Ged is a principal who leads the architect profession group in our Manchester studio.
Ged’s work is primarily focused upon healthcare and science and technology. He has extensive knowledge and experience of leading the design and delivery of major and complex projects in these sectors, from initial concept stage through to completion. He has a meticulous design approach and enjoys creating innovative solutions for the challenging problems that sometimes occur on both healthcare and sci-tech projects.
He is currently the project director for the new major Christie Paterson Research Laboratory in Manchester and was the project director for the multiple award winning Alder Hey Children’s Hospital and the Clatterbridge Cancer Centre in Liverpool, which was handed over in June 2020. Both projects are major healthcare facilities with supporting pathology and production pharmacy services within them. He was also the architect project director for the NHS Nightingale North West hospital at Manchester Central Convention Complex which delivered a 750 bed regional Covid-19 emergency hospital in just two weeks.
Ged is on the Places Matter North West Design Review panel and in 2015 was appointed as a Built Environment Expert (BEE) by Design Council CABE. He is also a committee member of Manchester’s Forum for the Built Environment and is a former president of the RIBA Manchester Society of Architects.
Increasingly sustainable in all aspects of its conception, design and delivery by absolute necessity. This will apply to all sectors and building types if our planet is to continue to exist in the way that we recognise it today. Zero Carbon needs to become a realistic and common project ambition.
