Another Staff Milestone

It's hard to believe, but at the start of July, Tom Potter will chalk up 20 years with P+HS Architects!

Tom started life with P+HS as a summer job with no formal architectural training, but with a change of career direction and a lot of hard work and dedication he is now a senior member of the team. Here's his timeline:

2002 graduated in Ecology and started at P+HS as a summer job sorting out the archive boxes in Stokesley; stuck around after the summer and applied for the Architecture course at Leeds Metropolitan University (now Leeds Beckett)
2003 moved to Leeds, working part-time through term time and full-time in holidays and placement years
2008 started design work on first medical centre, Ireland Wood Surgery
2010 completed Part 3 course, finally ending 10 years of further-education
2011 became a registered Architect and completed Ireland Wood Surgery
2012-2019 did lots of work! Spanning a wide range of primary and acute healthcare projects, including modular schemes, refurbishments and new-build.
2019 became Healthcare Lead to champion our healthcare expertise and share knowledge within the practice
2020 became Associate and Resource Lead
2021 became Studio Principal
