You were involved in the designer retail store fitout in Sydney. What parts of the project were you specifically involved in and what was it like working on such a different and exciting project?
• We project managed the construction of the staircase balustrading and worked onsite in Sydney for 9 months. I was responsible for ensuring the 6km of American Ash laths were steam bent and correctly positioned as per the designer’s (RDAI) drawings and vision. It was an intricate project that required a lot of creative thought. It was tedious and time consuming and took us away from home for quite a substantial amount of time, but the end result is stunning – it’s a work of art and was totally worth all the hard work.
