Paddy had extensive training with Elliott’s of Reading, a high-level architectural joinery and metalwork specialist contractor; they undertook complete project management of prestigious contracts within the UK, ranging from heritage refurbishment to complex bespoke commissions.
He gained invaluable experience working with Elliot’s setting out and design team. A key part of this role involved working with external designers and architects, transferring their concept ideas into comprehensive working drawings. An eye for detailing coupled with practical workshop experience was a prerequisite facilitating this process. These skills are now applied across all our commissions, from conception to completion, and are particularly useful within the conservation sector, where understanding the historic context of significance is crucial when undertaking projects in a sensitive manner.
Also being a Chartered Builder, gives Paddy a good understanding of the interfaces of building and associated trades which enables appropriate detailing.
Paddy is a Fellow of the Institute of Carpenters, and is also currently studying for an MSC in Conservation of the Historic Environment at Henley Business School, The University of Reading.
