Brendan Gaffney

Director

Brendan graduated architecture with first class honours in 1990 – receiving the Karl and Gertrude Langer Memorial Prize for Architectural Drawing and the John Simpson Book Prize for Technology in Design from Queensland University. 

He joined COX in 1997 after working with Allan Lovel Marquis-Kyle on the awarded Rockhampton Roundhouse and with Daryl Jackson Architects. He was appointed a Director of COX in 2007.  

Brendan is the Brisbane studio’s Director of residential projects – a position created to respond to Queensland’s significant growth.  He has overseen large urban renewal developments including Hamilton Harbour, Allisee on the Gold Coast and Norman Park.  

Brendan supports teams in our North Queensland projects and has been responsible for the Cairns Reef Fleet Terminal, Cairns Esplanade and the William McCormack Government office building in Cairns – the first commercial building in Australia to be rated AGBRS 5 Star.  

Brendan was project leader for COX’s competition winning Brisbane Ferry Terminals following the 2011 Brisbane floods.
