KJB Consulting Engineers & Architects, (2003 - 2009) - experience involved working closely with practice principal, developing concepts from sketch design/ client approval and delivering to an architectural team to develop through the design/ planning process to tender and construction stage. Negotiating efficient contractor appointments on projects was instrumental in achieving a harmonious delivery of projects at site operations stage where careful control of costs, building details and finishes culminated in exceptional turn-key products. Liaising with qualified in-house civil & structural engineering and fire consultants provided a unique and diverse platform to reconcile any design issues affecting the development of any project, resulting in a seamless delivery of projects at all times.
Projects ranged from one-off homes, commercial & retail units to large scale multi-unit housing and apartment schemes. A sample of some of the projects are illustrated below:
