It’s important to me to be part of a project making a difference. I really enjoy the way our work impacts positively on generations of learners and school communities.”

Karin brings 30 years’ architectural experience in Aotearoa New Zealand, Norway, Yemen and Australia to her role in our Education team. With two decades as an educational documentation specialist working on projects across Victoria, Karin has amassed construction knowledge that’s second-to-none.

At ClarkeHopkinsClarke, the focus of her role is project documentation and detailing. Karin is thorough and meticulous with designed details and involvement in the execution on site. She seeks tidy and resolved material junctions, supporting ease of construction and delightful, clean design.

When documenting or leading projects, Karin’s care and attention extends to creating the kind of constructive relationships with schools and builders needed for great project outcomes. This has led to some highly successful partnerships and award-winning projects like Ringwood Secondary College.
