MEET OUR HONG KONG REGIONAL LEADERS
In Hong Kong we have partnerships with our clients while working alongside some of the most talented and experienced architects and engineers in Asia.
With an engineering background, my experience has focused primarily on façade engineering and developing design knowledge across a vast array of façade systems and materials. This has included working on complex geometry resolution, access and maintenance and, more recently, lighting and ESD disciplines.
Now I have the privilege of leading this talented Hong Kong team as we focus on delivering design-led, technical and comprehensive solutions to our clients. I would like to introduce them to you here and, over the coming months, I look forward to catching up and introducing you in person.
