End of Year Message

The global pandemic has brought tragic and unprecedented challenges, but also opportunities for growth and transformation.

We were fortunate to have the systems and technology in place to ensure continuity through the year. We are truly thankful for our agile, connected team, collaborating both digitally and physically. The office continues its important role as a focus to bind together PTW staff from wherever they may be.


This has been a year of significant achievements, with recent award winning or shortlisted projects that reflect the rich diversity of our practice including: The REVY adaptive re-use residential more; Gateway 2 commercial more; Penrith Public School more; Mounties Head office workplace interior more.

Diversity and Ethical Practice

We are thankful for the progressive nature of our practice, enriched by our highly diverse team, which exceeds the 40:40:20 gender targets across every level (including 50% female directors) more.

We celebrate our endorsement for the ‘Reflect’ phase of our Reconciliation Action Plan with Reconciliation Australia and benefit from our indigenous team members and industry engagement more.

As we look to 2021 we also welcome the continuing far-reaching reform initiatives of the Design and Building Practitioners Act, and are proud of our strong, long-standing reputation for quality.

On behalf of the directors and staff of PTW we are grateful for the strong relationships, exciting projects and supportive network of our peers and we look forward to starting the next year in better shape than we ever have been.

We wish you all a happy and relaxing holiday break.

Simon Parsons
PTW Managing Director Asia Pacific, Sydney Practice Leader
