Our practice has rarely relied upon marketing or advertising, and the majority of our architectural commissions are the result of positive recommendations from previous clients. We are also proud to maintain ongoing relationships with several “repeat” clients from various commercial and retail sectors, who continue to engage our professional services with outstanding and rewarding results.
We asked PA Architects for a space that was different to most medical specialist suites. We wanted to give patients an air of security and strength about the space, but avoid the claustrophobic and conservative. We needed to have good access for mobility-impaired patients, both in wheelchairs and walking aids. We also wanted a durability in the materials, and to avoid the frivolous. Praise has been universal. Patients and their families have responded to the welcoming waiting area, and particularly the alcoves. Access to all areas is excellent and the amount of interest and generated amongst our colleagues has been exceptional.
From 1995 to 2012 I have had the luxury of having PA Architects assist me first as Vice President of McDonald’s South Pacific with projects for McDonald’s Corporation in the South Pacific. Geoff and his team advised and designed McDonald’s restaurants for me in New Caledonia, Samoa, American Samoa, Fiji and Tahiti. Working in a very challenging environment and developing projects that met the worldwide standards for McDonald’s is no easy task and PA Architects did an outstanding job. In 2011 when I moved companies I asked PA Architects to work with me in my role as the Managing Director of the Healthy Habits business in Australia, and develop a new concept. I look forward to working with them again in the future.
Geoff Donaldson and his staff at PA Architects have handled architectural work for McDonald’s restaurants for more than twenty years. I have always found them professional, friendly and efficient and I hope our association continues for many years to come.
We have found PA Architects to be innovative and reliable. They understand our brief and constraints and come up with good layouts which fit in with our requirements. I would like to both endorse and recommend their services. We will continue to engage PA Architects on our future projects
