A former architect before joining Plan A, Simon has over twenty-five years of experience, so it’s fair to say he knows the design process inside and out. He joined us in 2018, becoming Technical Director in 2023. He co-leads the higher education sector.
As Technical Director at Plan A, Simon sits across multiple projects and provides technical input and strategic advice. He assists with quality reviews, the tool kit we use as Design Managers, and helps raise the office’s general technical and industry knowledge.
Simon has worked on complex projects across sectors, including large fit-outs to new multi-storey buildings and cultural masterplans. Recently, at Project Apple, he’s been working with the architect team in delivering the design for an extraordinary new R&D centre and state-of-the-art laboratory facilities for a biopharmaceutical company.
Outside the office, Simon judges architectural awards and is actively involved in the UK branch of Docomomo. He also teaches on the Professional Practice courses at the University of Westminster, the University of Cambridge and the Architectural Association School of Architecture.
