“I am interested in making the very best use of scarce land in our crowded country, and I’m inspired by the best of our ordinary historic fabric, which is effortlessly beautiful, adaptable and durable.”
Andrew has over 30 years’ experience in housing, mixed-use and regeneration, and has both designed and delivered a series of successful and award-winning projects. Skilled in masterplanning, he has expanded the practice’s expertise beyond urban regeneration and into urban extensions in rural areas and completely new settlements. He has also led PTE’s diversification into the fields of education and high density mixed-use.
