Bill joined Simpson & Brown in March 2019 having previously worked for a small practice in Aberdeen for over 11 years. The office specialised in private domestic and boutique commercial projects in the north-east of Scotland that often involved the conversion or refurbishment of listed buildings. Bill’s interest in the existing built environment and its context is one that he developed while studying at the Scott Sutherland School of Architecture, also in Aberdeen, and then expanded as he moved into his professional career during a Part I placement in rural Northumberland.
At Simpson & Brown Bill has been working with team members on a new visitor centre to Lincoln Cathedral, joining the project when it started on site. He has also been assisting on a scheme to convert an old MOD Listening Station in Fife to become a family home. He is currently working towards his Part III qualification via a part time course at Newcastle University and hopes to complete this later this year.
