Job Role: Associate Director | Architectural Technologist
Iain is an Associate Director working out of the Leeds Studio. He joined DLA Architecture in 2004, and has a wealth of experience in a wide range of sectors.
Skilled in project running, Technical Design, and problem solving, Iain works from Inception through to completion including client liaison and coordination of specialist contractors to strike a balance between the aspirational and practical – implementing skills on recent projects such as Central Square Leeds, Headingley Stadium, Oak House Leeds & Vanguarde York. Iain is a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists (FCIAT), heads up the internal DLA Technical Forum and sits on the CIAT National Project Taskforce.
As Iain spends the majority of his working life indoors, he likes to spend the majority of his personal life outside with his family - and enjoys hiking, cycling and snowboarding. He is a huge fan of music and films, and quite proud of his varied tastes in each.
Favourite Design / Building:
Iain admires buildings that utilise simple solutions to create something that is visually stunning, and the answer to this question changes regularly. The clean lines of Villa Mortanas in Stockholm and the simple yet striking aesthetic that was used to create the façade of the Charles Street car park in Sheffield are a couple that stand out to him.
