BA (Hons) Arch
Ash has been fascinated by architecture from a young age and had found the technical side enticing. He began to study architecture while at college and working for a Chartered Surveyor undertaking architectural work for small local residential projects.
Ash graduated from the University of Plymouth where he studied Architecture in 2006 which was followed by a couple of years working in architectural practices in Devon. During this time, he undertook a plethora of projects within small practices - quickly having to learn to run entire projects from conception to completion. The steep learning curve paid off with projects being featured in national publications and more recently being featured on national television.
During this time, Ash also began designing a new studio focussed on sustainable construction for one of his former practices - which he eventually, along with a couple of colleagues, built in order to have a good appreciation of site activities and the impact drawings can make on site.
Ash joined A&Q in 2010 in the Dorchester office and soon began running commercial projects for a national client. Since then he has undertaken several multi-million pound specialist education facilities; high-end heritage residential schemes for a large land owner and new housing schemes with developers while maintaining strong working relationships with them all.
