BDN’s Ulverston office expands with new hire

Award-winning Ulverston / Sunderland based architecture and engineering practice, Building Design Northern (BDN), are accelerating their ambitious North West expansion plans with a new appointment.

Myles Wright has joined the 26-strong firm as an Architectural Technologist and will be based in the firm’s North West office in Ulverston.

Graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in Architectural Technology at Birmingham City University in 2022, Myles has secured a graduate position with the northern firm.

Originally from Ulverston, Myles will assist the North West team with an array of residential and commercial developments, as the firm is continuing to expand its portfolio of projects in the Lake District.

With offices in both Sunderland and Ulverston, the multi-disciplinary practice offers architecture, structural and civil engineering services to clients across the UK. BDN are the driving force behind a £2 million project which will see a former railway stables in the shadow of Sunderland AFC’s Stadium of Light converted into a mixed-use leisure venue comprising retail, food & drink and entertainment space. In 2020, they led the £1m restoration project of the listed Old Simpson Street School into its North East head office and luxury apartments in 2020 and are now seeking to establish a larger Ulverston base.

“I’m excited to have been given the opportunity to work at BDN. The team here are incredibly knowledgeable and are so helpful when I have any queries. I have thoroughly enjoyed my first few weeks, getting heavily involved in the whole architectural process in both residential and commercial projects.”

Speaking about his recent appointment, Myles said: “I’m excited to have been given the opportunity to work at BDN. The team here are incredibly knowledgeable and are so helpful when I have any queries.

“I have thoroughly enjoyed my first few weeks, getting heavily involved in the whole architectural process in both residential and commercial projects. I am looking forward to my future with BDN!”

Director of architecture and head of BDN’s Ulverston office, Joe Warner, said: “It is a delight to welcome Myles to BDN. We have enjoyed a period of growth in our Ulverston base, which has created an opportunity to expand and invest in local, talented graduates, like Myles.

“Myles is an excellent addition to our team and it is great to see his skills develop and get used to practice life!”

Myles’ hire continues BDN’s period of planned expansion in the Lake District, as BDN has plans to open a larger North West office later this year to support a local development, with an announcement due in the coming weeks.
