Shane Rogerson

Senior Designer

Shane’s passion for building design started at a young age. Some of his earliest memories are of going to work with his dad, a builder and drafter, and being fascinated by the design and building process.

Shane started a Bachelor of Design (Landscape Architecture) at Queensland University of Technology and not long after built his own home. It was the building of this home that led to his undertaking a Diploma in Building Design and took him back to the construction industry that he loves. Shane has also had extensive experience using computer based home design programs meaning he can create realistic renders to help customers visualise their new home.

Shane loves building homes that are perfectly suited to the Queensland climate. His background in Landscape Architecture means he has a strong understanding of site considerations and this allows him to build homes that are comfortable year round in the warm Queensland environment.

His favourite types of projects to work on are family homes. He loves listening to the needs of families and designing a house that works for them. Shane feels that his greatest reward is seeing growing families enjoy their Queensland lifestyle to the fullest in a custom home that’s been designed just for them.

Ben Bailey

Building Design Consultant

Starting from an early age, I always took a liking towards construction and design. Playing games and building lego as a kid sparked a passion that I would pursue in my later education. Following in the footsteps of my older brother, I chose subjects in High School such as Graphic Design, Woodwork and Metalwork that would be the foundation of my future learning and career. As my brother moved towards carpentry, I decided to focus my attention onto architectural software, building design and 3D Modelling.

After finding my passion in design, I decided to continue this path after High School and studied a dual diploma of Building Design and Interior Design. I found it very interesting and exciting to see what could be achieved in the design world and 3D modelling. After completing my diplomas, I soon found myself a part of the JMH Design team.

As a Building Design Consultant at JMH Design, I look forward to meeting new clients and working with them to deliver a functional design that meets their needs to the best possible quality.



Junior Architect

Design has always been a passion of mine, from playing with Lego and Meccano as a little kid through to art in high school. The ability to create something meaningful really appeals to me and has long been a major criterion for the career I chose.
A future in architecture and building design first occured to me while studying Graphics in high school. The sketching and the programs were new and exciting and I felt that a job in this field could definitely be for me (and with the last name Window, it seemed fitting).
Four years and one degree later I was welcomed onto the team at JMH. I’ve learned a lot in my short time here and am excited for what the future holds.
