After Graduating from Victoria University of Wellington with a Bachelor of Architecture in 2001, Chris initially started working for a small New Zealand architectural firm. It was while working here that Chris started using AutoCAD Architecture 3.3, and extended his studies completing a Bachelor of Information Technology in 2003 finding a particular talent for programming.
Throughout his career, Chris has continued to develop his 3D modelling skills, using AutoCAD Architecture 2011 in a large London Healthcare Practice as a BIM Manager, and towards the end of his tenure in London Chris started introducing Revit into the Practice. In early 2011, Chris made the move to a Melbourne firm as a BIM Manager to roll out Revit.
Throughout his time as both a CAD Technician and BIM Manager, Chris has always searched for the most effective and efficient procedures to complete any given task. His current knowledge of architectural practice ensures that he is well aware of the existing gaps in workflows to produce documentation.
This is where a unique foundation in both architecture and programming allows Chris and Kiwi Codes to produce essential Revit API Solutions for clients worldwide.
