Tricia Patel, Partner
BA (Hons) DipArch ARB RIBA
Tricia is one of PTE’s equity partners. She has spent over 20 years delivering regeneration initiatives and has planned and led numerous community engagement programmes, both on housing estates and in established mixed-tenure neighbourhoods.
Her enthusiasm, and talent for listening, can draw from clients and user groups a deep understanding of what they really want from their project. She is skilled at using the insights gained to produce successful outcomes.
“I really enjoy meeting people and finding out what they think about their home, their school or their street. They often have practical insights which might not otherwise occur to professionals.”
Tricia has long experience in the housing, mixed-use and regeneration sectors, and has both designed and delivered a series of successful and award-winning projects, ranging from large-scale masterplans to infill sites and refurbishments.
Tricia is also the practice’s ambassador for young people. Through workshops at PTE’s canal side offices, she encourages them to appreciate architecture. She has won the Junior Open House Architectural Mentor award.
