Last Friday we celebrated 10 years of being Pacific Environments NZ Ltd, with a fantastic get-together with current staff and those past staff who weren’t exploring the globe, tending to new babies or dotted around the country.

The past 10 years has seen us grow (from around 14 staff to needing new desks at 29) and move offices (which we celebrate 3 years in this coming Tuesday) into our purpose designed building.

We’ve had some amazing projects – the Treehouse, some stunning house sites with the most amazing views, the Waiheke Library, the National Aquatic Centre, that trip to China…(to name a few)…I wonder what the next 10 years will bring?

Before we were Pacific Environments NZ Ltd we were two companies – ADP and Pacific Environments.

ADP had John, George and Phil at the helm, with Clive as an associate. ADP have a long history stretching back 50 years and hold the West Plaza and Harbour Board Building in their portfolio, along with a bunch of awards up their sleeve.

Pacific Environments was a newly formed company by Pete who had recently parted ways after 18 years as founding director of Architects Patterson.

The two companies met and merged, becoming Pacific Environments NZ Ltd, bringing together lots of amazing projects, knowledge, skills, and a fantastic team.

So Happy Birthday PENZL, and many happy returns for the year.

(and as a little side note, we are looking at adding to the PENZL family and are on the look out for a registered architect! If that sounds like you best to email Grant at
