In recent years, the primary focus of my energies has been domestic clients wishing to extend, rebuild or refurbish their homes, leading them through the process, presenting design options and helping with what to many may be unfamiliar, from the planning system to choosing the right contractor.
As Director of Architecture at Carroll Architects and Surveyors, in the historic setting of Wallingford, I worked on several Listed Buildings and Local Interest Buildings within the Conservation Area, preparing heritage statements on behalf of the practice and even on one occasion successfully getting a building de-listed.
I have a personal interest in sustainable design and am more than happy to help others willing to do their bit for the climate. Not only have I designed our own house loosely around the Passivhaus Retrofit standard, I have previously also completed several schemes for clients using the Code for Sustainable Homes.
As an Associate at Frankham Consultancy I had the role of sector lead for affordable housing, working for several housing associations as well as the City Council on a variety of general needs and schemes for over 55’s. including options appraisals.
During my time at Frankham Consultancy I was involved with Oxfordshire Rural Housing Partnership, completing more than 12 rural housing schemes, many on rural exception sites, mostly located in towns and villages around the West Oxfordshire and Cherwell Districts.
