Jamie first worked with HTA in 2010, bringing over 10 years’ experience of designing housing in both the private and public sectors including time as a Design Advisor with City of Edinburgh Council under Riccardo Marini. He became an Associate in 2015 when he relocated to Manchester and set up HTA’s office there.
Jamie has taken various roles during his time at HTA including leading technical delivery of innovative suburban and urban developments for private and social housing clients, contributing to and leading successful planning applications for large scale urban regeneration projects including Castleward, Derby for Compendium and the first round of West Lancashire Council’s Tawd Valley Developments sites in Skelmersdale, and practice roles including finding an office and recruiting talented graduates to join us in our Manchester studio.
Jamie’s interest has always been in making great new places, and making existing places better. He has presented research on the genesis and ubiquity of inner city ring roads in English towns, and is a keen follower of the latest developments in active travel and the transformative effects of low traffic neighbourhoods exemplified by Dutch urban design and increasingly being deployed in British towns and cities. Jamie tutors 5th year architecture students in the ‘&rchitecture’ Atelier at Manchester School of Architecture, led by Stefan Whyte and Mark Hammond, which focusses on housing and aging populations.
