In January 1939 he joined his father's office at 103 Bath Street, and he was admitted ARIBA on 6 March that year, his proposers being his father, his father's partner Daniel Walter MacMath, and William James Smith. He continued his father's practice for a short time after the latter's death on 30 July 1956, finally closing it in 1958. He later worked in Stirling County Architect's Department.
