AMC since 2000

AMC has consolidated its position as one of Canberra’s leading architectural practices since its foundation in 2000. Founding Directors Alastair MacCallum and David Cook established the company with the specific aim of better servicing Canberra clients and this remains core to the business. Over the past 15 years AMC has enjoyed continued success and growth, with a team of 20 delivering a broad range of projects in the Canberra region and with Commonwealth clients throughout Australia. Nevertheless the fundamental principles on which the company was established remain the same – namely that a balance between innovative design and the commercial imperative, underpinned by skilful management and a practical approach, leads to the successful delivery of high quality architectural projects. This remains the cornerstone of the company’s success.

Alastair MacCallum is highly skilled at formulating a project brief and interpreting this into a compelling design solution. He has the capacity to communicate design solutions to clients, authorities and other stakeholders alike and a proven track record of guiding development through the authority approvals process. David Cook is highly skilled at project delivery, able to rationalise a design solution to be fit- for-purpose and logical in terms of construction and the delivery methodology. He has a capacity to establish thorough and coordinated construction documentation, understands project programming from inception to completion and is able to play an effective leadership role in the delivery itself.

Together, Alastair and David make for a strong and experienced leadership team always cognisant of the commercial imperative. They are ably supported by a highly skilled and motivated team of professionals including recently appointed company directors Dean McPherson and Luke Stanton.

AMC are relationship-based and have worked with many clients for more than a decade – often as a strategic partner for mutual benefit. The practice is sometimes described as the quiet achiever, delivering significant scale projects with its down to earth, highly skilled and committed team. We are proud of the projects featured in this website and committed to building strong, trusting long-term relationships with our clients.
