My core background of experience was working with existing buildings, many of which were listed, and new buildings in sensitive and built up surroundings which has developed my reputation for reinventing and rejuvenating spaces to create exciting light modern living and working environments, utilising traditional and modern techniques and adopting conceptual design principles.

Righteous ethics are applied to all jobs from small domestic extensions to larger ventures. With ongoing personal involvement at each stage of the projects and attention to detail; strong relationships are formed with all of my clients resulting in repeat appointments.

My career began working for the family construction and engineering business. I went on to work for a local architect working on a wide variety of commissions including high end private residential, the hotel industry, sports facilities, the education sector, the National Health Service, private industrial and commercial sectors, and high end speculative developments. I am a Chartered member of the Institute of Architectural Technologists and also qualified as a Domestic Energy Assessor.

I held a partnership role in a multi disciplinary practice for seven years before setting up Harris McCormack Architects with former partner Simon Harris. I work with a broad practical knowledge and vast experience.

Martin Stevens MCIAT  Associate


Martin@harrismccormack.co.uk

I began working in Architecture back in 2004 at a local practice whilst studying part-time on a construction course. This exposure to both live briefs alongside tuition gave me a solid knowledge base to grow and develop in the field of architecture. I remained with the practice for 7 years, where I met Simon and William before moving on to another firm. I spent 5 years working within the retail and care sectors, mainly focused on large scale care village developments in the south of the UK from inception to delivery, for a number of well-established national client organisations. I then re-joined Simon and Will at Harris McCormack Architects, and since then I have qualified as a Chartered Architectural Technologist. I strive to deliver the best possible service with all of the projects I work on, whether it’s a minor alteration or a multi-million pound development.

Lucy

Lucy Ward BScHons RIBA ARB Architect


Lucy@harrismccormack.co.uk

I have been working as an architect for over twenty years, with substantial experience in the residential and conservation sector, particularly in the wider Peterborough region.

With a Post-Graduate Diploma in Sustainable Development and Climate Change, I am particularly interested in low-energy design and I have designed two low-energy houses in the past.

I worked as a sole practitioner locally for a number of years before joining the practice, and I bring this wide-ranging experience into Harris McCormack Architects.

The world of architecture and design is fascinating for me, and offers a never-ending source of inspiration both in my working day and in my wider life.

Tom Ramsden BA Hons    Architectural Technician


Tom@harrismccormack.co.uk

Previously working in a number of varied disciplines, I am equipped with a cocktail of qualities that make me an unusual character in the studio. I am approachable, patient, dedicated and conscientious, creating intuitive and considered solutions with a keen eye for well executed contemporary design. As my experience grows, so does my hunger for responsibility and opportunity to get stuck in to new construction and design challenges.

I have high aspirations and the potential to fulfil those goals – watch this space!

Adam Janas  MArch    Architectural Technician


Adam@harrismccormack.co.uk

I completed a Masters Degree in Engineering from the Faculty of Architecture and Town Planning at Silesia Technical University in Poland. After graduation I started my career at an Irish Practice working across a diverse range of projects, these included commercial, residential and interior shcemes. I moved to the UK in 2011 and have continued my career path in the construction sector developing my professional knowledge.

I am strongly focused on ergonomics, aesthetics and problem solving, I hope that by aligning these I can bring positive solutions that work in both form and function. Now at HMA I am excited to work on varied, challenging projects and aspire to deliver exceptional quality work.

Joshua Ingram      Trainee Architectural Technician


Joshua@harrismccormack.co.uk

After completing my A Levels I worked in the family’s construction business for a year working on new build, extensions and conversion projects. This allowed me to gain on site experience as well as broadening my technical knowledge. Since joining Harris McCormack in 2018 I have been exposed to a wide variety of local projects, all whilst studying Construction and the Built Environment at the local college which is bolstering the start of my career in architecture and can’t wait to see where it goes!

Soapy Profile

Sophie Boulton BSc  Architectural Technologist


Sophie@harrismccormack.co.uk

My Architectural journey began back in 2012, as a trainee Architectural Technician. I pursued a BSc Architectural Technology CIAT accredited degree, alongside my practise work and had the pleasure of working on many extremely sensitive listed and conservation projects.

Each one of my projects is approached with a passion to deliver design and expertise to help my clients achieve their target build. Be it; an extension to your family home, where it is not simply designing an addition to a house but understanding how you and your family function daily and creating a space that works specifically for your home! Maybe a new-build development, where a relationship with local authorities early, is essential to save you time and cost down the line. Or perhaps an industrial Unit where space is invaluable, but constraints are tight for specific machinery/employees. Whatever you project, small or large, I can work with you to introduce new ways of reinvigorating your space and achieving your visions!
