P&T Architects & Engineers Ltd (P&T, traditional Chinese: 巴馬丹拿; simplified Chinese: 巴马丹拿), formerly known as Palmer and Turner Hong Kong and in Chinese as "Kung Wo Yeung Hong" (公和洋行), is a firm of architects who have designed many landmark buildings in Hong Kong, Shanghai and in southeast Asia.

History[edit]

Based in Hong Kong, P&T claims its roots when architect William Salway set up his own practice on 1 October 1868.[1] Herbert William Bird, a partner of the firm from 1901–28,[2] was also a member of the Legislative Council of Hong Kong. Hong Kong public records suggest that Palmer & Turner arose out of Palmer & Bird – a prominent firm at the time whose senior partner was Lennox Godfrey Bird, younger brother of HW Bird.[3]

P&T, having been working in the region since 1998, opened an office in Dubai in 2004.[4][5]
