Robert Wesener receives AIA Fellowship

We are proud to announce that Robert Wesener, Managing Director, was recently elevated to a Fellowship of the Australian Institute of Architects (AIA) at the Queensland Chapter’s 2016 President’s Dinner last month.

AIA Fellowships are granted to architects who have made a significant contribution to the industry and who have achieved a standard of excellence in the profession.

Rob is a self professed “i-dotter and t-crosser”

As a self professed “i-dotter and t-crosser”, Robert is our most capable technical design architect, specialising in retaining the design concept throughout the design development, documentation and construction phases of a project.

“Working out the nuts and bolts is just as important as the original design idea. I like the challenge of taking a design concept and working out a technical solution to pull it all together and bring it to reality.”

It’s this notion of bringing design into reality that Robert loves most about being an architect.

“The satisfaction comes from seeing how our projects can make a difference to the built environment as well as the social landscape – particularly by providing enjoyable and inspirational spaces for people to live, learn and work.”

“I remember the joy of working on the western hospitals in Barcaldine, Emerald and Clermont back in the late 90s. We built really close relationships with hospital staff and spent a lot of time trying to identify their unique model of care, to understand their needs. The hospitals were widely recognised for their architectural and planning solutions, but the highlight for me, was the journey to create well planned, functional and delightful spaces for people who operate in some of the most stressful environments.”
