A graduate from the University of Lincoln in Hull has been appointed partner at a renowned London-based architectural firm.


Andy Heath (37), originally from Telford in Shropshire, completed both a BA Honours and postgraduate diploma in Architecture, followed by a Professional Practice qualification at the university. He has recently been appointed to the role of partner at bptw partnership in Greenwich, in south-east London.


After graduating in 1992 Andy worked at several Hull-based architectural practices including Browne Smith Baker and Piercy Design.


He has been an integral part of the bptw partnership team for over seven years, and has worked on a number of key developments including the recent regeneration of the Pepys Estate overlooking the Thames in Deptford.


He has also contributed towards the refurbishment of frail elderly accommodation such as The White House, part of the Kender Estate regeneration programme.


bptw partnership is an award-winning practice. Among its many accolades, the practice was recently awarded the Building for Life Silver Standard from the Commission for Architecture and the Built Environment (CABE). The partnership is also listed amongst the Sunday Times’ ‘100 Best Small Companies to Work For 2005’.


“I am delighted to join the partnership and look forward to a greater involvement in shaping, and contributing to its continuing success,” said Andy.


“During my studies at the Hull School of Architecture I developed a keen interest in housing design which I was encouraged to pursue through a number of design projects.


“As a leading practice in the field of housing, working with bptw partnership has allowed me to utilise and further develop my skills, culminating in the completion of a wide range of developments.”
