Experienced in Architectural design and Technical detailing led to the advancement through the ranks from Architectural Technologist to Senior Design Manager and recently to Senior Project Manager Status. Steered the SSH site design team for the delivery (on time) of The Kuwait Cultural Centre for the Emir of Kuwait and received personal thanks from the CEO, Team and Owners. Within 8 months of working with SSH achieved Project Manager status, responsible for liaising between the site team and the Main Contractor.

Working closely with the BIM Manager to integrate the latest information produced in Revit.
My influential years were spent working within the local city councils architectural, planning, Conservation and Landscape depts. With a natural ability to adapt and eagerness to learn from old school architects gave me the knowledge and confidence to develop techniques in detailing and drawing. This eventually led to the use of computer aided design such as Micro station and eventually AutoCAD and now fully proficient. In 1995 joined ATKINS which proved to be a major step into the exposure for working within a large-scale multidisciplinary firm. With a keen attention to detail and extensive knowledge gained by working within various departments proved to be an asset. Rose quickly in the ranks to become Project leader on various projects and having a proactive nature, to generate a positive working environment which in turn helped to reduce design errors and maximise margin through collaborative approach. Has a unique ability to manage people and gain their trust which eventually led to exposure to design management.
