Jim enjoys taking an architectural vision and turning it into a logical structure that can be built, but still retains the original design intent. Jim’s recent catalogue of work includes the impressive Saffire Freycinet Resort, the IXL Atrium and the Forestry Tasmania Centre, all of which illustrate his talents. He also loves a big shed.

One of the founding directors of Gandy and Roberts, Jim is highly regarded in engineering and architectural circles in Tasmania. He is the only engineer ever to have been awarded the prestigious President’s Prize by the Australian Institute of Architects. Jim continues his work with the company as a consultant.

Over the past forty years, Jim has helped bring to life some of Tasmania’s most recognisable architectural structures. He is renowned for his ability to work with architects and builders to find innovative, yet practical, engineering solutions.
