This year’s Queen’s Birthday honours saw our very own Damian Rogers appointed as a Member of the Order of Australia for his “significant service to architecture, and to the building and construction industry, as a leader and administrator of professional organisations.”
Damian began his career apprenticing on building sites in the mid 1970’s, progressing through to a site subcontract foreman, before returning to study Architecture at the Advanced College, under famous local Architect, Barry McNeill. Damian joined the Australian Institute of Building (AIB), whilst working for construction company, Hansen Yuncken, in 1988, and has served as a Chapter Council Member, President, and today as the Tasmanian Chapter Secretary of the AIB.
Damian joined BPSM Architects as a Director, in July of 1995, where he has been involved with the design and project management of numerous high-profile projects, including major works at UTAS, TAFE Tasmania, Barossa Park Lodge, Barossa Park Wellness and Community Centre, and the Mornington Fire and Ambulance Station, which won a “Best use of Brickwork in Construction” award from the Tasmanian Master Bricklayers Association Inc. Damian is also a founding director of national architecture firm, ArPM.
