Hi, I am Adrian... your Sketchup Trainer
I am a registered architect in Victoria and Western Australia who has been running his own architecture firm, Adrian Price Architect, for some number of years now. I began my working career as a 3d visualiser at The Buchan Group - Melbourne for several years and then moved on to work as a project architect with Billard Leece Architects leading a number of $20million plus government health projects in Victoria, producing the majority of my CAD drawings work with Bentley Microstation V8. After a short stint with Vincent Chrisp Architects, I started up an architectural visualisation business, Just Sketch Design, and for several years helped other architects with 3d perspectives and photorealistic rendering. Wanting my own piece of the action, I took on my own architectural projects using Sketchup as my primary CAD software. Over the years in my time working for myself and various practices, my presentation and graphics skills have won many project commissions, from commercial shopping centres, multistorey buildings, community civic buildings and even a Buddhist monastery complex. Images and presentations that I have produced have been shown to Lord Mayors, government ministers and published in major Australian newspapers.
I use Sketchup nearly every day to present to clients, check dimensions for builders, and co-ordinate services with consultants. It has proved to be the complete architectural CAD solution for my architectural business.
How do I teach?
My focus is to teach relevant practical Sketchup skills to people in the architecture and building design fields; sought-after skills that give you the edge in 3d design and visual presentation, skills that can help you win multi-million dollar contracts with winning presentations, unify your workflow from concept design to final documentation, all using Sketchup and a number of cheap or free complementary programs that keep your ongoing software costs down. The classroom environment is best where I can provide one-on-one assistance where necessary, and I use numerous examples and exercises that are specifically designed to help you understand Sketchup's tools and interface, and how to apply them to your work.
I am opening my knowledge bank of Sketchup wizardry to you. My courses show you how to produce material similar to that seen on these pages so that you can wow your clients, employers or customers in order to help you win that commission or get that job you're after.
Whether you are a design firm owner wanting to improve your business, a new graduate looking to gain sought after industry skills, a business development manager in a large architecture firm looking to up-skill your designers, or a draftsperson looking to diversify their knowledge, my Sketchup courses can give you and your business the competitive edge.
