LEEDS based Brewster Bye Architects has made two high profile promotions with Matt Seddon becoming an Associate Director and Gareth Jackson being promoted to Associate.

Matt and Gareth

Matt has worked at Brewster Bye for 10 years and was previously an Associate. He now heads up the firm’s commercial projects team and is also Brewster Bye’s Quality Assurance Manager as well as overseeing the company’s IT requirements and infrastructure. He is currently working on the conversion and refurbishment of the historically important crescent at St Leonards Place York .

Gareth joined Brewster Bye six years ago as a Senior Architect and has established a strong reputation for creating standout affordable housing schemes, extra-care developments and community projects. He was responsible for designing Headingley Enterprise and Arts Centre (HEART) which won the prestigious RICS Pro Yorkshire Community Benefit Award last month and in his new role he will now lead projects as part of the firm’s management team.

Brewster Bye’s Managing Director, Keith Brewster says: “Both Matt and Gareth are valuable members of our team and thoroughly deserve these promotions. They both excel in their respective fields and continually go above and beyond to create projects that genuinely stand out from the crowd, which is something that our whole company ethos is built around.

“Over the last 12 months the property and construction industries have turned a corner and Matt and Gareth’s promotions strengthen our team and ensure that we are well-placed to take advantage of the market’s recovery while maintaining the level of client service that we are renowned for.”
