The ACA – Qld/NT Annual Members Lunch saw members to come together, discuss issues and celebrate the ACA member practice’s recently registered architects – the future leaders who will be shaping our communities.

Congratulations to Geraldine Camaroni of Thomson Adsett, Michelle Duvall of dwp|suters, Davin Eggar, Dustin Johnston and Daniel Sorbello of Peddle Thorp.

During the open forum, there was robust discussion of “Best and Final Offer”, negotiation of fees and procurement of contracts, challenges of tendering and the speed for turn around, international practices moving into the marketplace, and the education of graduate architects and the benefits of working in a practice before your graduate.

The event concluded with the following quote:

 “The greatest satisfaction, I think, is when a building opens and the public possesses it and you cut the umbilical cord and you see it taking on its own life. There’s no greater satisfaction.” – Moshe Safdie
