Chris was first employed as a surveyor for a small contracting firm and became heavily involved in project and cost management.
Following this he made the move into architectural practice in 1988, initially working on large scale housing rehabilitation projects and later widening his experience to schools, sports pavilions, children’s care facilities and heritage projects.
Working up through the ranks, he ran countless successful projects from inception to completion and was a team leader (Principal AT) before leaving in 2006.
He worked as client side advisor and facilitator on larger housing regeneration projects involving affordable housing and mixed development. This included working alongside senior representatives of the Commission for Architecture and the Built Environment.
Chris started the practice in 2006 and has since worked on school extensions, medical facilities, Church and commercial buildings, small scale housing schemes, one off bespoke houses and individual house extensions.
Chris is an active member of the Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists both regionally and nationally, helping to raise standards and recognition for both the profession and the built environment as a whole and has, over the last 5 or 6 years, been involved in the facilitating of the ‘Ask the Expert’ feature for Grand Designs Live and more latterly on a similar basis for the Northern Home Show and National Homebuilding and Renovating show.
Chris' formal qualifications include a base of construction knowledge through ONC and HNC Building Studies, leading on to a BSc(Hons) in Architectural Technology, Chartered member status of the Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists and Chartered Building Engineer status of the Chartered Association of Building Engineers.
Adi joined the practice in 2016 after having gained a First Class Honours degree in Architectural Technology. He is , however, no new-commer to architectural practice, having worked for Globe Architects and undertaking work within the healthcare sector.
Adi brings exceptional skills to the practice, having proven abilities in Autodesk Revit, AutoCAD, Photoshop, InDesign and Sketchup to name but a few. His skills as a designer have also been demonstrated, having earned prestigious wall space at his university degree show.
Adi is currently an Associate of the Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists and is keenly working towards full chartership in his own right.
