Caroline Dove joined HTA Architects in 1985 where she is a Project Director and Partner of HTA Design LLP.  With the three other Project Directors, she is responsible for securing and delivering the practice’s workload. She leads an enthusiastic, multi-disciplinary team who are experienced in delivering regeneration, mixed use and housing projects through all stages for Local Authorities, RSLs and Constructor-Developers.    

Caroline’s extensive project management experience and capability, combined with over 30 years’ experience as an architect, has enabled the successful delivery of complex projects across the UK. Working with communities has always played an important part in Caroline’s projects, and she sees it as key to successful, sustainable regeneration.  She has worked closely with residents to develop appropriate designs and implement rolling programmes, as well as consulting with the wider neighbourhood and other stakeholders. Caroline has a strong technical background and has developed excellent collaborative relationships with key Constructors to deliver schemes through post planning stages.  Current projects include regeneration, custom-build and development for local authorities providing much needed homes in the south-east.

She is also Partner responsible for HR at HTA; she led the practice to achieving Investors in People in 1999, a standard it has maintained for nearly 20 years. With a keen interest in supporting learning and development for HTA and communities where we work, she is part of the Trailblazer Group which has set up new apprenticeships in architecture.
