Andrew Dobson

Partner, BA(Hons) MArch (International) RIBA AABC

Andrew studied designing for sensitive sites, reflecting vernacular materials, culture, and sustainable design, particularly design-for-climate. Coupled with his experience at Purcell, this developed into a passion for the conversion of historic buildings for new sustainable uses, and the construction of extensions and new buildings in historic and sensitive settings.

Andrew’s experience at Purcell lies in complex refurbishment and conversion of listed buildings, primarily in the Public sector. In particular, Andrew has key experience in integrating complex services systems into his projects. His designs make use of existing building features where possible to provide passive solutions for long term sustainability, and also thoughtful and discrete integration of climate control for museum spaces.

He was responsible for introducing Autodesk Revit to Purcell in 2006, and has actively used this software as a key element of delivering projects using BIM Level 2 in delivering coordinated design solutions across all design disciplines.

Andrew enjoys working on projects from feasibility through to construction, and has a wealth of experience in running projects on site.
