Historic building consultant and architectural practice join forces

Architect and historic building consultant Purcell Miller Tritton has merged with Bristol-based architectural practice Niall Phillips Architects.

Mark Goldspink, chief executive officer at Purcell Miller Tritton, said: “We have been discussing extending our operation to the Bristol area with Niall Phillips and his team for just under two years so we are delighted to have concluded our negotiations successfully.”

Niall Phillips Architects has worked in both new-build and conservation. Recently completed schemes include the iconic £6.7m Wolverhampton Art Gallery project. The architect repaired and upgraded the nineteenth century building and was involved in the creation of a new radical triangular gallery extension.

Niall Phillips said: “Most of our projects are new-build and therefore I believe we are a vital element in the continuing development of Purcell Miller Tritton and its already varied portfolio of projects.”

New-build work includes involvement with the recent completion of a £3.5m visitor centre for Cardiff Castle, a new residential building for Dillington College in Somerset, as well as finishing a world heritage resource centre at Blaenauan in Wales.

Goldspink said: “We are looking forward to adding Bristol to our other nine offices in the UK which gives us a strong geographic spread and enables us to service most types of projects whether heritage, hotel or new build.”
