Stockport based BTP Architects is celebrating the appointment of five new team members to start 2021.
Despite the pandemic impacting many businesses, the firm, which has its office in Heaton Mersey, has made new hires including Adrian Pearson who joins the architecture practice as Senior Conservation Architect.
The former director at architects Lloyds Evans Prichard, who was awarded the prestigious King of Prussia gold medal in 2016 for his exemplary conservation work at St James Church in New Brighton, has more than 35 years’ experience in the sector.
Adrian plays a key role in building BTP’s conservation portfolio and pioneering technological innovation in the conservation field to include the use of BIM and 3D modelling.
Arina Cernysiova is another to join BTP as an Architect. Her career began in 2011 working as an architectural assistant developing extra care, assisted living and retirement housing. Arina completed her master’s degree in 2014 and qualified as an architect in 2017.
Josh Pearson and Martin Parsons have been appointed as Architectural Assistants.
Martin completed his master’s degree at Newcastle University in 2017 following graduation from De Montfort University in Leicester in 2014. He previously worked for a practice in Plymouth focusing on extra-care, residential and conservation schemes.
Josh joined the team as a part II Architectural Assistant in late 2020 and is looking forward to working to achieve his Part III qualification. He graduated from Manchester School of Architecture in 2018.
To complete the round of new appointments, Isabel Roberts takes on the role of Office Manager. Isabel brings a wealth of experience in office administration spanning 15 years to the practice and an interest in art and architecture.
Vicky Saunders, Managing Director at the BTP Architects said:
We are delighted to have welcomed on board Adrian, Arina, Martin, Josh and Isabel in recent months.
“Their combined skills and experience have strengthened our team as we head into the New Year, enabling us to continue the development and growth of our practice.”
