As a key member of Director Richard Perry’s team, he has successfully led a variety of residential, mixed-use, commercial and education projects, including Curzon Wharf which is the only net-zero carbon, mixed-use, residential-led scheme in development in the Birmingham.
In the education sector he has led projects including the UK’s first University Training School at the University of Birmingham and the School of Architecture and the Built Environment at the University of Wolverhampton, which was shortlisted for the Architect’s Journal Building of the Year 2021. At SOABE the imaginative pairing of the old and new will be of particular relevance, acting as a live case-study for the school’s students. Sitting on the site of the former M&B Springfield Brewery, the building has been designed to set a benchmark in quality for subsequent buildings on the Springfield site, retaining some of the its historic buildings while adding contemporary yet complimentary new build spaces to deliver a cutting-edge facility.
His expertise in BIM made an instrumental impact on the George Davis Centre for Medicine at the University of Leicester (currently the largest non-domestic Passivhaus building in the UK) and he has had a huge impact on the practice’s development of BIM implementation, usage, and staff training.
Alex is the Associate with responsibility for QA and leads the practice in this area, ensuring systems and protcols meet current standards and ingrate seamlessly with those of our clients and collaborators.
