Niger Building - UNECA Campus, Addis Ababa
We design Building Services systems to be pragmatic solutions that suit the local environment; are easy to install and cost effective to maintain. Equipment is selected regionally and responds to the level of resilience required for a long serviceable life.
Structural & Civil
Design of efficient Building Structures requires lateral thinking and a strong understanding of a first principles approach. Seismic, cyclonic, untested materials, un-exacting construction methods all require years of experience which the GreenLeaf Sky team offers in bags.
Due Diligence &
Our team of Sky Engineers have worked all over the world and have delivered a diverse portfolio of work under a myriad of different contract laws and construction methodologies. We are ideally suited to provide due diligence reporting and onsite construction administration for all Engineering disciplines.
GreenLeaf Sky was created to service a burgeoning need for specialist engineering skills that suited an increasing demand in international work, largely in the Public sector but now in the Leisure, Retail and Commercial sectors too. Over the last 10 years, GreenLeaf Sky has worked all over the world for prestigious Government departments and subsidiaries.
We employ between 5 and 20 specialist engineers at any one time on a renewable contract basis that lasts 2 years. Engineers work remotely and communicate with each other and clients through modern web based platforms. They leverage their in-country or regional experience to deliver the best design strategies that relate to resilience, availability of materials and equipment, cost and procurement advice and using our international connections to leverage a "think globally act locally' work flow.
Locations Worked In
Cost of Development
GLS were commissioned by James Cubitt Architects to design and prepare a set of traditional contract documents for the Building Services and ESD disciplines. Construction has now commenced and we have a 2 year role of Construction Administration.
$650m historic refurbishment of one of the United Nations most proclaimed heritage buildings. Working for Conrad Gargett we have designed a worlds first passive cooling system.
For nearly 20 years this man made island off the coast of Samoa lay waiting for Lamana Developments and Thompson Adsett Architects to create a very special destination. GLS integrated a recycled water policy, UPS and off grid generator solutions whilst minimising electrical energy through passive cooling solutions.
This was a 4 year project which began with being part of a DFAT team to scout a suitable site in Addis Ababa. GLS designed, documented and administered a multidiscipline engineering team on behalf of James Cubitt and DFAT (OPO).
Designed in Brisbane in conjunction with an architect based in Panama, delivered in Luanda, Angola
GreenLeaf Sky were engaged as Multi discipline engineers on this $1.1bn expansion of East Gheran in Libya. the site was 100ha and situated on the shore of the Mediterranean. The project was to develop a large residential community adjacent to North gheran which was being developed as a commercial retail hub.
Designed to be Africa's tallest tower.
GLS were engaged on behalf of DFAT (James Cubitt Architects) to undertake a Feasability and Scheme Design commisison for a full multi discipline engineering role. Earth coupled thermal labyrinth's and night time passive cooling were a few of the feature introduced to this exciting project.
We are an award winning practice and are looking for talent to support our rapidly expanding international portfolio.
We empower our team with a flat management structure that promotes autonomy of design, mastery of engineering skill with the purpose of designing sustainable futures.
The diversity of projects you will undertake with us will keep you constantly inspired; take you around the world and present opportunities for the hands on experience previous roles might have lacked.
Relax. This does not mean longer hours; it means you will be travelling, designing world-class sustainable, resilient and beautiful buildings. It means that you will need all of your professional and life experience to deliver a portfolio of work that is as diverse as your imagination.
