What we deliver

We believe that for projects to be sustainable for the long term, excellent outcomes across the spiritual, social, environmental and financial dimensions of each development within its community context is required.

Site Activation – Driving our designs

An activated site is one that is accessible to and well used by the community in which it is located. Such sites tend to offer a range of services and opportunities for the community to make use of and engage with at different times and for a variety of reasons. While activated sites might take on different forms and functions, what is common across all is that people are making use of them. SDG is passionate about supporting our partners to activate their sites, for the benefit of their communities. This perspective provides a lens through which we consider design and delivery.
