Thomas Bend, BA(Hons) MArch RIBA
During his first couple of years with the practice Thomas worked primarily on a large £40million residential development at Rathbone Market in Canning Town. Following a negotiated tender and the practice’s novation he managed the coordination of design team information and produced detailed drawing packages and specifications for construction. This project went on to win Development of the Year at the British Homes Awards 2017.
Since the completion of the Rathbone Market development Thomas has been engaged with a number of projects of differing scales and has been the project architect for private homes, a rural residential development, and a complex hotel refurbishment. He is currently working on the delivery of eight new homes in Leiston, Suffolk, and the extension of a historic farmhouse in Essex. Both of these projects are due for completion in 2018.
Thomas completed his undergraduate and postgraduate studies at the Manchester School of Architecture before joining Project Orange in August 2014. After gaining valuable experience in practice he completed his final architectural qualification in November 2016.
