We pride ourselves on performance, safety, adding value and delivering results. We never miss a deadline, always deliver in full and within budget.
An accountable and stable subcontractorOur experienced design team proudly meets each project’s architectural intent and strives to accelerate time from design to project delivery. We bring decades of knowledge to your project which creates efficiencies that speed up trades downstream.

AFS partnerships with government
The Borallon Training and Correctional Centre near Ipswich was re-opened in 2016 under a new model to reduce re-offending and recidivism. AFS established a small factory inside Borallon as part of the workRestart initiative in 2016 which offers inmates a major step towards rebuilding their lives. The prison also runs a TAFE campus with around 50 courses onsite.
The workRestart initiative gives inmates access to work opportunities where they can learn and/or earn money from a trade. This initiative gives them access to work opportunities which improves behaviour and helps them more easily secure a job when released. On a day to day basis it encourages inmates to look forward to a positive, steady life in the future. Already fewer inmates have returned to jail since leaving Borallon.
AFS also works with educational facilities such as TAFE to drive upskilling and uptake of specialisations in the construction industry that are severely under-resourced.
