Scott Constable has been appointed as the new managing director of Ferrier Baudet Architects.
He brings over 10 years of technical design capability having worked on a broad range of project including education and high-rise residential projects. Scott was part of the Ferrier Baudet Architects team from 2008 to 2011 before spending seven years at some of Brisbane largest commercial practices, where he continued to refine his exceptional design and project management skills.
Scott is a solutions and systems focused architect passionate about technology-based design solutions and systems integration and excels at empowering our clients through technology to better understand and participate in their project.
The appointment of Scott Constable as managing director, facilitates a new direction for the company. As Catherine has always been the design leader and client relationship manager within the practice, her role will not greatly change as she steps into the position of Design Director. The shift means that she will be able to focus more on refining the practices’ design principles, meeting with clients and developing her other artistic and community pursuits that have helped grow and shape the practice over the years. Catherine’s ongoing involvement in architectural education, artwork and Women Chief’s of Enterprises as well as her long-term promotion of Women in Architecture are pursuits she will continue.
Roland’s involvement will continue in a mentoring role using his vast experience to promote and educate the team in design, construction and drawing standards. His new part time role will allow him to pursue his own artistic interests. Roland’s mentoring position will foster the education of our graduates’ pathway to registration through his ability to provide exemplary supervision and guidance through design, documentation and construction problem solving.
This next step in the practice’s journey will provide great benefit to our clients. Scott’s knowledge of up to date design and documentation software solutions, his innovative team management skills and his enthusiastic passion about our clients, history and our work will see the company through the next growth phase which has already included a new regional office in Toowoomba. Ferrier Baudet Architects is already experiencing the rewards of Scott’s entrepreneurial skills with a more cohesive and enthusiastic team in place, some exciting new projects and amazing new technology to better provide for our client’s needs.
