Our Team

Our Culture

We invest in building a strong reputation as an employer of choice because we know our work is only as good as our people.


We foster an inclusive, diverse team environment that brings together different perspectives and ideas leading to innovation and creativity, celebrating each other’s achievements and milestones, and seeking opportunities to connect.


Our team are not just good architects and designers – they are dynamic communicators who are confident in our collective ability to design better futures but are humble, empathetic, and great listeners throughout the process.

We allow team members to have control over their workflows to give them a sense of ownership that encourages creativity, innovation, accomplishment, and accountability. We also encourage work-life balance by offering flexible work arrangements, promoting a culture of taking time off, actively managing workloads and deadlines, measuring outcomes (not hours), and encouraging team members to disconnect from work during non-working hours.


We foster a culture of continuous improvement, where team members are encouraged to learn, grow, and strive for excellence. We heavily invest in training programs, mentorship, coaching, and career development initiatives to help team members enhance their skills and motivate them to reach their full potential.


In pursuing our vision is to be Queensland’s most loved school architects, we utilise the very best technologies and continually invest in developing industry-leading processes that streamline our processes so that our focus can be serving our clients, deepening our relationships, and delivering the best possible outcomes.
