Managing Partner

BA(Hons), MArch, ARB, RIBA

Leading on design, while also acting as finance director, managing partner and director of Brock Carmichael Asia, Chris brings over 10 years experience as a RIBA chartered architect to our practice.

Chris trained in Leicester and London and worked for several years at Foster + Partners on a variety of high profile projects including the multi award winning £120M redevelopment of HM Treasury. He was shortlisted for the RIBA Silver Medal in 2002.

Chris has a special interest in design-led projects including anything involving urban regeneration, adaptation and re-use. He also has extensive experience of residential design, education projects and office design and enjoys working with clients on individual housing projects.

Currently active on regional and national projects, in particular PRS (private rented sector) and education projects, Chris has also led high-end schemes in London and the Far-East with projects ranging from the £1Bn regeneration of Kunming’s Wuli district to a large new-build private house in a sensitive London conservation area.

He says; “At Brock Carmichael we implement our extensive skill base to ensure we add value to all stages of the construction process, we ensure we fully understand a client’s project specific objectives but take the time to learn about their wider business or personal agendas. A successful client architect relationship is always based on trust. We earn a client’s trust through old fashioned time given and quality of service.”
