Fyfe says the move offers a “unique chance to assist in shaping the local built environment backed by Gray Puksan’ds national expertise.”

“In a market where the expertise of a national and interstate team is often sought, I’m pleased to be able to bring my extensive knowledge of the Canberra market to work on bigger, and more impactful, projects,” explains Fyfe. 

“With the local Canberra government placing significant investment into the development of the future of the city, I look forward to continuing Gray Puksand’s reputation for innovative  design outcomes, which is founded on a culture of design excellence, trusted client  relationships and integrity.”

With more than 25 years of experience in interior design and architecture, Fyfe arrives with a portfolio full of significant project’s across Australia, including Services Australia, the Department of Home Affairs, and the Australian Securities and Investment Commission.

Fyfe is also Canberra’s only WELL Building Accredited Professional designer, and a Green Building Council of Australia (Green Star) AP, which translates to a passion for advancing human health and wellness through environmentally sustainable practices in design and construction.

“While we are seeing an increased focus on health, wellbeing and sustainability in all projects and sectors, my accreditations offer me the confidence and experience to keep pushing for innovation in this space and ensure sustainable building practices are the way of the future,” says Fyfe.

“What I enjoy most about my work in design and construction is being part of a collaborative  team focused on high-quality design outcomes – engaging with clients, stakeholders and the  design team to produce buildings and interiors that enhance the working environment for all  users of the building.”
