  • What experience, skills, qualifications or training do you have to make you the right person for the job?

    Project management/design. Leading Carpenter/Joiner.


    Various renovations to date, Perth City, Ferrar St, Wasley St: both 1900’s to 1930;s dwellings. (2011 to Present)  Budgets: $500,000 and $165,000.
    — Restore/Conservation work to all aspects of dwellings, generally bettering what was there with specific heritage classifications back to today’s Australian Standards.
    — Project management of both jobs, produce working schedules, supervise all trades. Installation of very large verandah’s, right through to colonial skirting, gyprock and concrete works, etc.

    1: Bagot Road, Subiaco (2008 to 2010)  Budget: $550,000.
    — Complete restoration of dwelling, inside and out. Front and original portion of house was built around 1890’s. Complete renovation/restoration to existing portion of house and again a very extensive renovation/build to a two-story portion of house. I incorporated a modern aspect which we see a lot today very successfully to existing dwelling. A job I will never forget.

    2: PCYC Progress Hall, Paget St, Hilton(2007 to 2008)  Budget: $3M.
    — On this particular job I was recommended by architect, Bernard Seeber of High St, Fremantle, as a specialist heritage carpenter. I had a spate budget on various aspects of the job. Initially tendering job, but as it progressed so did my scope of works. Installation of, new replicated double hung windows and frames. Installation of several large jarrah door frames and specially designed fire doors, with elaborate door furniture. Install new jarrah whether boards, repair very large stage doors, repair flooring and much more.

    3: TUKURUA, Rosendo St, Cottesloe (2002 to 2006)  Budget: $4M.
    — Without question the most memorable job of my entire career, possibly one of the most iconic dwellings in Perth. The dedication and shear expense, monetary wise, is due to the owner Ted Smith. Possible one of the biggest verandah’s standing in Perth today, everyone seems to know of this water side mansion and is majestic presence. Verandah cost: $ 200,000 to $230,000, right through to things that are to most people as a mind boggling task. This particular restoration plays a huge significance to the tradesmen I am today and will always be close to my heart. (NOTE: I can supply hundreds of photographs of this particular job alone).

    4: TIMARU, 66 Forrest St, Cottesloe (2000 to 2002)  Budget: $1M.
    This dwelling again is hugely significant to Perth and is very historic in its provenance. John Forrest was the original owner of Timaru 100 years ago. Again we were very lucky to have a huge budget and a passionate client whose goal was to ensure that it was restored back to its former glory. 100% of this dwelling was restored & renovated and I would say the introduction to my fascination with all heritage structures to antiques and collectables.

    PLEASE NOTE: The above mentioned projects are listed, as they were all quiet large construction projects. They make up, what is to be, a satisfying, pleasing and general sense of achievement, era of my professional working career.

    I have been involved in many other projects, before and in-between, these large jobs. All projects, that I have been lucky to be apart off, have shape who and what I strive/aim for today. One must treat every job as respectful, with integrity and as important as any other job, whether it is 5million or 5 thousand dollars in budget.

    NOTE: If required, I can supply many photos of my work over the years, as I document as much as possible on every project I undertake. E.g. Hand working sketches of plans/elevations, all hand/computer written quantities for materials, schedules, etc.
