Junior Structural Engineer with over two years’ experience. I have designed a wide variety of structures ranging from specialist Rib-Raft foundations through to terraced housing and Light Gauge steel portal frames. I have also conducted a number of detailed seismic assessments of structures.
I love engineering because I get paid to solve puzzles. Engineering is another lens through which to look at the world and I enjoy its multi-faceted nature from concept design, sketching and detailing through to talking to clients and being on-site.
It’s a pleasure to work with different clients from home and business owners through to developers, as well as consultants and contractors to turn ideas into a physical product.
I have extensive experience in Internal commercial fitouts and alterations to existing structures. Designs included have been suspended ceilings, partition wall & bulkhead restraints; as well as the restraint of services & architectural features. I have up to date and an in-depth knowledge in modern seismic fitout systems including RONDO, Unistrut, Tracklok & Gridlok systems as well as creating bespoke specific engineering solutions.
You can expect me to simplify problems and keep my designs simple to understand and build. I won’t over-engineer structures. My preference is to meet upfront to understand clients’ desires, limitations and budget and to brainstorm ideas. You’ll find me straight-talking and punctual - I stick to client timeframes.
Project highlights include:
Developing a concept design for a seven-storey apartment building in Cheshire Street. The structure consisted of concrete shear walls and steel gravity frames.
Internal Fit outs for several restaurants and bars in the new Westfield Newmarket development Including Something and Social and New York Grill.
Undertaking a detailed seismic analysis on the old Council chambers on New North Road. These are part of Auckland’s heritage and it’s fulfilling to think I am playing a part in helping to preserve these for others to enjoy.
Traveling across New Zealand completing condition assessments and providing repair/ maintenance schemes for the north Island’s mobile infrastructure. I have worked with rigging crews from Downer, Broad Spectrum and Infratell serving clients including Spark, Vodaphone and Two Degrees.
