A former director and senior partner, Andrew Beharrell has designed and delivered many award-winning projects throughout his 30-plus years with Pollard Thomas Edwards. Now, as one of two senior advisors, he lends his expertise to PTE’s research and development group Knowledge Hub, maintaining and improving design standards across the practice.
Andrew’s support of Knowledge Hub helps ensure that the practice fosters a culture of feedback and continuous design innovation and provides essential client guidance and support.
Andrew’s architectural, urban design and masterplanning skills have been fundamental to PTE’s evolution and diversification, ranging from urban regeneration to new rural settlements, and across the housing spectrum to embrace education and town centre mixed-use projects.
Andrew is a key communicator for PTE. He is a regular industry commentator, in the press and at live events, and has co-authored and edited a series of influential publications on housing, planning and regeneration issues.
He is a member of Design South East and several local authority design panels and an active participant in organisations such as the Housing Forum and Future of London.
