Greg has 30 years drafting experience. Yes 30! Starting out drafting on a drawing board, before shifting onto AutoCAD and finally Revit (for the past 5 years). Still getting a buzz out of producing high quality documentation and trying to educate unruly young Engineers … as well as some Architects.  Partial to the occasional glass of red or good chardonnay and, time permitting, the odd weekend cycle ride or event. Around Taupo this year is the goal!
