Since its establishment in 1986, PAI Design has provided both foreign and local expertise in one company. The firm, under design and production director Thomas Elliott, is also purposely structured as a studio style architectural firm with design and production staff as one group, to ensure continuity of design and co-ordination from conceptualisation through to implementation. The design partner in charge of each job oversees the project's development at each stage, ensuring architectural coherence.
Over the years the firm has developed a reputation for design excellence on a variety of projects from commercial buildings to private residences. Project experience also includes master planning of residential and resort developments; restaurants; hospitals; offices and industrial projects.
