Melissa Ward brings to your project a diverse range of experience gained over 25 years of experience in the design industry.

Melissa is committed to bringing to her client’s projects superior design and project management with a strong focus on budgetary and environmental aspects. Integral to the project is ensuring that a clear focus on the client’s ideals and vision is always maintained.

Fundamental to good architecture is the incorporation of sustainable design. With an understanding of real current costs of building and the growing cost of energy and resources adherence to sustainable design for now and the future will assist in maintaining the comfort, value and market desirability of your development.

Sustainable design involves creating buildings and following processes that are environmentally responsible and mindful of the use of resources throughout the buildings entire lifecycle. Sustainable design is as relevant to alterations and adaptive reuse of existing buildings as new build projects.

We offer an initial no charge meeting to discuss your project requirements and provide our clients a Project Map to ensure a clear understanding of the design & process from inception to completion.
