Ernest Girardi
Managing Director  (Melbourne, VIC)

Ernest is the Managing Director of STH and has developed an exemplary reputation in healthcare project delivery stemming from his “hands-on” approach. The key to Ernest’s success lies in his comprehensive project establishment methodology. He takes a strategic project view and applies his intuitive understanding of the holistic needs of each project.

Ernest brings to each project an ability to resolve complex master planning and health facility planning challenges. This capacity is informed by an ability to develop effective relationships with project stakeholders, as diverse as authorities, administrating bodies and departmental planning teams. This said, Ernest’s work is informed by a desire to enhance the human experience, whilst providing a work-place environment that is safe and efficient.

His architecture is best described as environmental, constantly seeking and testing evidence that will inform the creation of a healthcare environment that is sustainable both in its urban context as well as in the operational setting.

This capacity is underpinned by the fact that Ernest is a technically proficient architect with a solid grounding in build ability and the need to deliver health facility project outcomes within ever increasing financial constraints.
