P+HS Architects continues expansion plans


P+HS Architects is continuing its expansion plans.  Hot on the heels of the company’s move to new, larger offices in Leeds city centre, Managing Director Joe Biggs today announced three new senior appointments to its Leeds and Stokesley teams.  

In Stokesley, Derek Shepherd becomes an Associate Director and Stephen Hatcher moves into the role of Associate.  Ben Hellawell is appointed as an Associate in Leeds.

Derek, a senior healthcare architect, has led P+HS teams as an Associate for the last two years. Joining the Board as Associate Director he will be more closely involved in the management of the business and the expansion of its highly successful healthcare work.  Architectural Technologist Stephen Hatcher will work closely with our healthcare teams and in his new role as Associate takes on management and team leadership responsibilities.

As part of P+HS Architects’ new residential strategy, senior architect Ben Hellawell takes on new responsibilities as an Associate, leading one of the residential teams based in the Practice’s contemporary new Leeds office in Albion Street.  

Joe Biggs commented “ The directors are delighted to announce these new appointments which will strengthen the healthcare and residential teams whilst at the same time making provisions for the future resilience and success of the business. Derek, Steve and Ben have been part of the organisation for a number of years and therefore fully understand the values of the organisation. I look forward to working with them as part of the team and exploring the new opportunities that these appointments will generate”
