Stephen George + Partners LLP (SGP) is delighted to announce that Richard Smyth has been promoted to Partner, effective from 1st January 2021. Richard has been Studio Director at the AJ100 practice’s Solihull office since 2014 and will continue to focus on long-standing clients as well as developing SGP’s West Midlands offer.

I am looking forward to developing our staff and leading growth for SGP across the West Midlands. I have been – and will continue to be – a champion for challenging our design ambitions as well as expanding the design processes used to deliver high standards.”
In 2014, Richard returned to SGP following 10 years project leading multi-disciplinary design teams on developments specialising in complex industrial facility design, manufacturing and infrastructure.
