1907 – 1918

In 1907, Atkinson and McLay formed a partnership, the partnership that would inevitably transform in to the Conrad Gargett that continues to practice today. The initial partnership continued their local work that both were involved in as sole practitioners. As well as completing impressive projects like the Brisbane Fire Brigade Headquarters, Desmond Chambers, Ithaca Town Council Chambers and the McWhirters Department Store both partners served as the president of the QIA.
