About Peter Laker
Peter started his working life as a Structural Steel Fabricator by completing an apprenticeship with a Steel Construction Company in central Victoria. After approximately 15 years of building knowledge and experience in the trade, he developed an interest in Drafting.
He then completed some Cad courses and his initial interest soon turned into a passion which led him to start his own business called LAKER DRAFTING SERVICE. Due to his strong background and knowledge as a Steel Fabricator, the business specialised in steel detailing for the fabrication industry.
Once in Business Peter purchased TSD (The Shop Detailer) and was later contracted as a programmer and Trainer with the Company.
LAKER DRAFTING SERVICE was contracted to do workshop drawings for the steel work on the roof of Stadium Australia and the Dunc Gray Velodrome for the Sydney 2000 Olympics. They received the AISC NSW Structural Engineering Steel Design Award, Major Structures for the Dunc Gray Velodrome and the AISC Steel Design Awards Judges Special Award, NSW & ACT for the Dunc Gray Velodrome.
Peter has since relocated to Queensland and has worked with Companies gaining experience in the use of Strucad and Xsteel.
His goal is to share his knowledge and passion for Drafting by making his tools available to you through PxCad.
