John Pearce

Associate Director

John has been with Spowers since 1984 and is an Associate Director. John’s primary role is Project Architect, managing a number of projects including small fit-outs, large scale laboratories, apartment buildings and educational projects. He successfully manages teams or works independently depending on the scale of the project. His strength is his ability to follow projects through from conception to completion. He has also been involved with custodial projects, which incorporated a period of secondment to the Department of Justice to assist in writing a brief for new prisons in Victoria.

John was Spowers Quality Manager for 18 years. Whilst he recently handed over the role to others within the company, he is still actively involved with Quality Assurance 9001, 14001 and Office Procedures.

As part of our collaboration with our overseas offices, John has been involved in creating standards for construction which have been used in the documentation of a number of multi-residential developments.
