North East architect with 45 years in practice joins ADG Architects

A North East Chartered Architect is celebrating 45 years in the profession by joining a new practice.

Malcolm Cundick, 71, qualified as an Architect in 1970, closed his practice Alpha Plus: Architects and became an Associate at Darlington-based ADG Architects.

Cundick’s move to ADG Architects was prompted by a desire to continuing working in an office with fellow professionals.

He said:

“I have known ADG Architects Partners John Bell and Paul Kelly for a number of years and worked collaboratively them since 2011, so it was an easy step to join their firm.

Cundick is the last practising former partner of Hugh Wilson and Lewis Womersley Chartered Architects, a national practice which designed several UK new towns including Skelmersdale and Cumbernauld as well as Manchester’s Arndale Shopping Centre and a new campus for the University of Manchester.

The architect added:

 “I have enjoyed a strong professional reputation and never had to chase work. I enjoy what I do and after 45 years’ practice and seven years’ training to achieve Chartered Architect status, I do not want to give up yet, and have no plans to retire.”

As Inspecting Architect for many churches in the Durham and York Diocese and the Darlington Methodist District, Cundick specialises in ecclesiastical buildings and has undertaken numerous Church and associated community facility projects.
