Work History

Draughtsman/Architectural Technician

Self employed

Produce steel fabrication and building construction drawings. Make detailed site surveys.
• Produced drawings, paper/polyester templates, CNC cutting code and fabrication drawings for industrial clients, acting as the drawing office for several established companies. My services allowed smaller enterprises to take on more complex work, increase turnover and profits.
• Measured industrial components on site and reverse engineered them into welded fabrications. Often the alternative would be expensive malleable iron castings.
• Accurately developed out flat patterns from bent and folded components. Converted the patterns into CNC cutting code or paper/polyester templates.
• Surveyed and designed domestic house extensions/conversions. Used 3D visualisations to allow the client to fully comprehend the layout, then produced planning/building regulation drawings and secured local authority permission. Created a thoroughly worked over design which saved clients building costs, by avoiding extra remodelling during construction.
