Daren started his working life in architecture and is an accomplished architectural technician which has been a good foundation for career progression into design, surveying, and project management roles in the fields of residential and commercial construction, healthcare, transportation, and telecommunications which included large data centres across Europe and only interrupted by some humanitarian work in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Having worked for companies such as Balfour Beatty, London Underground, TfL, Capita, and the NHS on projects such as Canary Wharf, Crossrail, PFI Hospitals and the London Congestion Charge, Daren has amassed a wealth of knowledge and experience that is put to good use on a daily basis.
Joining us in 2007, Daren has worked for AK Design as a Senior Architectural Technician in a design and job running role and is a key member of our design team on award winning projects. Taking time out to work for Reliance Industries in India and the UK’s largest housebuilders and developers, Daren has re-joined AK Design with renewed vigour, a new perspective on working practices and experience in 3D laser scanning and BIM systems.
