Meet Suresh, HPA’s Senior Architect in the Spotlight

Suresh Rathod

Senior Architect

Suresh, a seasoned architect with over three decades of experience, is a distinguished figure in the field of architectural design. Originally from Lancashire, he spent a significant portion of his career in Liverpool, notably as part of the Brock Carmichael Architects team. After retiring in 2022, Suresh felt a strong calling back to his true passion and re-entered the workforce, armed with a wealth of knowledge and experience.

His academic background includes a master’s degree in Sustainable Building Conservation from the Welsh School of Architecture, highlighting his commitment to preserving and revitalizing architectural heritage. Throughout his illustrious career, Suresh has exhibited a profound passion for architectural detail, building conservation, and the sustainable reuse of historically significant structures.

One of his notable projects was the Liverpool Anglican Cathedral Visitor Centre, where Suresh played a crucial role in integrating a contemporary-style gift shop and mezzanine café bar into the Grade 1 listed Liverpool Anglican Cathedral. This ambitious project earned recognition through awards like the RICS Regional Awards, Liverpool Best Practice Award, and Best Large Visitor Attraction award.

More recently, Suresh contributed significantly to the conversion and refurbishment of the Grade II listed former Stour Vale Mill, creating a new museum and visitor centre for the Carpet Museum Trust in Kidderminster. This project celebrated Kidderminster’s historical significance in carpet making.

Suresh serves as a technical mentor to everyone in the office, entertaining us with his stories and witty Dad jokes.
