Emma Newport joins the Register of UK Architects
HPA are delighted to announce that Emma Newport has completed her professional entrance examinations, and her application to join the Register of UK Architects has been accepted by the Architects Registration Board.
The title ‘Architect’ can only be used by people who’ve had the appropriate training, education and experience needed to join the ARB Register; a process which takes a minimum of seven years of a combination of study and practical experience.
Emma has been with HPA for two phases of practical experience during her training; completing almost 2 years with us as a Part 1 Architectural Assistant before moving to Liverpool University for her post-graduate training where she obtained a First in her Masters Degree. She returned to HPA in 2018.
Now, having passed her Part 3 exams whilst working at HPA, Emma has finally completed her studies and is a legally recognised architect.
Richard Wooldridge, a Director at HPA, said: “We’re really proud of Emma and all she’s achieved in the past few years. Emma first arrived at HPA over 5 years ago, as a Part 1 Year Out Student, and it’s been a fantastic to see her develop into a really valuable and knowledgeable member of our team who can now call themselves an Architect”.
Emma, who lives in Lancaster, added: “I am so pleased to finally be able to call myself an architect after almost 9 years of studying, and I can’t thank the wonderful team at HPA enough for their support throughout these last few years. I am looking forward to refining and continuing to develop my skills and expertise and I am excited about what the future brings for my professional career.”
HPA are delighted to have Emma as part of the team and Emma will continue to work with HPA on various projects across the leisure, heritage and residential sectors.
