So long, and Thanks for all the fish

Dear Clients, Colleagues and Friends,

It is with great regret that the Directors and Shareholders of JCY advise that the company has been placed into Creditors Voluntary Liquidation.  Melissa Human and Simon Theobald of PPB Advisory were appointed joint liquidators on 4 December 2017.  The liquidators are conducting an urgent assessment of the business and will contact clients individually over the next 24 hours.

Originally established in 1986, renamed Jones Coulter Young in 1995 and ultimately JCY Architects and Urban Designers, the practice has created an outstanding body of work founded on a dynamic culture of research, collaboration, inventiveness and excellence.  We have been operating as JCY for 22 YEARS.

The scope of our work has been as varied as our clients, resulting in an exciting and diverse portfolio of projects reflecting our knowledge and desire to express the uniqueness of people, environment and vision.  A keen interest in design excellence, creativity, continual learning, and the building of knowledge, experiencing our city and country and a strong desire to contribute by making great sustainable and livable places and building projects has driven an overall complement of 230 past and present staff over the years.

We pay tribute to founding and past Directors and Shareholders, and thank them as well as current Directors and Shareholders for their exceptional leadership and we thank our staff for their dedication to the exceptional projects we have completed over the years.

Unfortunately, delays to current projects and our inability to secure sufficient work due to the current severely depressed economic climate, JCY has found itself under significant financial pressure in recent months, which has compounded losses made on the Perth Children’s Hospital and despite having a future pipeline of work we are not financially able to continue.

We will work closely with the liquidators and we will endeavour to work with you, our clients and colleagues, to ensure, as best as we are able, a continuation of our services and the smooth transition of projects through this process.

Whist this is a very sad time for us, we would sincerely like to thank all who have been clients, colleagues and friends with JCY and our dedicated and talented staff over the years and wish all a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

We look forward to advising everyone of some good news soon.  Included herewith is imagery showing a cross section of our projects over the years.  For now at least, in the words of Douglas Adams, ‘So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish”
