JOB: Senior Architectural Technician, Peddle Thorp
QUALIFICATION: National Diploma in Architectural Technology
"I love the day-to-day challenge of my role. There is always something new to learn and I am becoming more design conscious working alongside great architects. I have a lot of responsibility as a technician, as much as a project architect on some large jobs. When I do good work, word travels fast and Ive learned that you dont have to be a famous architect to be recognised in this industry. I'm particularly proud of my work on the Sofitel Auckland Viaduct Harbour and Britomart East Building, projects that I worked on from concept design through to build completion.
My qualification prepared me really well to be the conduit between designer and builder a very important role especially in commercial architecture. My qualification has also taken me overseas to work in the UK, and more recently to work on projects in Papua New Guinea."
