This is a movement, a new paradigm, and SHAC is helping to define and shape it.
Educational architecture is a privileged discipline and at SHAC our team of collaborative architects, interior designers and project managers take a thorough, holistic approach to teaching and learning spaces.
"To all the team, well done and congratulations. What an achievement! I know the entire team would be celebrating this achievement and also know that the success is very much a team approach. The layout of the SHAC office articulates this team approach. You are very deserving of the award. As an educator I am well aware of the team’s deep understanding of what is required in contemporary teaching spaces and this architectural award speaks volumes about the qualities of yourself and your team."

"The entire team that SHAC have engaged to work on this project have been committed and conscious of all the pressures and risks, along with a good understanding of the project brief. We have found SHAC to be extremely proactive in seeking and proposing issue resolution strategies at this early concept stage. Many times going above and beyond the brief to fully test all options that may assist the client in obtaining the best possible result. I also would like to note that I appreciate that they have been available at any time I have requested their time to consult on specific issues."

At all times they listened to what we asked of them and worked towards an optimal solution. They take enormous pride in their work and desire an excellent outcome. I have been particularly impressed with my interactions with Justin Hamilton and Elizabeth Brown. I believe that we have obtained a building which is both innovative and excellent."
