What makes a great place to live, visit and work?
Wavefront promotes healthy living, a commitment to our environment, and enjoyment of our surroundings in all our plans and designs. We believe that the final built form reflects the best of what humans can create. We are passionate about ensuring that both nature and economic well-being go hand-in-hand. After all, the best laid plans gather dust unless they can be realistically implemented.
Our rapidly changing world and our country's commitment to climate change resilience are constantly in our minds as we seek out new, innovative and cost-effective solutions. A sustainable future for our planet is the greatest contribution we can give to future generations. We are inspired to continue promoting economically viable, sustainable solutions in all our projects.
