    Luke Anderson joined the Whitecode team in 2014 when he was tasked to establish a South African CAD office to provide additional CAD support to Whitecode Design Associates. What started out as a small operation has steadily grown to a compliment of 11 staff, thanks to his careful planning and staff resourcing.

    Luke obtained a degree in Architecture at the University of Free State in South Africa in 1998 before moving to the UK where he worked for two prominent home builders spanning more than a decade during which time he was introduced to Whitecode Design Associates as early as 2004. He returned to South Africa in 2011 to start a family and during this time he did consultancy work for the UK and extensive project management locally before being approached by WDA. His time in the UK has contributed to the success of the South African office which now additionally services external clients in the form of working drawings for M&E contractors, architectural drawings and more.

    In his spare time Luke enjoys spending time with his family and the odd round of golf.
