Bruce Wolfe, Conrad Gargett’s Managing Director stated, “We are pleased to announce the appointment of Tony Jemmott as a Director of Conrad Gargett. Tony and his team complement Conrad Gargett in bringing a strong design reputation and expertise to our practice.”
Tony Jemmott, founding Director of Jemmott Associates acknowledged the announcement, “I am honored to merge Jemmott Associates and join Conrad Gargett as a Director. This merger is a dovetailing of goals that will provide our experienced and talented team with opportunities to develop and combine our strengths in a larger urban context, while allowing us to focus our abilities where they will have the most impact.”
“Jemmott Associates has used an economy of means to deliver maximum meaning in places where architecture is often not expected to be found. We have championed a collaborative design process between client, builder and architect where all voices are heard from conceptualisation to the realisation of each project. In every instance we have strived to create places that enrich the lives of the people that use them.”
Tony’s proficiency is in urban design and master planning, health, education, hospitality, residential and commercial sectors. Driven by an interest in humanist and sustainable outcomes, he has achieved successful project outcomes characterised by rational, cost effective structures and building fabrics that provide environmentally responsive and adaptable spaces. Tony has a particular commitment to delivering quality design and has specialist skills in working across disciplines to achieve integrated urban design outcomes. He has built a reputation for award winning design quality, and successful time and cost management of completed projects. Tony’s approachable and client focused demeanour is reputable as well.
Tony is also dedicated to advancing the interests of the profession through its peak body, the Australian Institute of Architects. His roles include Queensland Chapter Councillor and member of the 2016 State Architectural Awards Jury.
Tony says, “In acknowledging our different strengths and emphases, Conrad Gargett’s reputation to deliver client focused architecture and Jemmott Associates’ focus on strong regional design identity, we understand the benefits that we each bring to the table. Ultimately good architecture is an accumulation of experiences and together we share the common goal of ‘creating meaningful places for people.’”
