JAN ALBERTS, DIRECTOR
Jan was brought up and educated in Christchurch, graduating with a B.Com. from Canterbury before turning his interests to the construction industry. Electing to earn a trade as well, he completed a post-graduate Diploma in Quantity Surveying at Christchurch Polytech, and studied Valuation and Property Management at Lincoln University.
The allure of the outdoors steered Jan away from corporate life, and he was much more comfortable at the sharp end of the industry – either on a rooftop, or presenting architectural products to architects.
Jan’s experience led him to specialize in the sheetmetal industry, where he has spent the last 20 years. During this time he met his business partner Richard Caminada, and together they founded Metal Design Solutions, where they continue to offer arguably the highest level of service and expertise to the construction industry.
