Joseph Silva promoted to Principal Architect
Stephen George + Partners (SGP) is delighted to announce that Joseph Silva has been promoted from Architect to Principal Architect.
Joseph joined the practice in 2020 as an Architectural Assistant and qualified as an Architect in 2021. A member of SGP’s Logistics team, Joseph has extensive experience in the design and delivery of high-quality commercial masterplans at all RIBA stages and has recently delivered a scheme of 14 warehouse and light industrial units at Christmas Hill Business Park in Oxfordshire.
Since joining SGP, Joseph has also been a key driver in the development of the practice’s work in the Leisure and Hospitality sector. His experience designing hotels in Asia, and an understanding of client and occupier requirements, ideally positions him to design successful schemes for the burgeoning UK hospitality market.
Joseph also leads the SGP Mentoring group, focused on strengthening the knowledge of Architectural Assistants and technicians, with a particular emphasis on helping with qualification and chartership.
Marcus Madden-Smith, Partner, adds: “Joseph has been promoted to Principal Architect having continued to work in the industrial sector delivering projects at all RIBA stages, most recently in Thame. In addition, Joseph has taken on further responsibilities within the practice becoming deputy of the Leisure and Hospitality sector. Passionate about championing new design concepts and consistently pushing the envelope for good design, Joseph has also contributed to numerous thought leadership pieces for the practice, such as Sustainable Cities. We would like to thank Joseph for his continued dedication to mentoring staff and his commitment to the growth of the business. A well-deserved promotion.”
Says Joseph: “I feel honoured to have been promoted to Principal Architect. It is one of SGP’s greatest strengths to encourage our development, allowing me to progress the Leisure and Hospitality sector that I am so passionate about, as the sector deputy. This promotion has provided significant affirmation that the practice management value my input, skills, and hard work. I look forward to developing further at SGP.”
