About Sam Ray

Sam started out in Structural Engineering in 1996 on the Northern Beaches of Sydney and
after 5yrs he worked out what his true passion was, Building Design rather than engineering.
In 2001 he started his own Building Design business on the Gold Coast. After designing
projects for 5 years Sam decided to expand his design company to incorporate building in
2006. After completing over $12 million worth of building works in a 7 year period, the
decision was made to scale back to focus on his true passion, design and project
management! Having extensive construction experience Sam is able to provide designs that
are personal, creative but most importantly buildable.
