Evidence of the company’s integrity and professionalism lies in its client base, of whom many have retained ADC over decades since the 1960’s. ADC have played an integral role in the development of Queensland for over 5 decades working on large and small scale developments across the whole state and northern New South Wales.

A regular client, one of South East Queensland’s oldest and most successful developers, has retained ADC since 1969 and utilises its full range of land development consultancy services, including town planning, urban design and surveying. This is due in part to their dedication to continued technical excellence, efficiency, reliability and cost-effectiveness.

Led by company principal Michael Arnold, son of Steve Arnold founder of the family business, ADC has been strengthened and kept at the forefront of the planning and surveying disciplines. Planning and urban design have always been prominent in the company’s work, and the contemporary focus of a total approach from planning to completion rests comfortably within their range of skills and expertise.

Developers and landholders seeking to optimise the value of their properties have identified the benefits of dealing with a single business which can transform a vision into reality. Drawing on vast experience in dealing with the state and municipal authorities, ADC provide accurate and effective consulting advice in all areas of land use. Sound, informative decisions made at the planning level can have a crucial impact later in any project’s life-span.

ADC take their responsibility to their clients and to the communities they serve seriously. They realise that their work has far-reaching implications and maintain a firm focus on quality throughout the life-span of every project. It is this firm focus, forged with experience and contemporary professional practices, that allows ADC to deliver on time, on budget and to the satisfaction of all parties concerned.
