Our aim is to create & deliver commercial spaces with a level of design & commercial outcomes that are the envy of others. We are re-inventing how the best results are archived, and we want you to have the same commercial advantages and successful outcome that our current clients have experienced through our unique offering of the design and contract model. Where previously an architectural firm would need to be considered for any great design and then a fortune spent on bringing it to life, our team has re-invented what is possible outside of the traditional space and are delivering those designer spaces in a new way with a fresh outcome for all stakeholders.
What do you get when you cross a former naturopath, a real estate agent, a police officer, a builder and a frustrated designer (no joke)…well you get our founding member and the driving force behind TFS and what makes us so different. A people-caring, client-focussed, detail-fanatic who drives the team crazy at times with his quest for
perfection and his eye for detail (especially on defect day…defects…what are they).
Along with this array of life experience, it is his previous 15 years in office fitouts that have confirmed his calling and passions.
As our Design Manager and Estimator he often comes up with the big ideas and has constant high-level input into the designs. He knows what it takes and what it costs to design and deliver the best projects and has been responsible for overseeing and developing our product since our inception.
He is so committed to the final outcome of every project that he and Lisa are usually the ones dressing the suites at the end of the project ready for Leasing – you don’t see too many owners doing that!
Seeing what amazing things our designers come up with and watching them become reality on site
