Peddle Thorp Architects

During my career so far I have worked in the health and education sectors on projects ranging from early childhood centres, primary & secondary schools (public & private), tertiary education facilities to a hospital refurbishment. These projects involved structural surveying and documentation of subsequent strengthening, complete new builds and re purposing of existing building stock.

Commercially, my portfolio of work includes the national role out of a fitness centre franchise throughout New Zealand, the heritage restoration of an airport, planning & documentation of state wide service centres and fast food chain restaurant spaces, and various other office and retail buildings and fit outs.

A generous share of my experience in Melbourne has centred on the design and documentation of large-scale, multi-storey mixed use residential projects in the greater Melbourne area. My role in these projects also branched off into preparation of the marketing materials and lead interior designer. My Melbourne experience has also exposed me to involvement in the the design and documentation of an aquarium in China.

My current role is within the sports and leisure team where we are working on multiple aquatic and sporting centres within Australia and internationally. The sheer number of projects managed within our team means that on a daily basis my role can vary from preparation of concept presentations for various stakeholders and planning documentation, to liaising with consultants in relation to documentation, to aspects of contract administration on more advanced projects.
