Niall seeks the highest design standards for new work and has an innovative approach to projects. He believes in using cost-effective labour to make the most economic use of resources and taking on a sustainable approach. From early days, he discovered a talent for packaging up the elements that need to be in place before drawing can start: resources, funding, acquisition and development programming.
Niall was a founder of the Vivat Trust for building preservation in the UK and the Brunel Engineering Centre Trust, Bristol. He has been involved in the conception of multiple groups and trusts dedicated to the regeneration of a particular building or area.
Niall has a track record for securing major funding from sources such as the Heritage Lottery Fund. His commonsense approach to his projects ensures that they make the most economic use of available resources.
