Custom Design & Construction

 

Design 

To start your project we first have to understand your needs. We then can begin your project’s theme and story development. Every great project tells a story and the first step is often to craft your project’s narrative. Every element of your project’s design, down to the smallest detail needs to relate back to this story.

From here we will begin concept design for your project's architecture, features, landscaping, signage, branding, and even mascots. This visual development can consist of artist conceptions, sketches, full colour illustrations, and study models.

We will pay particular attention in order to ensure that:

  • your entrances generate a sense of arrival and excitement
  • your iconic centrepieces demand to be photographed
  • your signage is particularly memorable

We are well known in the sign industry worldwide and have won scores of international awards. We define a sign as anything that draws attention to your product, service, or business in a spectacular fashion – this leaves ample room for imagination.

We believe that all the good work in the world will not hide a bad design, but a great design is the foundation for spectacular work. We can provide this critical design foundation for you.


Master Planning

We are experts in building small to medium sized projects. We know that land is valuable and we strive to create master plans that maximizes land use without feeling overcrowded.

We believe that as guests enter your facility they should know that they have entered a special place. Similarly, waiting should be an entertaining experience rather than a chore. We plan for crowd management and traffic flow while anticipating future expansion.

We will ensure that every aspect of your project is carefully considered and planned with an eye towards your guest’s experience.


Consulting

We have decades of experience building what we design. Benefit from our proven capability of building to a world-class visual standard. Don't just make your project beautiful - make it work.

We welcome collaboration and will work closely with your existing team. If needed, we can also assemble a team of specialists for your project.

We provide guidance in developing master timelines and preparing site logistics. Our projects are not ordinary, as a result, we are often called on to provide “concept engineering.” If your engineer needs to know how to design an unusual structure we have the experience to help them through the process. We also offer guidance for architects in the form of detailed drawings and construction models. In concert with your landscaper, we will ensure the flora tell the same story as the theming.

Choose us to integrate the themed elements seamlessly with the rest of your project.


Construction

Whether your project involves new construction, an addition, or renovation our team of skilled artists and expert craftsmen will get the job done. Experience has taught us to use a combination of offsite fabrication and onsite installation to ensure that our projects will:

  • be of world-class quality
  • proceed in a timely manner
  • stay on budget

We are very proud of our forty year legacy building themed projects and our goal is to raise the bar with each project we complete.
