I am a heritage consultant based in Arup's York office. I deliver assessments, design and conservation solutions for historic buildings.
I am passionate about history and the complex stories contained within cities, embodied in their buildings. I am fascinated by details, compositions and symbolism. I am experienced in architectural detailing and the technical resolution of design – from medieval stone to post-war glass.
I have led various award-winning conservation projects, including the refurbishment of the Grade II* listed Engineering Building in Leicester, one of Britain’s most daring and provocative buildings. I wrote a book about it (“Diamond-tipped”) for which Lord Palumbo contributed a foreword.
Accredited with the Institute for Historic Building Conservation, I sit on the national casework committees of the Georgian Group and the Twentieth Century Society, two of the UK’s statutory consultees for work on historic buildings.
I have taught at several universities and lectured on architectural conservation at heritage groups including ASCHB and DOCOMOMO.
