Architects Draw on New Generation of Talent


We are delighted to announce the appointment of four new team members to support the on-going growth of the business. Nick Page, Michael Bland, Waqar Hussain and Damon Fletcher have all joined Brewster Bye, which was established 22 years ago and is based in Headingley.

Architect Nick Page, who is from Ilkley, previously worked in Sydney on several high end residential projects in and around the New South Wales coast line. He has also worked on several residential schemes in Austria and Barbados for an international developer as well as delivering projects for the education and retail sectors across the UK.

Michael Bland and Waqar Hussain have been appointed as Part 1 Architectural Assistants.

Michael, who is from Middlesbrough, recently graduated from Leeds Metropolitan University and will work on a number of affordable housing schemes at Brewster Bye. Waqar, who is from Bradford, won several awards for his end of year project at Huddersfield University, where he graduated with a first-class honours degree before joining an architectural firm in London where he worked on several residential and commercial projects.

Damon Fletcher has been appointed as a Junior Architectural Technologist. Damon, who is from Birstall, graduated from Huddersfield University last year and already has experience in the residential sector.

Managing Director Keith Brewster says: “We are delighted to be creating four new positions at the firm, taking our total team number to 23. We feel it’s very important to invest in talented young people in order to nurture the architectural stars of the future and this summer we will be taking this to the next stage when we launch a brand new apprenticeship scheme in conjunction with Leeds College of Building.”
