About us: Making a difference

SEMF knows that its ability to shape the built environment has the potential to impact future generations and cultivate a tradition of change. It’s for this reason that sustainable thinking is not merely a corporate aspiration but a force that guides everything we do. We put the social, human and economic effects of our actions front and centre of every project and implement policies to reduce our environmental footprint and pave the way for eco-conscious and ethically driven practices.

This focus also underpins our client relationships and helps us master the difficult art of realising sustainable visions while exceeding commercial goals. We collaborate with developers to plan and construct buildings that meet Greenstar and NABER requirements and work with our industrial clients to embrace cleaner production processes and energy efficient technologies.

SEMF champions sustainability values by investing in research and development and understands that failure to improve knowledge can create barriers to innovation. We work closely with businesses, groups and government to develop long-term community engagement strategies and strive to combat issues such as global warming and climate change. SEMF also takes corporate responsibility seriously and actively engages with a range of charitable and humanitarian causes.
