Deep Green Engineering
We give life to high performance buildings and communities that respect and enrich the earth. We accelerate the shift towards environmentally responsive design by making sustainable designs affordable.
Believe in Better. We are challenging ourselves to design and manufacture innovative products with reduced environmental and social impacts. We feel a profound sense of responsibility to advance our shared mission of a more sustainable future. We provide quality of design that takes your project to a different level than you may have thought possible; innovation that solves challenges before you even knew about them; and a mandate of sustainability in every product and every choice we make.

We develop creative, comprehensive and sustainable engineering solutions for a future where society can thrive. Equipped with an intimate understanding of local intricacies, world-class talent and proactive leadership, we plan, design, manage and engineer long lasting and impactful solutions to uniquely complex problems.

We believe living infrastructure provides our built environment with natural beauty and living design as well as happier and healthier people. We want to turn our cities into urban jungles with plants growing everywhere: on the walls of car parks and highways, inside and outside buildings, along lane-ways, on our rooftops.

The Living Future Institute of Australia (LFIA) is committed to a society which is socially just, culturally rich and ecologically restorative, aligning closely with Frasers Property Australia’s own values and vision for a more sustainable future. At Frasers Property, we believe our changing world demands a different approach and we have chosen to partner with the LFIA to collaboratively share our skills, knowledge and passion, so that we may excel in this vision.
