Greater Manchester architecture practice celebrates staff promotions

Award-winning architecture and design firm BTP have announced three staff promotions following a period of sustained growth.

Josh Pearson, who joined BTP in 2020 as an architectural assistant has been promoted to associate.

Over his time at the Stockport-based firm, Josh has developed experience in conservation architecture, contributing to a number of key projects in the sector.

A qualified architect and PAS 2035 retrofit assessor, Josh is also working on several large-scale retrofit and tower block recladding and remediation projects.

Also recently promoted to associate is Terri-Anne Pinfield. Terri joined BTP in 2021 as an architect and has since gained experience working on a wide range of projects including new build housing, retrofit and high-rise refurbishment projects.

Terri is a Trustmark registered retrofit assessor and has a particular interest at BTP in upgrading existing buildings.

Jessica Ward has been promoted to architect, and since joining BTP in 2021 as an architectural assistant has been involved in a variety of projects, from feasibility of residential schemes to the re-cladding of tower blocks.

A graduate of the Manchester School of Architecture, Jessica developed an enthusiasm for user-led projects and functional design during her time at university and has continued her work in these areas at BTP.

BTP Architects managing director, Vicky Saunders, said:

“It is hugely important that we invest in the development of our staff as our business continues to grow and this is another important milestone for BTP. We are delighted to reward the efforts of three exceptional individuals with exciting new roles, which will enable us to further enhance our offer to clients.
