Enabling architectural ambition

We are the technical documentation and services firm preferred by Australasia’s most exacting architects and engineers.

From offices in Auckland and Sydney we deliver modelling & documentation for building design and structure, BIM management, and professional services.

We exist to enable architectural ambition. And we make it happen by focussing on one thing: clarity.

Clarity of thinking, systems, and processes. Clarity that gives clients the confidence to realise their architectural ambitions.

Because clarity is more than just documents and drawings

Architectural

Assemble’s deep knowledge of construction and building methods bring superior clarity to design management, architectural design, and drawing documentation.

Structural

Our structural team applies current and evolving technologies, taking your data, concepts, and sketches to deliver precise final drawings, including 3D modelling, detailing and construction documentation.

BIM management

From the big picture to the tiny details, our managers and technical team collate information from different disciplines to create detailed, spatially-coordinated models for superior building performance and outcomes.

Everything we do is about better outcomes – for both our clients and for their clients

The lion’s share of our work is building projects valued $2m to $500m. Commercial and industrial buildings, multi-unit residential and high-rise apartments, and large architecturally designed homes.

Clients expect discretion, so we don’t say much here. But we’re happy to show-and-tell behind closed doors.

Enabling architectural ambition.
It’s why we exist.

In 2004 Assemble principals Steve Davis and Andrew Dickinson founded the company on the belief that documentation is more than just doing the drawings. In their minds, documentation is only ever about one thing – delivering better outcomes.

So they recruited architects and technicians with a similar ethos, supporting them with smart systems and best-practice frameworks to help architects and engineers do their best work.

Clients loved it, because Assemble’s focus gave them the confidence to achieve their architectural ambitions.

Today, Assemble is a team of 30 passionate individuals behind the architects, engineers and developers responsible for some of Australasia’s most beautiful buildings.

Confidence from clarity

Clarity starts with better questions.

Asking hard questions upfront beats a soft document completed on time.

Clarity has no ego.

We serve great architecture – not our own egos.

Clarity embraces chaos.

We love problem solving, unorthodox thinking, and the fun side of finding nuggets in the chaos.

Clarity is good honest work.

We love the process of refinement and the beauty it lends to remarkable architecture.

Let’s make it happen
