Testimonials

BP NSW has enjoyed a long and mutually fruitful association with MCHP Architects dating back to 1992. Since then they have provided us with all of our Architectural and Design needs and arranged and co-ordinated our Planning, Survey and Engineering requirements.

The high level of professionalism and focus on customer service that the MCHP team offers is in my opinion, unsurpassable in the industry. They continue to impress us with their adaptability, diversity and willingness to take on new and complex challenges. They learn quickly and never compromise on quality.

I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending MCHP for all of your Architectural needs…

We will be forever grateful and will recommend your services without reservation. Thank you for everything. Please feel free to have any of your clients or potential clients call us directly. We are more than happy to tell them about our wonderful experience.

I engaged MCHP Architects on two occasions in the past eight years for extensions to our family home. We are proud to say the initial extension won a Housing Industry Association Award.

From the first day of both our extensions, MCHP Architects listened to what we wanted and considered our needs throughout the process. They explained each step of the architectural and building process and were always willing to give advice. MCHP Architects were always reliable and professional and kept in close contact throughout the building process. We really appreciated their frankness and openness.

MCHP Architects worked with us to create a design, which has enhanced our lifestyle dramatically and has allowed us to fulfil all our needs as our family grows and changes.

We would highly recommend the services of MCHP Architects.
Mr Phil Clarke
Lane Cove, NSW

We employed MCHP Architects to design and co-ordinate major interior re-fitout works on our four storey office building in Sydney.

To suit our changing needs, MCHP Architects produced a design which organised all of our existing and new workstations and offices through a more effective use of our existing space. They also designed a new, more welcoming yet secure reception area and new seminar / gathering facilities which use openable dividing walls to give us flexible room sizes whenever we need.

MCHP Architects co-ordinated the fitout works in stages and arranged for building works after hours to keep our office operational during the construction process. They also co-ordinated all of the building services including air-conditioning, lighting, data, telecommunications and selected all finishes and furnishings.

We appreciated the excellent service provided by MCHP Architects by running the process from start to finish. We now have a more functional and more enjoyable place to work.

Mr Dick Shearman
NSW Independent Education Union

In 1974 the company of which I was the Property Director looked for an architectural practice that combined the elements of good design capability, expertise in dealing with regulatory bodies and building contracts, and competent supervision of the construction process.

Coupled with these professional skills was the necessity for the practitioners to recognise the commercial requirements in any development process, with skilful economic solutions to the problems involved and the ability to deal with people.

We found this in the Minnett Cullis-Hill Petersen [MCHP Architects] architectural practice and subsequently used them exclusively in developments including major industrial buildings, neighbourhood shopping centres, a cinema complex, sundry retail arcades and other smaller projects. In addition the practice was used for residential work, in one case involving difficult logistical problems, in another difficult site restrictions.

In all the work, the practice gave excellent professional service and are to be recommended.

Peter Glass and Associates, Landscape Architects and Environmental Planners, has had the pleasure of working with MCHP Architects on a large range of industrial, institutional, commercial and residential projects over the last twenty years. We have always found MCHP to provide professional, personalised architectural design and documentation services, on projects both large and small. MCHP have worked with us on projects both as head-consultant and sub-consultant and we look forward to continuing our working relationship with them for many years to come.

Managing Director – Peter Glass and Associates

We have used MCHP Architects Pty Ltd in various capacities here on our premises for many years.

MCHP helped with the refurbishment of our clubhouse, providing upgraded facilities in the locker room and change room areas and rationalising the staff, unloading and storage areas on the lower floor. The fees charged were competitive and the service was both professional and personal. All refurbishment work was done on time and within budget.

Their design for a proposed building addition will much improve the facilities that we will be able to provide to members and guests and also provided the club with much needed function room space and access for disabled persons.

In addition to this, MCHP assisted the club in obtaining a grant from the EPA and with the major construction of two dams. MCHP was able to find a consultant for this project with the necessary skills and ideology to suit the club’s requirements. The dams are filled using stormwater run off and the water is used to irrigate the entire golf course. This project has provided the club with an environmentally friendly solution to properly maintain the course and is providing on going cost savings.

We would have no hesitation in recommending MCHP Architects Pty Ltd for any job, small or large.
