The use of an interlocking element between the two shapes represents the collaboration and partnership between SFA and various entities.

SFA consists of a multidisciplinary team committed to a work environment conducive to professional development, innovation, cross-boundary exchange and interdisciplinary co-operation so as to be a cohesive organisation that is able to achieve its mission effectively.
