James Seymour Architecture (JSA) was established in response to the need to provide local architectural design and project management services for regional clients.
Our architectural experience and knowledge enhances and benefits the projects we undertake. We understand that our clients decision to commission architectural services is an investment to ensure the success of the project.
We are collaborative and allow all stakeholders to be engaged in each stage of the project process to add value and to achieve goals.
Successful project outcomes result from our ability to engage with our clients, and to understand their needs and project aspirations. This understanding provides the knowledge that will drive the design solution, order and make sense of the spatial configuration and provide consistent and appropriate detailing and material selection. The idea will make sense of the building form and define its place in the street, community and environment.
We believe that the application of professional design to any project, no matter the size, adds value to that project and will significantly benefit the client, users and stakeholders in regard to function, quality and meeting cost control targets.
JSA provide services in all key areas of the building procurement process from design and documentation services, through to contract administration and project management services.
“We used James to help us preserve the historical value of the building but coming up with clever design solution that made it into a very modern health facility”
Each project presents a different set of opportunities and constraints that determine the approach to Environmentally Sustainable Design (ESD) for the project. James Seymour Architecture (JSA) seeks to implement ESD principles to all projects by providing a considered and professional approach to the project design. Constraints, such as budget restrictions, require a clever and innovative approach, appropriate to the particular project type. Often, significant improvements can be achieved by applying passive design principles and by the careful selection of materials, fixtures and construction techniques.
In order to support JSA’s commitment to sustainable development we collaborated on Goulburn Valley Health’s (GVH) 10 Star Charity House project. The project aims to deliver a sustainable, high star rated home incorporating current best practice in sustainable design and systems. The planned auction’s profits will go to GVH.
The design and selection of building service systems have a major impact on the energy efficiency and running costs of a project. JSA works closely with other team members to achieve the best possible outcomes within the established project control. JSA ensures our practice is best, our Quality and Environmental Management systems are certified by Best Practice.
