Marcus van Heerden +
Team Leader, Senior Architectural Technician

What do you do at Carless + Adams?
I’m one of the team leaders who provides guidance, instruction, and leadership to a group of individuals in achieving project planning and construction deliverables. Also, I maintain the company’s software development and training needs. I’m always looking for the next edge to keep us at the top of our game!

Why did you get into architecture?
I’ve always been into understanding why and how things work from a very early stage, which led me to mechanical technology and onward to Architectural Technology. Being from a country where opportunities fell by the wayside, led me into an Architectural office which bought their first ever computer and thrust me into learning CAD. I’ve been privileged to have been involved in many Architectural disciplines and now look forward to growing in the Care sector.

What do you do outside of Carless + Adams?
To keep the mind young and the body motivated, I try my best at mountain biking, SUPing, Winging, Windsurfing, Surfing, swimming… okay, most water sports! On the odd occasion, I might just sit quietly on the beach.

We’re like architects, only a little bit different. Want to join us? 

Work + Play

Working for Carless + Adams

Every member of the team is crucial to our success and it’s equally vital that they feel respected, appreciated and recognised for the great work they do and above all enjoy their time at work. Our ambition is to make care a positive choice and we won’t achieve that without a positive culture.

We work hard but we work smart as a team and we’re always there for each other. For those with the stamina, we’ll play hard too. There’s always a cheeky get together at the pub on a Friday and every year we host two company events, a summer day out and winter party chosen by the team. And you’ve got to stay healthy too, so you’ll always find fresh fruit in the kitchen.
