I began my career in building and construction by starting a pre-apprenticeship in carpentry at Peel Tafe, where I began my work experience with a local cabinet maker.
I was then offered an apprenticeship by the business and remained there for 5 years. After sustaining a leg injury I moved into a role as an estimator in a commercial aluminium company, learning the intricacies of costing out jobs from small residential work to multi-million dollar school installations.
With my leg better I moved back onto the tools, designing and creating Japanese “Shoji” doors and screens locally. Creating the screens is a time consuming and highly precise skill, but extremely rewarding when you see the final result.
My final taste of employed life in the industry was working for a large scale commercial construction company, where I worked closely with the site manager and company CEO as a site foreman on a $30 million+ private rehabilitation centre.
During this time I studied and completed my diploma in medium rise construction at Builders Training Western Australia before making my own splash in the industry and establishing Elemental Building.
Throughout my career I have made many valuable contacts and trusted professionals. Dealing with some of the best trades in the area, we can tackle your project armed with the knowledge and skill to get it done.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you so much from the INKA Respite Community for all your fantastic work.
We are delighted with the results and can’t recommend Elemental Building highly enough.
In the past we have experienced a lot of difficulty finding reliable, professional tradesmen so finding you has been like a breath of fresh air.
We look forward to using your services again and again.
