PPS Architects was founded in 2009, started by Luis Prazeres and Paul Sheridan, the two Associate Directors of Pintoroux Architects (established in 1989). It has grown quickly into an office of 12 people.
PPS Architects is a young, dynamic firm which seeks to provide creative solutions to our clients. Our design philosophy is structured to maximise success of our projects and is a result of the emphasis on strong collaborative relationships that we establish with our clients and all project team consultants. PPS Architects works closely with clients, developers, consultants and contractors throughout the entire process of a project. Our projects succeed due to the implementation of solutions that take into account our clients’ needs and objectives, budget and program schedule requirements.
PPS Architects have developed particular expertise in industrial, high density residential and commercial architecture, as both directors have personally overseen a large number of projects and have a combined experience of 32 years.
The firm has a strong team with diverse professional backgrounds with the ability to organise, prioritise and co-ordinate projects with complex interfaces between various professional disciplines and process equipment suppliers. Our focus on project co-ordination substantially reduces waste and delays by mitigating costly reworks. The company is currently pursuing a strategic direction towards implementing Building Information Management (BIM) systems in order to maximise efficiencies and enhance co-ordination of large complex projects.
PPS Architects encourage Green Architecture, where appropriate we implement environmentally sustainable solutions. PPS Architects prides itself in having completed the first LEED Gold building in Africa, the Valpre Bottling Plant in Heidelberg, South Africa.
The directors of PPS Architects possess considerable experience in South Africa and have also undertaken work in UK, Portugal, Mozambique, Angola, Botswana, Tanzania, Uganda, Ghana, and Zambia and have gained valuable experience working in these challenging environments. They have built up long standing relationships with other Design Consultants that work in the region.
Our long term strategy is to consolidate our position as a premium architectural services supplier and to build long-term relationships with our clients by providing superior services that define our commitment to our clients.
