Our cofounder Kevin Quah is a highly experienced consultant, designer and site manager who brings 31 years of work and study to our company’s clients. Mr. Quah studied at the McNair Institute of Technical Education from 1985 to 1987, specializing in architecture, and here he completed his National Institute of Technical Education Certificate (NITEC) 2. He studied at Singapore Polytechnic from 1992 to 1995, where he received his diploma in architecture.
During his many years working and studying in the architectural field, Mr. Quah has cultivated an international network of highly skilled professionals, including interior designers, builders and contractors. These individuals compliment and reinforce Mr. Quah’s strengths as a consultant and a designer. He calls upon this extensive list of professionals in his work, and this network serves as a unique strength that differentiates him from many other professionals in his field. For instance, while working to restore a house with considerable historical value, he called upon artisans he knows from China to preserve the house’s singular aesthetic touches. If Mr. Quah hadn’t been able to draw upon his extensive professional network, it’s doubtful that the house would have been so completely restored and preserved, or the project could have lasted much longer than it did.
Mr. Quah begins every project by consulting with the customers. During this initial consultation, he determines the customers’ exact needs and desires, along with how these interact with their budget. He also takes into account architectural concerns such as safety and building codes. Mr. Quah advises the customers on the outer aesthetics of the building with a particular eye toward how it meshes with the landscape and any surrounding buildings. He also provides his customers with advice about the building’s internal layout and seeks to design a space that is both beautiful and functional.
Customers have shown that they respect Mr. Quah’s skill, aesthetic sense and expertise, and he works on some 30 to 40 architectural projects every year. We are proud to have his skill, knowledge, professional connections and refined artistic sense in our company, and his work has helped to set the tone for the professional quality of our work.
