Hayley Brings New Expertise to HPA Team!
HPA has strengthened its team with the appointment of a new architect. Hayley has joined HPA and will work on a range of leisure, hotel, residential, and commercial projects for the practice.
Richard Wooldridge, director of HPA, said: “Hayley brings further knowledge and skills to the practice and I believe it’s the strongest team we’ve ever had. This strength in depth will serve us well as we continue to win exciting design briefs across a broad range of sectors.”
Hayley qualified as an architect 18 months ago, having completed seven years of architectural study at the University of Nottingham interspersed with work placements at local architecture practices. She worked for Damson Consultancy Ltd upon qualifying, followed by a 12-month spell at The Wright Design Partnership before joining HPA.
As part of her final studies, Hayley’s thesis project looked at the regeneration of Dalston, a district of Hackney in London, reacting to the impact that gentrification and immigration were having on the demographics of the borough.
Hayley also studied the principle of designing to Passivhaus standard, a concept developed in Germany in the 1990’s, where the heating requirement of a building is reduced to the point where a traditional heating system is no longer considered essential.
Hayley, who is from Lancaster, said: “I chose HPA because of its excellent reputation and the fact the practice has an exciting and expanding workload. I was particularly attracted by the fact the practice is currently investing in BIM (building information modelling) showing the forward progression of the company.”
