James joined 20 years ago and is the lead on all our planning projects. James, who ‘loves getting paid to draw’ and ‘solving the puzzles’ that surround planning and construction, studied at Bradford & Ikley Art College, Portsmouth University and the Mackintosh School Of Architecture.

James has recently been involved in a charity focused project that uses art to build adults’ confidence. Working with a very tight budget he created a brief to move the charity for disadvantaged adults from their previous building into a new space that helped cultivate their success.

James is waiting for his children to grow up before he pursues his career as a rock star.
