Specialist end-to-end project management firm Root Projects Australia Pty Ltd was rebranded as Root Partnerships on March 9 to reflect the complex, dynamic and resilient nature of the business.
Root Partnerships has been an active player since 1994 offering specialist advisory and project management services across a broad range of sectors including tertiary education, aviation, civic and cultural, health and ageing, infrastructure and justice in Australia.
Founder and Managing Director Peter Root said what is unique about Root Partnerships is that every project is exceptional in terms of its operation, delivery method or design aspiration. “Root Partnerships is a high-performance business that embraces an increasingly complex world,” he said.
“Our industry and the sectors we work in require a combination of lateral, strategic and critical thinking applied to every project we undertake.
“Increasingly we are dealing with very high financial, technical and contractual complexities, while our projects are demanding exemplar design, stakeholder, communication and consultation outcomes so it becomes a real balancing act,” he said.
Rebranding launch event
To mark the occasion, Root Partnerships held a launch event at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney on 9 March 2017 with keynote speaker Charles Landry, global thought leader on ‘Creative Cities’, and host Liz Ann Macgregor, Director of the Museum of Contemporary Art.
Charles is a pioneer of the connection between culture, creativity and city transformation. An international authority on the use of imagination and creativity in urban change, Charles invented the concept of the ‘creative city’ in the late 1980s. Focusing on how cities can create the enabling conditions for people and organisations to think, plan and act with imagination to solve problems and develop opportunities, the notion has become a global movement and changed the way cities think about their capabilities and resources.
