaces to relax and socialise, shop and play, and work, live, and learn. With onsite access to hotels, coworking spaces, high-standard residential areas, business schools and universities, theatres and even rooftop farms, retail destinations are becoming the beating hearts of our communities.     Whether your project is a standalone store or a new shopping mall, a supermarket chain, large format retail or an entire retail-led town centre, our team understands the technical complexities of retail and will provide sustainability strategies and cost-effective energy efficiency solutions.

Innovators In


With an increasing population, decreasing land availability and housing prices shooting through the roof, developers, architects, and engineers have had to raise the bar to meet market demands and buyers’ expectations. With a growing trend in vertical villages, developers are pushing the envelope to provide more exclusive and better-quality amenities to attract future buyers and tenants.

Our team collaborates with our partners to develop innovative and clever design solutions to maximise floor plate efficiency and provide high quality, sustainable, and cost-effective building design.

With a rise in tenant demand to live closer to jobs and services, the Build-to-Rent (BTR) model offers those unable to afford a home an attractive and attainable option for housing in their preferred location.  With a targeted demographic of millennials and downsizers with high expectations, our team will deliver excellent design and sustainable and energy-efficient buildings to support quality amenities that encourage social networking and connectivity.

Hotels & Resorts

From a building design and services perspective, hotels are a unique asset as they run 24/7 and can require similar resilience to a hospital – to ensure guests are not impacted by unexpected events. Therefore, sustainability and cost-effective energy efficiency solutions are crucial in design considerations while still providing guests with great comfort and indoor air quality.

Another critical factor is the use of technology to provide a seamless, intuitive guest experience. From pre-check-in to check-out, guests can curate their stay through the touch of a button on their mobile phone – whether it is a preferred room temperature, wake up call, booking hotel amenities or requesting an extra personal touch. Many of the ‘typical’ services design strategies have evolved since Covid-19. Our team has been actively involved in developing these solutions to improve the safety of both guests and staff.

Senior Retirement Living

Over the last decade, we have seen a shift in the Senior Living sector. Today’s affluent baby boomers demand higher quality living spaces and access to hotel style amenity and services, with the backup of care provision.

Central to many Senior Living developments is the emphasis on providing quality amenity and common areas to actively promote a strong sense of place and community that is more connected and socialised. Our team are passionate about designing developments which actively improve quality of life, be it creating control systems that provide occupants full control over temperature, lighting and ensuring indoor air quality throughout.

Easy access to technology has become key, with Covid-19 highlighting the real need for great internet access to people can stay in touch with loved ones remotely as well as easy connection to staff off-site.

Student Accommodation

Pre-Covid-19, Australia was the third most popular global destination for international students studying abroad. Considered a growing property investment sector, the inclusion of student housing in mixed-use developments is an increasing trend. Some view it as fundamental to activating areas and providing social diversity to communities.

Right now, access to the latest technology is critical for millennials. Our team will provide your building with the services and communications infrastructure to enable students to easily connect to smart-building features, making every part of student living easy, safe, and seamless. For owners, low maintenance and ease of serviceability are imperative, and we can provide clever and efficient building services design, with quality services to allow for future-proofing and to maintain life cycle costs.

Affordable Housing

With the cost of living increasing, affordable multifamily housing is reaching crisis level. For the people who are the heart and soul of our communities, such as our essential workers, housing needs to be made available that that is both close to work and affordable. Access to good quality, affordable housing is fundamental to enhancing equality of opportunity and people’s wellbeing.

Our team provide, simple, logical, and cost-effective solutions in services design allowing ease of maintenance and reducing long term costs.

Delivering intelligent and connected buildings

As the world accelerates towards a digital future, building owners need to ensure they have resilient infrastructure in place and their building assets are future-ready, with the flexibility and capacity to adapt to new and advancing technologies. There are many building systems which currently exist, requiring a robust backbone to service it, and there are more devices requiring such connectivity being invented every day.  Given many of our significant buildings may never be demolished, we need to consider not just the next 5-10 years, but the next 50.  Ensuring that our buildings are suitably considered for the technology of the future is a key responsibility for developers and engineers alike.
