Lee has over 20 years professional practice experience, having been involved in an impressive plethora of projects, to various degrees of complexity and detail, in a variety of sectors.
Starting work as an office junior/ junior technician at a small Huddersfield practice, on day release to technical college, he carried out countless surveys and produced Planning and Building Regulation Applications for bespoke residential extensions, conversions and new-builds.
Following this, prior to joining Brewster Bye September 2017, Lee worked at a large Wakefield practice and three Leeds practices, of very differing sizes. Here he amassed experience as principal technologist and, more and more frequently, ‘job runner’, getting heavily involved in schemes, to name but a few: countless retail and commercial buildings; ‘traditional’ form of contract supermarkets and petrol filling stations; refurbishment and new build schools for Durham BSF, one of which is attached to a new leisure centre; health centres; refurbishment of an existing mill into 198 apartments; a local radio stations new premises with four studios; mixed developments, one consisting of offices, a 120 bed hotel, retail units and, of all things, a nightclub in the centre of the building.
Just prior to joining Brewster Bye, Lee had been heavily involved with a rather complicated ca. £16M office refurbishment, above the second busiest train station in the UK and landlocked by Network rail. Here, as well as being job runner, Lee was appointed as the Principal Contractor’s Design manager.
Since joining Brewster Bye, Lee has completed a full construction package of drawings for Harrison’s Castle Road development, Whitby, for 80 plots, with 18 plus different house types. Lee has now hit the ground running on his current project, Home Groups Salford Works Extra care scheme in Brighouse, comprising 65 apartment in a single building terracing up a steep site.
