Senior Architectural Designer & Technologist
BA(Hons), PGDip, MA
“Mark studied interior design at the Hull School of Architecture, where his final year work was examined by the influential architect Tedd Cullinan CBE and subsequently awarded a first class degree with honours. Mark went on to win an award for ‘Best Conceptual Building Conversion’ at the 1997 New Designers Exhibition, London and from this was granted a bursary to complete his masters in Interior Architecture with Information Technology at Birmingham Central University.
Prior to joining Hayes and Partners in 2010, Mark worked comprehensively in the education and commercial architecture sectors. His most notable contributions were his extensive involvement on the New Humanities Building for The University of Manchester and the refurbishment of John Dalton Tower for Manchester Metropolitan University. Mark also worked on the design for a new BBC studio block at Salford Media City.
Mark now works as part of the Hayes & Partners project delivery team, taking projects from planning consent, through production information and construction to final completion. One of his greatest strengths is as a job runner for large high-specification replacement dwellings; in 2015 his extensive work on Lower Brook Barn was ‘Highly Commended’ at the LABC Building Excellence Awards. The project was also featured in the Daily Telegraph Home Building and Renovations magazine.
Mark is also responsible for Hayes & Partners’ implementation of Revit software and BIM (Building Information Modelling). As the construction and design sector develops, Hayes & Partners looks to the future of the industry, and BIM allows the practice to successfully collaborate design, technical information and engineering detail with other disciplines, through 3D computer aided design.
