JAMES DEERNESS

DIRECTOR/CONSTRUCTION MANAGER

BUILDERS LIC 223784C, CERT B DIPLOMA IN CONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT, CERT IV IN BUILDING & CONSTRUCTION (BUILDING)

Building is not just a profession for James, it’s a way of life that dates as far back as his childhood days when his father taught him the art of traditional timber boat building.  This skill has been passed down through four generations and has enabled him to build four new boats ranging from 8 to 34 feet in length.

The love of building continued into adulthood, and in 1998 James started his career studying Materials Engineering at The University of New South Wales.  This has provided him with a concrete understanding of the composition and suitability of materials in construction.  In turn, this knowledge is applied to every build. 

James has 20 years of industry experience and has mastered skills in timber, steel fabrication, precision TIG welding (gas tungsten arc welding), polished and off-form concreting, and composite fabrication.

In 2008, after 10 years forging a reputation as an accomplished craftsman and foreman, and being involved in multiple master builder award winning projects, James  formed Technique Build paying homage to the techniques he learnt along the way.
