Brewster Bye draws talented trio to its team

A Leeds-based architecture practice has made three new appointments following a number of high-profile residential project wins.

Brewster Bye Architects has appointed Part 2 Architectural Assistant Tim Chesnutt and Junior Architectural Technologists Miho Sugiyama and Jonathan Neal.

Cambridge graduate Miho achieved a BA (Hons) in Architecture from Christ’s College and an MSc in Technical Architecture from Sheffield Hallam University, where she won the MSc Technical Architecture Outstanding Student Award.

Jonathan graduated with a BSc (Hons) Architectural Technology degree from Northumbria University and has spent 2 years working at DLA Design in Leeds. Tim graduated from University of Huddersfield with a First class BA (Hons) Architecture International Degree, and then gained a Masters of Architecture with a Distinction grade.

Jonathan said: “Experienced in AutoCAD and Revit I’ve worked on a range of residential, commercial and education projects and will work alongside the rest of the team at Brewster Bye carrying out feasibility studies and creating 3D modelling solutions for residential property developments.”

Tim said: “After six years studying architecture, which included a project in China, I achieved the highest degree level possible in a subject I am very passionate about. I’m now reaching the final stages of my Part 3 training, before becoming a fully qualified architect. My move to Brewster Bye from Calderpeel Architects in Manchester will see me continue my project work in residential housing amongst lots of other exciting projects.”

Miho joins Brewster Bye from CMI Architecture in Milton Keynes, where she worked part-time whilst studying full-time for her Masters degree. She said: “I have been involved with several residential projects, and during my time at CMI I was able to further my Revit experience. I’m looking forward to continuing my career and finalising my qualifications here in Leeds.’

Brewster Bye’s managing director, Chris Austin, said: “Tim, Miho and Jonathan are really talented, enthusiastic and technically very sound individuals who have all worked for many years to achieve their goals. We welcome them to our thriving practice and will encourage and support them with their future development.”

Brewster Bye’s UK-wide portfolio includes residential property work for private developers, house builders and social housing providers, commercial buildings in both the office and industrial sectors, community projects for the education, health, community enterprise and arts sectors, as well as a number of significant projects within the sports and leisure sector. The firm employs a team of 24 people.
