Higgin Lloyd and Partners was established in 1966 and prior to the amalgamation had undertaken over twelve hundred projects in Papua New Guinea, the Pacific Islands and Australia. W M Phillips Architects was formed in 1978 following the PNG Parliament House Design Competition when Bill Phillips won the competition. Both firms brought extensive experience covering a wide variety of major commercial, residential and industrial buildings completed throughout the South Pacific Region. PAC Architects undertakes work throughout Papua New Guinea, Northern Australia and the Pacific Islands including Fiji, the Solomon Islands, Vanuatu, and New Zealand. Consultancies have been undertaken in Guam, the Federal States of Micronesia, The Republic of Palau and the Marshall Islands.
PAC Architects have always had a simple philosophy:
“to provide every client with the best possible outcome for their particular project possible”.
We believe that our philosophy is the reason that PAC Architect has operated continuously with Head Office in Port Moresby since 1966. Not unexpectedly PAC Architects has undergone name changes and a succession of principal Architects:
1966 – Commencement “Higgin Lloyd and Partners”.
1978 – W.M Phillips was formed in 1978 after winning the design completion for Parliament Haus.
1989 – Higgin Lloyd and W.M Phillips amalgamated to form: Pacific Architects Consortium (PNG) Limited.
2009 – Name was change to: Pacific Architects (PNG) Limited trading as PAC Architects.
