7 May 2019: Today represents a significant landmark in the history of BRP architects, with the practice celebrating its 40th anniversary following its formation on 7th May 1979. Originally established as Bundey and Rodgers Architects, by John Bundey and Tony Rodgers, the practice grew and expanded the workload, which led to welcoming Michael Hales as a Partner in 1988. In 2000, following the retirement of John Bundey, Alan Sankey joined the senior management team and the company name was updated to B&R Partnership, reflecting a change in direction for the business. Following the retirement of the last of the founding Partners in 2007, the name was updated to BRP Architects – as we are still known today.
2010 heralded a change of the company structure, from a Partnership to Limited Company. This was subsequently followed by the retirement of Michael in 2011 and introduction of Chris Woods as Director to work alongside Alan. For the last 8 years both Directors have sought to develop and evolve the business, building a strong team that specialise in the delivery of primary and specialist healthcare projects as well as maintaining a strong presence in the residential and residential care sectors.
As part of the celebrations associated with this special milestone we will be digging in to the archives and posting details of 40 projects over 40 days. Watch out for our 40 projects over 40 years on LinkedIn and Twitter!
