I am an Architect with over 30 years’ experience. I trained at Robert Gordon University and completed my professional qualifications in 1990. Since graduating I have amassed extensive and diverse professional experience across a wide range and scale of project types.
This included time at E.C Riach in Glasgow where I was involved in tenement rehabilitation; ARA Architects in Exmouth, Devon where the work involved housing and commercial projects relating to the tourist industry; and the offices of Sasha Ivanovich and Interpacific Consultants in Western Australia where the work ranged from hotel work to bespoke housing to multi-billion dollar projects in developing China. Finally In 1996 I returned to my home country and became a partner in a busy Aberdeenshire based practice gaining very good local experience of all types of work, eventually becoming a sole practitioner in 2011.
Private new-build housing and home extensions consist of 90% of my work. As increasing pressure is placed upon us to increase the efficiency of the buildings we live in. I’ve gained good experience in providing very eco-friendly housing and have earned an Aberdeenshire Council Design Award in the “Sustainability” category for a new private house.
My Non-domestic portfolio consists of agricultural buildings, office buildings, Car maintenance workshop, Café’s, Vets surgeries and I have been lucky enough to do refurb and up-grade work to 6 Community Halls around the North East of Scotland.
I believe in treating any size of project with equal importance and like to think I provide a full and friendly service. I am able to do all local authority work, ranging from Planning applications, Building Warrant applications and Listed Building Consents. My services can then continues to obtaining tenders and seeing the project through to completion, ensuring a high standard of construction. I will also ensure you have all the official paperwork you require for your building file.
If you are thinking of starting a project, or even just a feasibility study, please get in touch for a free and friendly chat.
