Alex has a passion for producing buildings with a high level of design excellence. He believes that in order to achieve this, there is a need for architects to have a strong understanding of sustainable design objectives, practices and strategies. It is for this reason that he has pursued his studies in the area of ‘sustainable architecture’.

He has completed an honours thesis on sustainability in the design and construction industry, a masters in sustainable design (honours) and continues to contribute to the architecture community in this area.

Alex’s role as a design architect is informed from the concept stage by his knowledge base in sustainable design, complementing the design process and enhancing the end product. This ensures a total building solution that is energy, water and resource efficient, provides an elevated user comfort level and is cost effective.
