the current Directorate

The current Directorate is a well-established and long serving team comprising five Directors, each heading up their own team, four of which are Architectural and one Quantity Surveying.

There are no prevailing egos here and each Director sees his role here as a custodian of this long standing practice and hopes that during the course of his career his contribution will leave the practice in a better and stronger position to serve generations to come.
