AMC Design + Management was established in June 2000 by Alastair MacCallum and David Cook with the specific aim of better servicing Canberra clients. The words Design + Management clearly articulate the Directors aspirations – namely that a balance between innovative design and skilful management of the briefing, client and team communication and the documentation and construction phases underpins the successful delivery of high quality buildings and interiors projects. 15 years on this remains the cornerstone of the companys success. We are proud of the projects featured in this website, but what matters more to us is building strong trusting long term relationships with our clients based on effective listening, being responsive and service orientated.
Alastair MacCallum is highly skilled at formulating a project brief and interpreting this into a compelling design solution. He has a 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 a 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 new Directors Dean McPherson and Luke Stanton.
Since 2000 AMC has enjoyed continued success and growth and is now well-established as one of the Canberra‘s leading architectural practice servicing a select group of Canberra based clients. The practice has at times been described by some as the quiet achiever, delivering significant scale projects in Canberra and indeed across Australia with its highly skilled team.
