Our vision is simple: to redefine sustainable property development and lead the market to set new benchmarks in eco-living.

We believe eco-friendly design isn’t a nice-to-have – it’s fundamental to our survival. We also know it doesn’t have to cost more, and offers a far better quality of life.

There’s nothing superficial about our eco-designs. Our projects feature automated passive climate control systems, triple glazed windows, and Australia’s first green-roofed terrace houses.

We offer true sustainability in every design and construction choice through research, innovation, and building on the best of new technology.

We believe in profit for purpose.

As architects, builders and developers, we have total control over the quality of our properties, allowing us to explore and execute our vision without compromise.

Most property developers have limited technical expertise. They minimise risk with mundane design choices, meeting minimum requirements for thermal comfort and energy efficiency. We break through, proving that exciting, sustainable developments can be profitable, in-demand, and a joy to live in.

Once buyers see just how good housing can be, they’ll demand more from developers. Once developers see it works, they’ll do it. Through innate market forces, a higher level of sustainable design will become the norm. Steele Associates is at the forefront of the drive towards a sustainable future.

My mission is to show the world that sustainable development works for people, industry, and the planet. To prove that people want healthy, comfortable homes that cost less to live in; and that it makes dollars and sense for developers – now and in the future.
