“For me, success is when we can find design focused solutions to make the structure part of the architecture, enhancing both the elegance and the sustainability of the space. It’s also enabling our teams to work collaboratively, creatively and with a proper understanding of our client’s needs, and I hope to bring my passion for these things to Hydrock.”
