Philippe’s journey in engineering began with his education at prestigious French engineering school, the ESPT in Paris. His interest in engineering began in his teenage years, fuelled by a strong inclination towards technology, computers, programming, and 3D software. Philippe was drawn to engineering due to his passion for physical geometry and physics.
His ambition was to either run an engineering company or create his own. Philippe completed the final year of his master’s degree at RMIT in Melbourne, which was an opportunity to expand his horizons beyond France.
He started his career in Australia with GHD in Perth, where he honed his engineering skills, particularly in computational techniques like finite element analysis.
His career at GHD involved developing procedures for Building Information Modelling (BIM) and adopting new technologies in the industry. After several years at GHD, Philippe sought to expand his capabilities and wrote a business plan for this purpose.
Subsequently, Philippe founded Delonix Solutions.
Delonix Solutions started from scratch, building its reputation project by project. Over five years it grew significantly, expanding its team and project portfolio. Today, the company has over 50 wonderful employees across a multitude of disciplines including engineering, drafting, and 3D scanning.
