How We work

At AAD it's all about results and service. All our projects have been produced through a multidisciplinary approach, sharing knowledge and expertise to achieve individualised, creative solutions.



AAD Design began operations in 1999, and quickly grew to be one of the premier building design companies in Brisbane. At AAD Design it's all about results and service. We recognised that we could give our clients more value by combining multiple services under one roof and offer them a full, end to end service; in doing so created a tight knit multidisciplinary team that shares knowledge and expertise. We work together to provide our clients with unrivalled service and a finished product that exceeds expectations. We are of the belief that experience matters but expertise is what makes a difference; because of this we are continually looking for and learning better ways to provide our services and reach new levels of excellence.

We pride ourselves in being an "end to end" service for developers and home owners a like, who can come to us with a site and an idea and leave with a complete set of approvals for their investment or their dream home. It is our mission to make a positive contribution to the built environment and inject our passion of producing outstanding solutions into any project we undertake.



At AAD Design we have an experienced and dynamic team with collective industry experience of over 180 years. One of the greatest advantages of working with AAD Design is the specialist knowledge in a range of fields throughout the office. Every project in our office benefits from a multi-disciplinary collaborative approach that ensures a holistic solution for every client that walks through our door. Our proven ability to deliver exceptional results for projects of all scales and industry sectors is the result of team that listens, thinks creatively and draws on every resource possible to provide the best solution; resulting in a large portfolio of completed works.


At the heart of AAD Design is Albert Daher. His vision of incorporating town planning, architectural design and project management under one roof has brought together a close team of multidisciplinary professionals that share and apply knowledge on different aspects of every project. All disciplines are constructively assessed and supported by a strong Senior Executive Team to achieve consistency and the highest standard of applied knowledge.

"Great team to work with – Very clear description of process, responsibilities and charges. Support for all areas within the same office. Have recommended to others."
Derek Edgar, GRADED Investments & Developments pty ltd


We have had a great working relationship with AAD Design and its directors since 2012. In that time we have completed over $5M dollars' worth of work. AAD Design has always  been responsive to onsite issues/ administration/ documentation; furthermore they are proactive on the monthly progress claims. One of AAD Designs points of difference is the design coordination, the drawing/ documentation that is provided to us for construction is far more comprehensive than any other consultant we have dealt with. We hope to continue this strong working relationship with AAD and would highly recommend them as a Construction partner.

Rohan Barry, J Hutchinson Pty Ltd

"AAD Design, you were responsive and helpful during all stages. Good information was provided and your team was a pleasure to deal with. Time was taken to explain details and work through issues. You absolutely meet my expectation and I would have no hesitation using you for my next building project. Thank-you."
Gregg Howards

"Thanks very very much for your time, expertise, understanding and goodwill, we greatly appreciate it and we are very satisfied by the outcome."
"Our family group of companies has undertaken a number of property developments over the years and we were fortunate to have crossed paths with Albert and AAD Design several years ago. We have engaged them to design, document and gain town planning approval for several projects. Albert's feasibility service and town planning advice has been very helpful when assessing a site's potential and his town planning team present complete and convincing applications. Our recent projects have progressed smoothly and in a timely fashion through the various stages of creation under the management of the team leader appointed by AAD Design. We are kept regularly informed of a project's progress and we know our interests are always well represented when consultants or builders are included in the project team. We have taken advantage of AAD Design's broad range of services. Written correspondence and fee proposals are always clear and easy to understand. Consequently, we have no hesitation in highly recommend AAD Design's complete and thoughtful service."
Errol Hawkins, Director/CEO Hawkins Group
"We had plans prepared elsewhere for a major renovation to our house and needed town planning approval. Realising that AAD Design had a town planner on staff we approached Albert to obtain the necessary approvals. A review of the plans identified aspects of the design that could improve the layout, function and appeal of the building. We went back to the design stage and AAD worked with us through the design, town planning and building approval process to create a new and exciting solution to our home renovation. We are very pleased that we accepted the constructive and well advised comments from AAD Design. We ended up with a house that will provide us with quality living while we live in the house and we know that we will get a greater return for our investment when we sell."

"We have engaged AAD Design for several projects now. For our last project in Herston, AAD design helped us to achieve an additional 12 dwelling units (+34% GFA) over what would normally be expected. We are extremely happy with this result which has increased our profit margin significantly."
Marooma Pty Ltd
"Thankyou for what has been seamless and very good experience taking our concept drawings through to DA. Applications I work on take 3 years or more and can end up in Court so I was very hesitant to go down the DA path with our house. The outcome you have provided is excellent."
Ian Baldwin, Development Manager
"Our family business has been in property development for many decades and over the years we have used many architects. Once we found AAD Design we found their expertise helped us to reduce our construction costs and increase our profit margins. We have been using their services now for the last 18 years."
SKPD Pty Ltd
"Thank you for coming to visit us yesterday. We were quite amazed to meet someone who thinks out of the square!"
Lisa Holownia
"The home is restored with sensitivity and a sense of the past. The home now accommodates modern needs with the graciousness of the period in which it was built."
92 Enoggera Terrace
"I love all the 'nooks and crannies' the home has, but more than anything else I love the outdoor entertaining area. It has a very relaxed sort of atmosphere, which is perfectly suited to our climate and lifestyle. Making the most of the sloping narrow block, the home has been very cleverly designed to catch the eye at every angle and maintain a spacious contemporary feel. Everywhere you look there is something of interest."
