Peter specialises in heritage conservation and building diagnostics projects, and has over 30 years experience in architecture.
He has a life-long passion for history and research and conservation of both the built and natural environment.
He contributes invaluable experience to the practice by sharing his understanding of the operation of the construction industry as a whole, and by utilization of his analytical skills in support the team as mentor and teacher.
Important objectives for Peter are the need to develop architectural solutions which provide practical and achievable solutions in building conservation but which do not compromise the cultural heritage of Australia. Major achievements include leading roles in projects such as the conservation of the sandstone at Sydney Town Hall, the adaptive re-use of 39 Hunter Street office building, repair of the facades of Australia Square, and the upgrading of the MLC North Sydney building.
Peter’s expertise in heritage conservation is recognised through his involvement with the NSW Heritage Council, the National Trust, and by his advice to Councils regarding Development Applications on places of heritage significance.
Allied with his leading role in heritage conservation is his involvement in building diagnostics, an expertise that draws upon the forensic skills also needed in heritage conservation architecture. He is the Director responsible for managing the long-standing association between Jackson Teece and Building Diagnostics Asia Pacific. Prominent projects in this field include some of Sydney’s most important modern buildings such as the MLC Centre, 259 George Street and the HSBC Centre.
