Derek is the Chief Financial Officer at time&space,  responsible for all things financial – for both the company and projects.

Derek co-founded the company in September 2000, after a successful start to his career in commercial interior design. He cut his teeth in various sales and consulting positions in the built-environment industry.

Derek, the golfer, fisherman, and general petrol head,  is the proverbial “jack of all trades”, with 29 years and a wealth of experience in commercial interior design and construction.

Showing true entrepreneurial spirit, Derek started his first interior design company during his first year of study in 1987.

We’re time&space design consultants, a team of highly motivated, creative and dynamic individuals.


time&space design consultants was started in 2000 by three friends with a passion for creating unique, functional, superior commercial interior design. We’ve spent our careers learning about commercial spaces and we’ve come together to use that knowledge and passion to create the ideal workspace for you.

We realise that your office is more than just a showcase of your organisation, it’s a home – to you and your team. That’s why we don’t just sell furniture and finishes, we don’t just make pretty spaces. We offer solutions. We make a plan. We create the most functional space for you.


We build workspace interiors perfectly, on time, and within budget.  Every time!


Our mission is to continually learn, every day, in this ever changing world. We’re continually driven to grow and move with the trends so that we can offer you the services your business needs.
