In 2002, Roger and Jane decided to pursue other more specialised goals in architecture and left in June 2002, leaving the four Directors running three interdependent and vital offices in Brisbane, Tweed Heads and Sydney.
Throughout this period, the practice continued to develop its specialist expertise in health, aged care, educational and local government buildings.
Mark Trotter worked three days a week in Sydney until 2008, working on many school projects with a growing Sydney staff managed by Greg Isaac.
Paul Trotter took over the western Queensland work from Mark and Robert and built upon our reputation for quality civic projects in the region, extending the work to Mount Isa and North Queensland – working closely with associates John Hay and Paul Sekava, who joined Fulton Trotter in 1992 and 1996.
Andrew Armstrong and Robert Wesener continued to build our northern rivers and Gold Coast presence with the valued assistance of associates Bruce Hawley and Greg Mulheran, who joined the practice in 1987 and 1994 respectively.
In 2004, Frank Moss retired as a Partner, remaining with the Practice as a senior Architect and valued mentor to the architectural staff. He exceeded Jack’s record of 50 years in 2008.
In July 2005, Greg Isaac who had been with the practice for more than 20 years was invited to become a Director of the practice managing the Sydney Office.
John Ward, Hayley Crofts and Wendy Hay were promoted to Associates in 2007 to assist in the leadership of our thriving 50+ staff.
