Peter Smithson

Peter holds a degree in Architecture from the University of Melbourne and graduated with further major studies in materials science. Over more that 35 years he has specialised in:
• The design, from concept to detailed design, of curtain wall high rise facades,
• The chemical interactions between the various materials comprising glazing systems, and
• The forensic investigation of various construction materials science matters resulting from chemical incompatibility. Today, Peter’s workload is almost entirely court expert witness work.
