Meet Ewan

Meet Ewan

Earlier in 2022 we welcomed Ewan Bunkell to the Brown & Brown team as an Architectural Assistant, where he works across a variety of projects while working towards his RIBA Part 2.

We caught up with Ewan to discuss his role at B&B, being part of the team, and Munro bagging.

How did you end up here?

I was on my year out searching for a placement, I was already very familiar with B&B as I had a particular interest in contemporary residential architecture and thought I’d give their Instagram a message asking if they were hiring and well, here I am!

What does your role with Brown & Brown involve?

My role involves assisting in all sorts of work ranging from feasibility studies to warrant packages. I work alongside the team here at B&B and help in any way I can. I have already worked on a broad range of exciting projects and had the opportunity to be on site, which is great experience at this stage of my career.

What does a typical day look like?

The day typically begins with a coffee and speaking to my colleagues about our workload. Throughout the day we may have online meetings to discuss what we’re working on, as we are working from home at the moment.

Any architectural heroes?

My third-year tutor Jamie Brown at the University of Dundee was a particular inspiration throughout my studies.

Do you prefer a quiet or noisy workspace?

It depends on the work. However, you’ll usually find me listening to an instrumental playlist or occasionally a podcast.

Favourite thing about your job?

I appreciate the responsibility I’m given. I enjoy the variety of projects we work on as they are all unique. I feel a real part of the team and thoroughly appreciate the time and effort my colleagues put into mentoring me.

What do you like doing when you're not at work?

I enjoy photography, travelling & recently munro bagging with my partner!

Describe Brown & Brown in three words.
