Anthony is a Chartered Architect and Chartered Architectural Technologist, with 35+ years of professional and academic experience in the subject of architecture and architectural technology. After graduating with a BSc in Architectural Studies from the Welsh School of Architecture, Cardiff University in 1982 he completed a Bachelor of Architecture in 1984 and became a registered architect in 1985. Between 1987 and 1992 he was an Associate of a private architectural practice in Newport, South Wales and an active member of the Royal Institute of British Architects through committee membership of the South-East Wales Branch, acting as Chair and Vice Chair between 1988-94.

Anthony has particular expertise in the technical realisation of designs for construction and understands issues relating to buildability and durability to achieve best practice through the construction process. He is experienced in working with building contractors and clerk of works on construction sites and understands the importance and need to develop more collaborative approaches to producing appropriate building envelopes that can achieve the increasing government targets for thermal performance and carbon reduction.

Anthony’s particular interest is in the technical aspects of architectural design with focus on sustainability and buildability through architectural detailing. This has led to researching teaching practice and methodologies for studio delivery in architectural technology and teaching students how to detail a building design.
