This progression is the result of a long standing succession plan as George Noworyta takes a back seat in the business. George will still be there, offering support, and taking an interest in jobs, however he has over the past few years being working with Mark Harrison, Kevin and myself to ensure a seamless succession. Whilst Kevin and I only officially became directors yesterday, our involvement in the day to day running of the practice has been gradually increasing over the past few years. It'll therefore be business as usual!
Kevin studied Architecture at the Manchester School of Architecture up to RIBA Part 1 and thereafter Architectural Technology at the University of Bolton. He joined TADW in 2007 and has since been involved in major housing and special needs projects.
As for me, like Kevin I joined the practice in 2007 on my first years experience after my RIBA Part 1 degree. I have been with the practice ever since while completing my Part 2 and 3 degrees, and becoming a registered architect, whilst working on a mixture of projects including in the residential, ecclesiastical and community sectors.
It's an interesting time for the architecture profession, with significant changes afoot to the way we work and live - such as with increased remote working brought on by the pandemic, and the ageing population; and the way we design - low carbon, sustainable design, BIM etc.. We are looking forward to embracing all these changes, contributing to a better future and helping the business to evolve.
