HPA Projects

We have considerable experience with adaptive re-use of heritage buildings. Our work has regularly required a sensitive approach to major fit-out and refurbishment of heritage listed structures which require a considered strategy for complex systems fit-out without major intervention to the fabric.

Contemporary obligations to access and code compliance as well as significant mechanical and wired servicing requirements for modern facilities are a major part of our work.

We often work closely with conservation and heritage specialists; architects, archaeological experts, historians and specialist engineers.

We have received a number of heritage conservation awards for adaptive re-use.

Projects include:

  • State Library New South Wales, Sydney, Australia.
  • Pylon Lookout, Sydney Harbour Bridge, Australia.
  • Bond Store, Wellington Museum, Wellington, New Zealand.
  • Old Hale School, Perth, Australia.
  • Old Parliament House, Canberra, Australia.
  • Australian National Memorial, Villers-Bretonneux, France.
  • Rocks Archways, BridgeClimb Re-Development, Sydney, Australia.
