    Karmen Volmink
    Director and Principal Designer - Volmink Group – Architecture | BIM | CAD

    I am a woman in construction. I have a vision to positively influence the Eswatini Building and Infrastructure Development Industry.

    I lead a team of talented Swati people, with a shared passion for Architecture, Design and BIM. Together we design and develop projects of varied scope, and we teach BIM through Archicad to professionals and scholars. Practically speaking, we practice what we preach.

    My enthusiasm for change and growth is unmatched! I enjoy pushing boundaries in both technology and creativity. I see the end result and pursue it with deep commitment. I am gifted with the vision to see things not as they are, but what they can be. I strive to unlock the potential of each project by applying knowledge, talent, skill and a dose of good working relationships. Most importantly, I am always learning.

    This is an exciting time to be involved in the digital evolution of construction! Let’s Connect!
