Boris de Bouck
Boris achieved his carpentry apprenticeship in France, and then spent six years involved in a timber building industry training programme. Following this tenure, he worked for three years in an engineering consultancy where he designed a variety of timber structures from residential houses to commercial buildings. The consultancy had an association with a factory producing prefabricated houses, so Boris worked closely with the factory to have these designs produced using panelised technology.
Moving to Christchurch, he spent a year as a builder working on a variety of sites, whilst also analysing and studying the New Zealand Building Code.
Boris’ experience and training has given him a thorough understanding of timber construction utilising both conventional building practises and new technology.
