Mike Begent CV
My experience includes a range of project sectors, large healthcare and science buildings at STW, small bespoke projects including tetra-shed, as well as larger housing schemes at RPA, and most recently my own house renovation and extension, and a collection of bespoke agricultural buildings.
Open minded, supportive and empathetic, I have enjoyed successfully working in teams and coordinated with external consultants to manage and deliver client expectations, and have found that an atmosphere of collaboration is key in this respect.
I have good practical and analytical skills, am observant, and imaginative. I have a passion for exploring materials, old and new processes of making and integrating this knowledge into my designs. This approach has been developed from my varied range of professional work including a good deal of construction detailing, plus hands on building experience in both innovative (3D printing / CNC cutting) and traditional (green oak framing) construction methods.
I believe architecture should make a sustainable response to social, economic and cultural context teamed with robust environmental design, with the aim of creating responsible, site specific, enjoyable architecture.
