Design has the unique and important ability to create a dramatic improvement in our communities and alter quality of life; the way we move and function. To achieve this goal, I believe that good design should also be efficient design. I think buildings should be high-performing, have endurance, and incorporate good sustainability and wellness practices wherever possible.
My strength lies in project management, team co-ordination, and contract administration. And my significant property industry experience has developed my skills as an architect and a strategic advisor to clients, consultants, and communities.
It’s incredibly rewarding to help our communities thrive through design, and I am hugely motivated by the shift towards wellness in design. The pace of change is rapidly increasing, and I enjoy reading research studies and developing my knowledge across such a contributive topic.
Ignite Principal Jeremy Whelan says “these talented designers are the next generation of leaders at Ignite. They’ve played an influential role in our development to date, and are huge contributors to the ongoing success of our projects. I know Ignite will continue to flourish through their leadership.”
Over Ignite’s 35-year history, we have continued to expand our team to deliver projects across a range of industry and regional markets. Following this continued growth, Ignite is proud to announce the promotion of five Associate Directors to the newly established ‘Sector Lead’ position, with three Directors also now named as Principals.
