Senior Production Draftsman

Porter Davis Homes
— on Going Senior Production Draftsman Over the past 7 years I've been an integral part of the Residential production team as a draftsman for Porter Davis Homes. My daily tasks include creating and modifying working Drawings for residential constructions. To enable me to complete this i must liaise with external contractors for 6 star requirements and engineering allowing me to manage timelines and ensure my target is achieved. All drawings include color specifications, cabinetry designs, and also Tender documentation. Each design has its own nuances which ensures that i am detail driven and manage my time effectively to ensure each job is of a high quality. My role requires a large mount of communication between contractors, Building coordinators, and management which ensure i'm an effective communicator. It has enabled me to analyse and assess all manner of design alterations and find a optimum solution for the client and our business. A particularly important aspect of this for me has been to increase my knowledge base and job specific solutions. I'm analytical by nature, this armed with a natural thirst for knowledge has led me to become an asset to my team and respected resource for management to ensure i can pass on my knowledge to the younger staff from all corners of the business.
