Julian is a highly motivated and experienced member of the Petro Builders team. Hailing from New Zealand, over the past 16 years Julian has been fortunate to work on significant architectural homes from inception to completion. Julian’s input and proficiency has proven invaluable in solving problems in complex projects. Julian’s contribution and leadership have been critical to the success of both Westlake and Simla, where he worked alongside Stefan as his 2IC. Julian’s consistent application of procedure, method and quality across the spectrum of work, from steel fixing and concrete to detailed timber finishes, is a benchmark for the quality associated with Petro Builders. He now works as the company's office manager.
Over years of on-site work Julian has developed an invaluable rapport with all of the Petro Builders staff and sub-contractors, giving him a unique ability to balance the demands of all stakeholders and ensure the successful execution of complex projects.
Outside of work Julian created a building calculator application for iOS that was released on iTunes in 2012. In 2013 became the founder and editor of the Australian Builder magazine with support from Master Builders and the Australian Institute of Architects. Currently, he is working on a décor start-up called Scandiluxe, designing and creating simple timber-based home décor and fittings.
Julian is Nick’s sporting adversary and the two have enjoyed a healthy competitive and sporting relationship over the past eight years. Rumour has it that Julian has actually beaten Nick in a 100 metre sprint wearing work boots.
