Shaun believes that planning is about sustainable economic growth with the emphasis on growth. Seeking to understand the political and community context is key to planning success.

Having built the foundations and developed the company with Clive to the 37th floor, our friend and colleague Richard Boon is handing on the plans to new partners. Richard is due to retire at the end of April.

Richard, along with Clive Brown founded the company and helped build it to a multidisciplinary practice, filled with high grade professionals, architects, planners, landscape architects, architectural technologists, and apprentices in all the above. Richard’s wisdom, experience and guidance will be missed. We intend to celebrate Richard’s retirement in a couple of months’ time and hope to be able to gather as many past colleagues, friends, and clients as possible.

Founding Partners: Richard Boon and Clive Brown

Whilst Richard’s departure is tinged with sadness, we have great pleasure and excitement in welcoming Abigail Baggley, Mike Payne and Tim Shepperd to the board. This trio bring a wealth of architectural and project management experience to the table, matched with comparative youth, new ideas and enthusiasm.

Abigail Baggley | Architectural Director
Tim Shepperd | Technical Director
Mike Payne | Business Development Director

Abigail, operating out of our London Office and driving the vision for our practice. Tim, with an eye to fine detail, both in buildings and the business as a whole. Mike, with a proven track record and particular skills in securing new business.

Clive Brown, Shaun Travers and Oli Clark are very much looking forward to continuing to take the business to the top floor alongside these excellent new partners.

Onwards and upwards!
