We help to deliver thoughtful, livable spaces.



Ecofficient Design is an Environmental Sustainable Design (ESD) Consulting practice.

Since 2012, we have been working closely with Building Designers, Architects, Developers, Home Owners and the like, to successfully help deliver sustainable buildings and design solutions.

ESD compliance has now become a natural part of the planning and building permit process.  The benefit of Ecofficient Design is that we're able to assist throughout this entire process, making us your one stop shop.

Whilst we are a small practice, our services cover a vast range of projects, from single and multi-unit dwellings to schools, medical clinics, restaurants, office buildings and everything in-between.

We are located in the bustling suburb of Richmond, Victoria.  Having lived in both inner and outer Melbourne areas, we know first hand what it's like to experience four seasons in one day.  With a real understanding of local climatic conditions, we know what it takes to achieve good thermal performance.  Contact us today to see how we can assist with your next project!



Well... we let our work do the talking.


Word of mouth has always been our most powerful marketing tool.

Our passion for Sustainable Design and attention to detail has been a true testament to our success and growth over recent years.  More importantly, our Clients recognise the value of the service we provide.  Which makes us really, really proud!

So what is it that makes our Clients keep coming back to us?  And why do they recommend Ecofficient Design?


Do you have a general enquiry?  Give us a call, or send us an email.  We are available throughout our business hours (and sometimes, well beyond!).


From engagement to completion, we'll always keep you up-to-date with the progress of your report(s).


While most ESD practices can deliver a 6 star solution, many over-engineer designs and, as a result, deliver expensive solutions. Our vast experience enables us to deliver very cost-effective ESD solutions to meet your design requirements.


​​We're not here to pump reports out the door.  That's not what we're about.  Regardless of your ESD knowledge, we take the time to explain our design solutions.  For each project, we'll point out the positives, the negatives and identify key items which would improve your design from an ESD perspective.



We haven't always had our feet tucked under a desk.  Whilst having over 10 years experience in the Building Design industry, Managing Director, Josh Fraser, gained invaluable experience working on-site alongside a residential builder for 2 years.


Each year we exceed our Continuing Professional Development (CPD) requirements.  Not that we have to, but because we feel it puts us on the forefront in terms of product awareness, regulatory changes and business management.


We know your time is valuable.  In many cases, we're the final piece of the puzzle to your project.  We strive to complete our work in a timely manner, without compromising on quality.
