OUR CAPABILITIES

KYAL THORNTON CAPABILITY STATEMENT

INTRODUCTION

Hi I’m Kyal Thornton, thank you for taking the time learn more about my business.  I have extensive experience in all project sizes learnt from over 18 years in the building industry, during that time I have been fortunate enough to lead Design & Drafting departments for Villawold Homes, Halcyon Construction, Samda Developments and Faculty of Thinking Design studio.  I have also worked for some of Australia’s leading Architectural firms on icon award wining buildings ranging from multi-million dollar homes, to High rises, Commercial / Retail / Hospitality / Industrial buildings, Entertainment Centres, and Zoo enclosures. Before changing careers into Architecture I worked as a professional chef for 10years.

In 2018 I went out on my own and formed my own business. Since then I’ve  worked with many of my previous employers on a multiple array of projects, and been engaged by many new clients on a variety of architectural projects. For 6 years I was also co-franchisee for large coffee shop with an annual turnover of over a million dollars.

I understand most of the challenges facing my clients, and I take a strategic approach to ensure long term relationships and a high quality of project delivery.
