Drafting team manager with 6 years structural engineering, 12 years drafting and 2 years on-site construction experience. I have worked in lead CAD design roles at SMEC New Zealand and AECOM as well as in the hydro-power and power distribution sectors.
My role is multi-faceted and involves high-level project initiation, input into execution plans, workflows and BIM modelling, working alongside the lead engineer and project director.
I look after the day-to-day management of resources and the quality aspects of drafting and I am involved in hands on project modelling: offering high level assistance and helping out where required.
I enjoy the accuracy and precision of drafting, which I view as a craft. It’s about thinking about how things fit together/spatial arrangements and conveying this information in a clear and concise manner.
You will benefit from my strong attention to detail and problem-solving abilities. I visualise details and identify possible interface issues, proactively highlight these and work with other project stakeholders to overcome them.
My structural engineering background means that I understand structural systems and load paths and I have a good awareness of what is structurally critical and what is less important. Combining this with my considerable drafting experience ensures that I can implement the Engineer’s design considerations into the structural documentation with clarity.
