United Nation figures show that, by 2030, 60 per cent of the global population is expected to live in urban areas, compared with only 47 per cent in 2000. Such dramatic growth in urbanisation has shifted the market’s focus towards improving the efficiency, sustainability and cost effectiveness of both new residential property development and existing buildings.
As land becomes scarcer, innovative, high quality design is the key to creating high performance, aesthetically pleasing, yet cost effective and functional residential buildings. In this highly competitive area, our clients are looking for a real point of difference that makes their product successful over their competitors. Aurecon understands how to find the balance between form, function and financial viability in residential building projects for our clients. We have a track record of delivering hugely successful projects for our clients. In addition to traditional residential housing developments, the group has extensive experience in mixed use developments, incorporating leisure, retail and commercial developments, which are increasingly part of today’s residential landscape. We also have an extensive global track record partnering with both the public and private sectors in the development of affordable housing.
Our technical expertise covers all facets of residential property development, from master planning and design in building services, structural and civil, and facade engineering, through to wind, fire and acoustic engineering, to construction management and supervision. We utilise advanced modelling technology to resolve complex planning and design issues, providing clients with significant cost and time savings over the duration of the project construction and operation.
We have the expertise to deliver world-class building engineering solutions with leading sustainability principles. Smart design and technologies minimise energy requirements through material selection, use of lighting, ventilation, building orientation, façade design and operational aspects such as temperature control, waste reduction and recycling. We use powerful environmental modelling software to measure and help optimise the performance and create comfortable and healthy living environments.
