Property people: Brewster Bye Architects

An architecture practice in Leeds has appointed a junior architectural technologist apprentice as part of the firm’s commitment to investing in the next generation of industry talent.

Brewster Bye Architects has appointed Ciaran Cartwright who is also a Leeds College of Building student.

Cartwright said: “I will continue to go to college one day a week, with the rest of the week spent in the office.

“I can’t wait to get started, I’m really keen to get more practical experience and working at Brewster Bye will be a great opportunity to work on a vast range of stunning schemes across the north of England.”

He already has two years industry work experience working alongside a qualified architectural technician.

At his placement, he helped with design concepts and construction packs for several projects, assisted with preparing information for planning applications, as well as liaising with engineers.

Director Nathan Wilkinson, from Brewster Bye, said: “We are very passionate about encouraging people into the industry from every educational pathway.

“We have been impressed with the calibre of students from Leeds College of Building and hope to build on this partnership in the future.

“Ciaran is already confident in AutoCAD and Revit, which are software applications we use, and he has a real interest in design and technology.

“He is keen to get a degree level qualification via the apprenticeship route and become an architectural technician, and we will support him every step of the way.”
