As a former Tasmanian Park Ranger of 19 years I have built up experience and training with involvement in conservation works on the West Coast (Co-ordinator of Community Huts Program), Lake St Clair and Maria Island. I have undergone training in the interpretation and execution of Conservation Plans and I have assisted setting up and managing works by other specialist building practitioners. Over the past 11 years I have been a fully accredited builder, specialising in smaller works such as extensions, decks and internal renovations such as removal of walls, building and renovating bathrooms and the installation of kitchens. I have built up a talented and reliable group of other trades persons who I can call on as required. I believe that I can bring to any conservation works, a thorough understanding of the processes involved, and the ability to work with conservation practitioners using their own language and established principles and practices.
