Catherine Baudet was the Director of Ferrier Baudet Architects Pty Ltd for 23 years. In February 2020, after having sold her business, she started a new consultancy, Catherine Baudet Architect Pty.

Her goal is to assist people to achieve the best results possible in building by demystifying the architectural and building process and steering them towards best practice methodologies.

Catherine is a Life Fellow of the Australian Institute of Architects and has 40 years of experience in the building industry. Through her active membership of the AIA and other key committees she has been instrumental in developing recommendations for architecture within the construction industry.

Her extensive experience has enabled her to develop a strong rapport with major operators in the building and construction sector and has given her an acute sense of the practicalities involved in designing and managing construction projects.
