3. Work Experience / Skills
During my career, I have had extensive experience in design, documentation, administration, supervision and all

include factories (approx. 30 factories completed in South Africa) shopping centres, schools, housing, public and
The experience gained in the USA includes the design and project management of the two Readiness centers for
the West Virginia National Guard.
I have an interest in agricultural architecture, and I gained experience in the design of the Döhne Agricultural
Research Station and the Fort Cox College of Agriculture in South Africa.
The experience gained on the 'Sky City" casino project gave me experience on hotels, car parks and commercial
facilities. This project was one of the largest built in New Zealand and the time constraints were such that it also
had the record for the fastest execution.
In all the projects I have worked on, I have experience in managing teams of professionals, technicians and
contractors and it has been a specific interest of mine to develop and apply effective management,
documentation and resource systems.

developed my knowledge of the management of information technology and computing/CAD resources in a large
establishment. I have also been involved in the development of online computer training resources and
The subject of my Master of Design Management dissertation deals with ‘Knowledge Management in the
Architectural Profession’ and I have researched the processes involved intensively. I believe that the experience
gained has made me more proficient in communication, project and data management for architectural projects.
A direct result of this has been the development of a ‘Procedural manual’ which has become an essential tool at
ETB Architects – including project templates, CAD details etc.
My computing skills include the use of the full range of Microsoft Office programs, Microsoft Project, AutoCAD
