I am a Registered Building Practitioner, member of the Building Design Association of Victoria (BDAV) and hold a Diploma of Building Design and Drafting. In addition to this I attend various Continuing Professional Development (CPD) seminars.
I retain professional indemnity and public liability insurance with Honan Insurance Brokers.
COLLABORATION IS A STONG FOCUS FOR ME ON BOTH SKATEPARK AND BUILDING DESIGNS AND I ALWAYS OFFER INDEPENDENT PROFESSIONAL ADVICE ON THE BEST OUTCOME FOR EACH PROJECT.
I provide a full range of design and drafting services and will guide you through the process to let you know what information is relevant for your project.
Being involved in the skateboarding community for nearly thirty years has allowed me to combine my formal drafting skills and skateboarding knowledge to create some of the most exciting and unique skateparks around the world. This combination makes it possible for the intricate details of skateboarding and skatepark design to be translated into clear construction plans that satisfy government requirements and are useful in the hands of experienced contractors.
The process of meeting with local skaters, government and community representatives to get the initial ideas for the skatepark, developing designs, construction drawings, being on site during construction and then finally rolling on the finished product never loses its impact. I always feel fortunate to be part of something that delivers so much joy to so many people.
I AM DRIVEN TO KEEP CREATING FUN, CHALLENGING AND FUNCTIONAL SKATEPARKS; THESE ARE MY CORE PRINCIPLES IN SKATEPARK DESIGN.
As a fully qualified Building Designer I can create new homes, extensions, renovations, unit developments, shop fit outs and warehouse conversions.
In recent years I have focused on domestic renovations and extensions, as they offer fantastic opportunities to connect with people and develop their ideal home. It also provides the chance to create something new and exciting from an existing building that may have served its original purpose and would otherwise be demolished.
I enjoy working with people who love where they live and want to improve their home to suit their changing lifestyle and community.
I WILL WORK CLOSELY WITH YOU TO CREATE A DESIGN FROM YOUR INITIAL IDEAS, SKETCHES OR PHOTOS THAT TAKES YOU FROM HOW YOU'RE LIVING NOW, TO HOW YOU WANT TO LIVE IN THE FUTURE.
Exploring the details and possibilities with you through this process is an amazing experience.
