Jesus College Opening

On Tuesday 10th October, our West Court project for Jesus College was officially opened by His Royal Highness, The Earl of Wessex. The Earl was taken on a tour of the buildings during which Niall presented our proposals for Phase 2 including a new 300-seat auditorium.

You can read about the event on the Jesus College website here.



On the 21st September Niall will be speaking at the 2017 AIA Colorado Practice + Design Conference in Keystone, Colorado. The annual conference is to inspire and educate the architectural community, celebrate excellence in design, and explore highly relevant practice topics through a series of insightful presentations on a wide range of issues.



The Welcome Building

The Welcome Building in Bishop Auckland consists of a new viewing tower and central ticketing hall for the The Auckland Project. It acts as an access point and gateway to the wider site whilst also giving views over the town and landscape setting. The tower – a timber framed structure – is now well under way on site.

The building team has worked tirelessly and with the highest level of precision, to build the in-situ concrete lift shaft. Working from the ground up seemed to take an age.

Meanwhile, the enormous larch glulam beams have been carefully crafted and manually grey-oiled in the joiner’s workshop.

The frames are now being lifted into position on site and suddenly the building can be seen. Almost in an instant. As if the past four years had happened in the blink of an eye.

We are so excited and proud – even – to see this fantasy project becoming real at last. But with completion on the horizon, time seems to now move all too fast.
