Not everyone knows what these names mean but being able to draft on all of them means you have a completely comprehensive skill set.
A skill set held by Mr Darren Howe.

In fact, his 32-year resume reads like a job functions list for the carpentry and joinery arenas…

Carpenter/Joiner building houses, multistorey buildings and specialty factories.

Site Fitter/Installer. Machine Shop Manager. Factory Foreman. Production Manager.

Initially driven by a need to hand draft architectural drawings for production as part of his tasks as a Production Manager, Darren was introduced to AUTOCAD 19 years ago. And, as they say, that was all she wrote! Darren quickly moved into this specialized field.

With his comprehensive skills across multiple drafting platforms, it is little wonder Darren is the “go to specialist” for extremely complex designs for high end projects, especially shopfronts and joinery.

Becoming part of the PQI Group 6 years ago, with his deep appreciation for almost every key role in the process, Darren has a passion for and leads the charge for absolute excellence in drafting such that the manufacturing, installation and build processes go smoothly.

On his down time, Darren loves volunteering as the bar manager at his local Rugby League football club, watching Rugby League & motor racing, making things with timber (of course!), working on cars & doing whatever his wife & kids tell him to do!
