Icon is pleased to announce that Melbourne based construction company, Atelier Projects will be integrated into Icon and become its third Australian brand alongside Barpa and Minicon.
Atelier is considered an industry leader in mass timber construction and has made a significant investment in cross-laminated timber (CLT) technology.
Icon’s parent company, Kajima Corporation, thrives on innovative technology and new business techniques and has recognised the huge potential of Atelier’s specialist capabilities in CLT.
Atelier’s specialist capabilities in CLT and innovative construction will enable Icon to diversify its offering in Victoria, and ultimately across Australia and New Zealand and will ensure Icon continues to offer its clients the latest innovative and quality building solutions.

The integration of Atelier into Icon will have no impact on Icon’s business or its day to day operations other than to include CLT into its client offering.
Atelier will continue to be managed by founding partners Jason O’Hara and Lisa Loschiavo. As Atelier’s current projects complete their teams will have the opportunity to transition into Icon’s
