Richard Gillies is an architect with a broad range of international experience gained over the past seven years and brings a creative problem-solving eye to all aspects of his work. Richard has been involved with school, healthcare, residential, mining, retail, commercial office, and community centre projects scattered between Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and Tanzania. From this experience, gained both through working and travelling, he has developed a growing interest in urban design issues and regional building practices.
His most recent experience with Brook McIlroy includes leading the contract administration of the Westgate Highschool renovation project. Prior to joining Brook McIlroy, his work with Architectus of New Zealand included documentation and general review for a number of commercial and mixed-use developments, each with construction budgets over $50 million.
