Gran Associates Australia have a solid record of delivering high-quality projects, with a particular focus on the institutional and government sectors. Our principles of design excellence and quality performance enable us to deliver innovative, cost-effective solutions. We follow these up with thorough documentation, produced with an eye for detail and for quality, to enable effective costing and construction.
At Gran Associates Australia, we are known for our ability to listen to and to manage interactions between all stakeholders in the project. On a Gran project, all user groups and all members of the project team are actively involved. The result is that the right decisions are made at the right time, and we successfully deliver high quality, timely project outcomes.
Gran Associates Australia is a full-service architecture and planning firm, based in Sydney Australia. We provide creative, effective solutions for a wide range of public, commercial and residential clients, with a particular emphasis on institutional architecture. We were founded in 2005 by Peter Reed, the Principal Director. Prior to returning to Australia to establish the company, Peter was an Associate with Gran Associates in New York, USA.
In 2009 Tony Kemeny joined Peter as a director of Gran Associates Australia. Tony brought with him over thirty years of experience practicing in Sydney Australia.
Since foundation, Gran Associates Australia has rapidly expanded into a dynamic, flexible organisation with the ability to provide responsive managerial and technical resources to service a wide variety of projects.
Our staffing levels and managerial resources are maintained to maximise their effectiveness. Our professional staff are trained to provide the personal attention necessary to ensure a smooth and efficient project. All of our architectural staff are highly skilled professionals. We have an active professional development program to ensure that staff continuously update their professional skills.
In addition to our core staff, we are able to draw on expertise from a range of specialist consultants. During their decades of local experience, both Peter Reed and Tony Kemeny have developed many associations with specialist professionals who can offer their expertise as required. This allows us to remain a carefully focussed firm with low overheads. We are able to deliver innovative and successful solutions to complex problems because we have the power to harness assistance from this array of experts as needed.
