Principal Designer - Peter
Office Manager - Julie
Building Designer - Kaylene
We like working together as a team, respecting each other's strengths and encouraging each other to achieve the best design for you.
Peter manages overall, concentrating mainly on site consults, design, checking and liaison.
Julie, assists Peter with proposals and research and as office manager, keeps all the administration side of things in order.
Kaylene is the 'engine' of the office dealing with detailed design and documentation, with Peter assisting as needed.
Liaising with owners and consultants is mainly Peter, but everyone gets involved.
We prefer to work within our team, but occasionally bring in others if the workload exceeds our capacity.
You will most likely meet the whole team, starting with Peter at the initial consult. This is better, as we all get to know you and appreciate your needs.
