We are committed to design excellence and creative innovation. By employing a highly participatory and collaborative design process, we are informed by in-house experts, consultants and other professionals with a variety of points of view. Our team of talented professionals is recognized for our award-winning integrated designs for healthcare, science + technology, government, academic and private-sector organizations.
We believe architecture can enrich our day-to-day experiences and elevate our perceptions of a person, an organization or a community. We strive for architecture that enhances an organization's function and expresses its vision by embracing human behavior within its contextual social structure; enriching the ways in which people work, live and play and establishing an appropriate image consistent with the organization's values. Through a highly participatory and respectful design process, we create architecture that is both proud and humble, stays true to its purpose, and creates a sense of place that is meaningful to the society it serves.
We offer a full range of engineering design services, including mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and structural design. From concept through delivery, we ensure seamless integration of engineering systems to support and enhance architectural designs with energy-efficient and cost-effective building systems.
Solutions Among the first to adopt sustainable design principles, we fully embrace our responsibility as environmental stewards. We challenge conventional wisdom and re-think sustainability by exploring alternatives—and by making well-informed choices. Our goal is to conserve resources and improve the environment—leaving it a better place for generations to come.
Our technology solutions group includes multidisciplinary professionals who evaluate a multitude of new building technologies. Our group is dedicated to incorporating the best of these technologies into the built environment and to providing the flexibility needed to adapt to inevitable changes. Ultimately, we look for ways that technologies can enhance the human experience.
Wayfinding Planning and Design
We enhance architecture, interior and site design through branding, graphics, signage and technology to create clear and cohesive environments. Our wayfinding and environmental design professionals develop strategies that help orient people and simplify navigation in complex facilities.
As a new generation comes of age, interior design is evolving in response to changes in culture, organization and technology. Our experienced interior designers promote a balance between innovative, technology-equipped, dynamic environments—and sustainable, humanistic and comfortable spaces.
We ensure architectural space programming and design is responsive to the functional needs and operational models of civic projects. Our expertise ranges from basic operational planning and transition assistance to analyzing and clarifying strategic policy issues and system-wide planning considerations.
Our commissioning professionals are expert in the operations of complex facilities and the challenges of fine-tuning integrated systems. We develop and implement commissioning plans that sustain smooth transitions between design, construction, warranty and continued operations. We have also created a web-based commissioning and balancing data management system, which captures all commissioning activities in real time.
The future of every industry depends on adapting to remain relevant. Our innovation consultants help clients do exactly that. We balance analytic and intuitive thinking to help organizations across all industry types imagine the future and explore innovative ways to shape it. Our proprietary innovation tool, SYNAPSE, combines the disciplines of design thinking and strategy to examine complex problems and explore traditional constraints using non-traditional thinking. We use this tool to leverage what we already know and discover new ways of thinking and doing that can assist organizations with leap-frogging the competition.
Successful lighting reinforces architectural design—creating visual impact, improving performance, supporting visual comfort and engaging the occupants. Our innovative lighting design professionals balance aesthetic design and engineering to create attractive, fully integrated and sustainable lighting systems for all building types and environments.
We provide owners and operators of existing and planned critical infrastructure sites with important facility and system assessments to identify appropriate physical and electronic security technologies; assuring that an effective security strategy is employed at each stage of a project.
EPCS has been delivering sustainable, high-performance engineering and construction services for over decades. Our multi-disciplined network of professional engineers can design, contract and supervise engineering projects in the public and private sectors globally.
Faced with unprecedented economic, social and technological change governments and organisations are challenging the construction industry to deliver higher quality, smarter solutions, faster and more cost-effectively.
We have considerable knowledge and experience in meeting the multi-faceted business needs of our clients across major sectors covering residential, commercial, mixed-use, schools, hospitals, water, transport, oil & gas, mining and materials handling, and power.
Engineering Excellence Group
At the heart of our approach is the unique Engineering Excellence Group, an in-house advisory body providing research, innovation, expertise, advice and direction to clients. The group is responsible for driving our Design for Manufacture and Assembly (DfMA) agenda, collaborating with global technology, supply chain and education partners to meet clients’ needs.
The team includes original thinkers in civil, structural, mechanical, electrical, process and materials engineering. They design new systems and approaches that build greater energy efficiency, durability, affordability and usability into the structures we deliver. They are experienced in working alongside client-side architectural and design consultants to better manage the risks and opportunities to create transformational outcomes that are beyond the reaches of other contractors.
Our civil and structural engineering services range from feasibility and buildability studies, alternative design specifications based on the wider application of offsite and modular solutions, through to site-based engineering project management, quality assurance testing and system commissioning and maintenance.
Mechanical and electrical engineering is an integral element of EPCS’s offering. We enable clients to control and optimise the performance of their facilities, making them more commercially and environmentally sustainable. Our engineers understand the ever changing technical landscape and can create the most practical and efficient solutions.
Our specific skill sets in civil, structural, materials, mechanical, electrical, chemical and process engineering span the full project lifecycle, from concept feasibility and design services to contract preparation, engineering management, commissioning, operational upgrades and complex decommissioning.
We can help clients with:
- Design management
- Professional services coordination
- Constructability analysis
- Energy strategies
- Total cost of ownership analysis
- Building Information Modelling – Symmetry2020
- Offsite and modular product development
