Planning | Building Reg Drawings

John works on an Apple iMac which is equipped with PowerCadd9.8 software to produce drawings to A3 size only, which is big enough for the size of projects he carries out.
Since the outbreak of corona virus John has worked from home and he has found it more convenient so we have closed the shop in Penryn.

Before joining SeaDogs John spent many years prior to 2010 working as a building designer and technician with PBWC Architects in St Ives and will be continuing this work for a while yet.
He has a passionate interest in environmentally friendly design issues, alternative forms of energy and energy conservation. He has a specialist knowledge of timber frame design including traditional green oak construction.

Whilst he does not profess to be a qualified architect he has an Open University degree in Environmental Science and Geography and has been a member of the Association of Environment Conscious Building and the Alternative Technology Association for many years.
