Graphic Communication

Ability to generate quick sketches to communicate important construction details in the field. Saves client time and money. Laborers confident they are not doing something wrong.


Builder of high end condo units wants to install planting plan with unskilled labor. Using unskilled labor will save money but will not guarantee a stable planting that will stay healthy. I was hired to train the workers and oversee the installation Condo builder saved money. Plants were installed correctly. Design intent Stayed in tact.

Identifying design flaws in the planning stages of a project

  As a member of the Amesbury Conservation Committee a Subdivision plan was submitted for approval, I was able to quickly Identify problems and recommend solutions instantaneously. My recommendations allowed the builder to gain faster approval and build a better residence than the early presentation. The town has a conforming lot that will prosper. The town gets a conforming lot that will provide property taxes. Builder will have a much more marketable property for sale.
