Previously, as an Associate Director at a London based engineering consultants, David Dexter Associates, his main focus was providing specialist design services to leading architectural practices. This knowledge and experience of working with ETFE has meant that he has been able to develop and explore opportunities in this new cladding system. Toby also has significant experience in timber design, particularly gridshells and other geometric forms that provide innovative structurally efficient designs, being tried now in New Zealand.
He is able to combine creative and sustainable design with an understanding of cladding systems, to aid with exploring enhanced energy efficiency and building performance.
Bryan has extensive experience leading multidiscipline aquatic design teams, and has developed an understanding of the complexities involved and the collaborative solutions required to achieve high performance, efficient, well integrated facilities responding to the unique and challenging environmental conditions & user requirements to establish memorable community assets. He brings a proven ability to deliver across a broad spectrum of facilities, from provincial upgrades through to iconic, innovative landmark centres.
A structural engineer by training, his design skills has been nationally recognised with one of his projects, the Hastings Opera House, winning an ACENZ Merit Award.
As a project architect David has skills in managing projects alongside the client, stakeholders, consultants and contractors to ensure project deliverables and timeframes are achieved. His experience coordinating larger projects is formed around promoting a shared culture of collaboration to achieve project goals.
David has over ten years of experience coordinating in BIM environments (Revit). Most recently One Parramatta Square was one of the first projects in Australia to utilise the BIM 360 glue platform for coordination between the design team and subcontractors.
