McKenzie Higham Architects (MHA) is very pleased to announce two well-deserved promotions: Chris Evans (left) has been appointed as a Senior Associate and Dipak Patel (right) as an Associate, recognising the significant contributions that both have made to the practice.
Chris has been with MHA since 2015 after returning to NZ from Italy, where he had worked as an architect for over 20 years. Chris was appointed as an Associate in 2017. As the Project Architect on several significant MHA projects, notably Queen Margaret House and BUPA Fergusson Drive, his design, project management and technical skills have been obvious. He is held in high regard by both clients and colleagues for his skill, dedication and professionalism.
Dipak joined us in 2018 having just registered as an Architect. He continues to develop his existing skills as a Project Architect on key education projects, Amesbury School and South Wellington Intermediate School. He combines strong design and project organisation skills with a collaborative team approach, achieving great results. Dipak contributes enormously to a great office culture and has taken a strong leadership role as a mentor to our architectural graduates aspiring to registration. We look forward to his contribution to our Senior Leadership Team
