Since 2009, when the practice completed Murray Grove/Stadthaus, a nine storey apartment block, which was the first use of CLT in a building of this height, Anthony has pioneered the adoption of this material as a viable, sustainable alternative to energy intensive materials such as concrete and steel. As a result of which CLT is now in wide use across a range of building types and scales.

Anthony is a passionate advocate of developing off-site, DfMA solutions to solve systemic problems in building delivery. Improving construction outcomes through the greater collaboration between building designers and manufacturers, creating high quality, long lasting buildings that are fit to use.
