Aligned with an organisational focus on sustainability, ARKit offers a range of consultancy and construction options to suit varying requirements and to foster Ecologically Sustainable Development. In addition to having a lower carbon footprint, buildings that embody ESD principles have superior thermal comfort and reduced running costs, making them a highly desirable outcome. These options are available for both residential and commercial projects.
We carefully assess and individually approach the design process for each project. We collaborate with our clients to discover their requirements, analyse the site and develop an optimum design response to the project. Our prefabricated building systems have been developed to allow us to explore endless design possibilities in the delivery of both residential and commercial projects
