Now as a Design Team member at Brenkman & Company, he creates Revit drawings for HVAC and plumbing systems for clients. Since starting with the company, his highlight has been the Big O project, as he explains:
“Big O was one of my favorites…. Because it is a tire place and there was a lot of other stuff, we had to look at which was different from what we normally do…like the air space…it had a lot of variety.”
When questioned about the reason for joining Brenkman & Company, his reply was.
“I started working for a friend of mine, and things did not work out between the two of us and Henk gave me the offer to start working with him as well. I enjoy the hours that I work, I know that’s a strange thing to say, but I’m a person that likes staying up late at night…. you guys are in America…and that’s what makes it quite fun for me. The other thing is I can work from home, and don’t have to go to the office…. I always enjoyed drawings, that’s another reason why enjoyed this work as well.”
