Mike joined BDP in 2015 to strengthen the design and commercial capabilities particularly within the North West region.
Mike has successfully combined a distinguished career in architectural practice with teaching and working in commercial development from a client/contractor perspective.
He is particularly interested in exploring concepts of resilience and adaptation within design and creating buildings and places that are able to flex and change in response to shifting climatic, social and technological structures.
Data and communication will pervade and reshape every aspect of our lives. We need to have the foresight to design buildings that are resilient to change and that will remain relevant in a world with rapidly shifting physical and social structures.
BDP has completed a new flagship building for Manchester Science Partnerships (MSP). The 70,000 sq ft Bright Building is the new headquarters for CityVerve, Innovate UK’s Internet of Things city demonstrator, as well as the home to various tech businesses.
