After graduating with an Engineering degree in architectural design, Diane worked as an architect with a particular passion for lighting designs, graphic design and landscaping. She previously had experience within the construction industry, which grew her interest in passive fire protection and engineering.

Diane’s role at Origin involves working with architects and other consultants within the design and construction fields. She is often busy with construction monitoring, building maintenance, producing reports and plans as well as consulting with clients for 3D modelling.

She enjoys the versatility of her role and particularly enjoys collaborating with clients and project managers to solve problems and build better, safer buildings together.

Diane combines her skills and learning in architecture, landscape and lighting design, graphic design and drafting, to bring her experience in construction, engineering and fire protection to every project she works on.

Fluent in Cantonese and Mandarin, Diane can add bilingual Chinese text to Origin’s designs, plans and specifications. When she is not in the office, Diane enjoys socialising, dancing and going to the movies with friends and family.

“I love Origin’s culture, professionalism and the magic of this team, everyone works so well together. In an industry I know well, it’s special to be part of fresh approaches and contribute to collegial solutions.”
