DAVENPORT Campbell has evolved from a small interior design practice to one of the largest architectural and interior design firms in Australasia. It has been operating in Asia for more than 10 years and has developed an understanding of the individual culture of countries in the region. Management is flexible so the company can direct the best available team of specialists to a client's project. Teams are drawn from a staff of over 150 professionals. The company is organised into seven market segments, including hospitality, government and health, professional, property and retail. The rest cover resources, finance and corporate and the manufacturing transport technology and communication division (MTTC), directed from Hongkong. It has also established a special industry body, the International Facility Management Association, which encourages building users to consider their facilities as assets that need careful planning and management. The company's industry structure is supported by a range of architectural, design and planning services and products which cater to the needs of each industry segment. Its success in Asia has been seen through the frequency with which projects initiated by its Asian offices lead to further work in Australia. The company's Melbourne office is currently working on projects for Digital and Mobil that are direct results of earlier work for both clients through its Hongkong and Singapore offices. During 1992, Davenport Campbell's Asian offices recorded dramatic growth in business activity, with a record 73 new or completed architecture and interior design projects.
