‘With over 20 years’ industry experience, before co-founding C Squared Architects, Andrew was a Director of an award winning, multi-disciplinary practice. Since then he has used his experience, passion and meticulous eye for detail to help drive the practice to the success that it is today. Throughout his career, Andrew has worked for many blue-chip clients, striving for excellence for all he works with. With a crucial understanding of what is required to deliver projects, he can evaluate schemes quickly and produce quality solutions. This approach to work and a crucial understanding of figures has helped the practice to develop projects in a wide range of sectors, including Petro-chemical building refurbishments, new and refurbished HGV service centres across the UK, high-rise residential apartments and specialising in the healthcare market.
Andrew has worked with many national care operators; Care UK, Bupa, Hallmark, Porthaven, Gracewell, Hamberley, and Tanglewood in addition to smaller operators and one-off clients. Andrew is well known and respected in the care sector, judging care home design awards, speaking at care shows and was involved in developing a research paper with Stirling University on Dementia Design. His in-depth knowledge of the industry has enabled C Squared Architects to build on past experience and create schemes that are truly flexible, even at feasibility stage, to adapt to the ever changing care needs brought on by a pandemic or changes in operator requirements.
As an Architect, Andrew is very much ‘process’ driven, with a ‘form follows function’ approach which provides a great balance and grounding for the design flare he helps to nurture and encourage within the office. Through this balanced approach we are able to produce well thought through, innovative designs that respond to the brief and budget.’
