Good design like families requires lots of attention to detail and a spark of creativity to make it all work.
Having enjoyed more than forty (40) years of family life Robert Harbottle knows the importance of the details, listening and making good on all commitments. The fun stuff is the creative sparks that turns ordinary to extraordinary. Sometimes it comes easy and others you have to work a little harder, but always its a delight to create something new.
Who We Are
I'm a Queenslander. Brisbane born and breed, but work placements have lead me to the Newcastle Region of NSW, Canberra and Adelaide, SA and after many years I was finally able to come back to Queensland.
Along with Industry Certifications, a Trade Certificate; I have a Diploma in Theology and are finishing a Diploma in Building Design from TAFE Queensland. Finally, I work under accredited Designers where required.
My early work history relates to many successful years in IT both as Sales Manager, General Manager & Business Owner. A sea-change allowed me to take up a position with a Residential & Commercial Builder and there I worked as the Coordinator for Design & Special Projects. Self taught in CAD systems I first purchased a simple CAD software package and quickly upgraded to a BIM (Building Information Modeling) System by Cadsoft - The Envisioneer Construction Suite. Just short of seven years of employment followed with many homes and projects completed. The Principle and Build Supervisor were great teachers and I continue to develop those initial skills I gained.
Today I work as an independent Designer/Draftsman and have completed projects across the Bundaberg Region, North Queensland and Brisbane. In addition, I do project work for a number of successful Builders.
