We're really pleased to have Phil as part of the team, and his skill and experience are already proving to be invaluable to our capacity and the overall quality of our work. We grabbed five minutes with Phil to say hello:
I studied in Manchester and worked for several years at various architectural practices in Lancashire, engaged in housing and commercial projects, and also in the healthcare sector, before moving up to Aberdeenshire in 1993.
I worked with my last practice in Aberdeen for 25 years, applied for this position at Brown & Brown earlier in 2020 – and here I am!
An Architectural Technologist is involved in all aspects of a project.
Advising on materials and construction, taking a project from survey stage through to design and producing working drawings, collaborating closely with the Architect, clients, contractors and other building consultants.
I don’t have any architectural heroes as such.
I appreciate good architectural detailing, whether it be an old gothic cathedral, a piece of modern architecture or a nicely designed piece of furniture.
My dad was a cabinet maker — a true craftsman — so I think that’s where my love of detailing comes from.
I enjoy the buzz of a creative office and generally like music in the background.
I love most aspects of my job — from surveying an old steading, to construction and joinery detailing, and site inspections.
It’s always great to see a project come together on site.
I enjoy photography, walking, cycling and DIY.
Attention to Detail.
