Emile Jansen B.Arch (Syd.U).
Emile was first registered as an architect in NSW in 1970 and retired from active duty in June 2018, although still "available" for pro bono works in his community, and for the occasional "interesting" project.
In 2011 Emile was awarded The Rotary Club of Pittwater “service above self” award in acknowledgment of architectural services provided for the benefit of the community. In 2012 he was the proud recipient of an Australia Day Citizen of the Year Award for his work in the community which enabled the additions for the Mona Vale Hospital Palliative Care Unit to proceed. And in 2013 Emile was commended for his fundraising efforts by The Parliament of NSW.
In his spare time Emile loves to sail and drive his old Porsche in circuit races, which he has done with some success and enjoyment over the past 40 years.
As a past Fellow of the National Institute of Forensic Investigators, Emile has decades of forensic experience in analysis of design and construction and pinpointing causes of problems and remedial specification.
He was also a Fellow in the Royal Australian Institute of Architects and a Graded Arbitrator, in the Institute of Arbitrators Australia, and an examiner and mentor with the NSW Architects Registration Board.
