Teresa adopts a straightforward and practical approach that strives to produce solutions that are intelligent and imaginative. She is adept at enthusing others.
Her unflagging drive to attain quality makes her committed to following projects through to construction on site. Teresa has over 35 years’ 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 major mixed-use developments to infill sites and refurbishments.
Experience gained in decades of regenerating areas of London is now informing work in Cambridge, Oxford and the wider south-east.
