Craig Reed

Position: Director

Management Team

Craig joined Associated Architects in 2024 to head the practice’s Leeds office, bringing with him an established track record at a senior level at a design-led AJ100 practice.

His broad project portfolio spans the commercial workplace, civic, and Higher/Further Education sectors, covering projects of all scales and typologies from concept to completion. His experience includes the delivery of technically-complex designs, retrofits, new buildings, and masterplans.

With over 20 years experience, Craig’s design, technical and project management skills have been used to deliver unique buildings to award winning standards. Most notably he led a commercial office project from inception to completion in under 18 months, and went on to be awarded a British Council for Offices Award.

Craig has developed a specialism in delivering fast-track projects (to a fixed deadline and to exacting high quality standards) by virtue of the high profile projects he has delivered for blue chip companies. He has combined this with the delivery of multiple academic office projects University of Leeds Architectural Framework over the last 15 years. These project are naturally time-bound by the start of an academic year and his adept skill for guiding the client team through internal stakeholder engagements and staff consultations, gets the very best out of projects within the available time constraints.
