Brewster Bye Architects makes Associate promotion

Leeds based architecture practice, Brewster Bye, has promoted Hannah Cawthorne to associate.

Hannah joined Brewster Bye in 2016 after previously working for architecture practices in Bradford and Leeds and completing a Master of Architecture Degree at Leeds Beckett University. She successfully completed her Part 3 exams, to become a fully qualified architect, in 2019.

In recent years she has played a key role on a wide range of residential schemes and apartment developments throughout Leeds and York. She is currently working on several large-scale apartment developments in Leeds city centre, including an 11-storey building and a tower with more than 20-storeys.

Hannah also oversaw the construction of Regent Lodge in Hyde Park, which Brewster Bye designed for longstanding Leeds charity, St George’s Crypt. The development provides 14 self-contained studio apartments for residents with alcohol dependency issues, as they prepare to live independently, and was named Yorkshire’s best residential development at the inaugural Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors’ (RICS) Social Impact Awards.

Hannah said: “This promotion is a great opportunity to further my career and take on more management responsibility whilst working on a wide range of exciting and pioneering developments that will help to shape the skyline of Leeds and beyond, over the coming years.”

Mark Henderson, director at Brewster Bye, said: “Hannah is a hardworking and talented individual who has become an integral member of our team and thoroughly deserves this promotion. There’s no doubt that she will continue to thrive as she takes on more responsibility and becomes more involved in the management of the business.

“This further strengthens our business and follows the recent promotion of Andrew Chapman to associate director, as we look to expand following the continued growth of our quality client base and exciting range of nationwide project across all the residential sectors.”

Brewster Bye currently employs a team of 21 based in Headingley, and plans to create three new jobs this year, in response to the increase in business from clients across the UK.
