50th Anniversary

Since first established PCPT has hopped offices around Birmingham and the Black Country, but to celebrate a 50th Anniversary there is nowhere more apposite than the Jewellery Quarter where we have settled and built our own building that reflects our values as architects down the years.

To mark and celebrate their 50th anniversary, the founding directors visited the new PCPT office and joined the current directors to share their vision for the future growth of the practice and meet the next generation of architects.

On the anniversary the founding and the current directors met to contemplate navels. For every story there is a modern equivalent to an old one; talk of the current recession evinced tales of working by candlelight in the 3 day week with 17% inflation. It all became a bit like the Monty Python Yorkshiremen comparing their youth sketch!

The company continues to develop and is still strongly rooted in the heritage and traditions of the founders. So long as there is a better solution to a problem than the mundane, we will try it.
