Andrew was project director on the recently completed Portsoy Boatbuilding Centre project, where due to the charitable status of the client, and their requirement for match funding in order to sustain public funding, he volunteered a large part of his time (to the value of £25k) to help the project, as he believes strongly in their cause (teaching traditional skills to local schoolchildren).

Until recently Andrew was a lecturer at the Scott Sutherland School of Architecture, Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen. Whilst there he was responsible for the delivery of the ACES project, which is aimed at increasing the representation of students from MD20 (most-deprived 20% in Scotland) in creative fields.
