Fitz.Gerald & Associates Architects was established in late
1997 as Fitz.Gerald Finlay-Mulligan by Orla Fitz.Gerald and
Peter Finlay-Mulligan. In 2003 a five year strategic plan was
developed for the practice by its Directors. The implementation
of this plan saw Peter Finlay-Mulligan de-vest himself of his
interest in the company to practice as a sole trader. Having
developed a strong client base and a reputation for delivering
projects on time and to budget, the Directors were aware of the
opportunity for the practice to grow. In July 2003, now trading
as Fitz.Gerald & Associates Architects, the practice relocated
from Blackrock, Co. Dublin to Dublin City Centre – a move
calculated to raise the company’s profile and support growth.
Since relocating manpower has more than doubled, growth
which is also of course reflected in the company’s turnover.
Clients with whom the practice had long standing relationships
have remained loyal to the practice with repeat commissions
and work gained through personal recommendation from
existing clients accounting for a significant proportion of the
practice’s new business.
