Michiel Coertzen, Senior Architectural Technician - Auckland
Michiel joined the Respond team earlier this year as a Senior Architectural Technician. Originally hailing from Gordons Bay (a town about 50km outside of Cape Town, South Africa), Michiel and his wife immigrated to New Zealand in 2016. Outside of work Michiel is slightly obsessed with the ocean – surfing, freediving, stand up paddle boarding, fishing and swimming.
Since Georgina has joined the team, she’s worked on the structural design of new residential buildings, as well as alterations and seismic assessments of existing buildings. With a dad who was an Architectural Draughtsman and a self-taught builder, construction was always in her blood! She’s had experience across all aspects of structural engineering – from concept design through to completion of construction.
