I am a local Chartered Architect and Project Manager who graduated from the Mackintosh School of Architecture, Glasgow University in 1984 and qualified as a Registered Architect in 1985. I have worked in both Local Authority and Private Practice on various Housing, Community, Social and Educational Projects.
I won a Design Competition to construct a new Registration Office Complex at Gretna in 1989 and lead many major projects and Programmes for DGC. I worked on Orphanage Improvements in Romania in 1993 and 1994 for the”To Romania with Aid” charity organisation.
I became the Architectural Services Manager for DGC until 2004 when I transferred to lead the Strategic Asset Management and Commission all Consultants and Contractors for all DGC Properties until 2014.
I also worked in the Private Sector on a range of projects inclusive of Private Housing, Commercial and Swimming Pools Facilities. Since late 2014 I have also been acting as Project Client for the £2 Million pound Theatre Royal Redevelopment in Dumfries as well as private commissions.
