Diploma in Architectural Technologies


  • Southern Alberta Institute of Technology (SAIT) 2022


Brandon’s love and appreciation for architecture developed early on in his life. From a young age, he could be found building sandcastles, building Lego and admiring the building structures around him. While exploring potential career paths, Brandon took a certificate program in AutoCAD graphics at Camosun College, further sparking his interest in the field.

In 2022, he obtained his Architectural Technologies diploma from the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology (SAIT). While developing his drafting skills, Brandon focused on building envelope detailing, affordable housing, and office tower retrofits as a part of his Capstone project during his final semester.

After graduating, Brandon broke into the industry by working with a Design + Build firm focused on interior design. During his time with the firm, his role consisted of producing millwork drawings, drafting construction documents for both commercial and residential projects, interior 3D visualization, and construction management.

Outside of the office, Brandon can be found running down Dallas Road or in the gym weight training. During his downtime, you will find him indulging in a strong cup of coffee and watching hockey with his fiancé and their corgi, Boba.
