Founder and Director
We help create beautiful environments that remain true to the vision of the architects and designers that we collaborate with. Each new project is met with vigour, drawing upon our combined years of expertise, our meticulous craftsmanship and our unique appreciation of the design and construction process. We are known for our ability to meet any challenge, and to provide solutions. We have achieved this by developing a process that enables collaboration and participation with our clients, our team and consultants that promotes analytical and critical thinking throughout every stage of the process. We want to win work on the strength and quality of our projects and the expertise with which we deliver them by. We have delivered high-specification architectural joinery for a wide range of sectors including workplace, hospitality and retail. We are based in Brisbane, with the capability to operate on a national scale, working with high-profile design practices and constructors throughout Australia.
I have been a master cabinet maker for over 25 years, with a variety of roles in the joinery, manufacturing and construction industries. In 2008 I founded Arris Projects Pty Ltd, a specialist joinery and fit-out company based in Brisbane. Our clients are mainly top tier design firms, blue chip corporates, and leading professional services firms (lawyers, accountants etc.). As Director, I have a hands-on role in the company, and oversee the planning and delivery of all our projects—taking complex, conceptual designs and translating them into highly detailed, customised creations which are built in our dedicated factory. I ensure all of our work is completed to the level of precision craftsmanship required by our clients. Green Credentials As part of this commitment to quality and craftsmanship, Arris Projects is privileged to be one of only two Queensland companies certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) to manufacture and supply FSC certified timber products for our clients. FSC certified timber is grown and processed according to strict environmental and social standards. All timber has a clear chain of custody which monitors the journey of the raw material to the end product, with the aim of reducing deforestation in sensitive environmental areas and animal habitats. Clients wishing to obtain a Green Star rating for their building from the Green Building Council Australia (GBCA) can use FSC certified timber as one way to accrue additional points towards Green Star certification. I work directly with clients and architects to manage the whole FSC certified timber process—from planning which materials to use, to sourcing the raw timber from local and international accredited forests and then building the products to specification in our factory.
