At Fender Katsalidis Architects, they listen, think, investigate and collaborate. They seek the simple, compelling solution. Their process through feasibility, design and documentation, enhanced by 3-D ‘information rich’ virtual building environments, is acclaimed by their clients and the international design community.

The practice is renowned for producing buildings which are cutting edge in design with sound functional planning. Their approach has generated a high practice profile and gained many design awards.

The approach, pioneered by Fender Katsalidis, is changing the face of construction practices. Increasingly, the specific design of large components of a building can be undertaken by major subcontractors using 3D computer-based design harnessed to manufacturing processes, which in turn provides construction streamlining.
