Join us in congratulating George Morley for completing his Post Graduate Diploma in Architectural Practice at the University of Bath.
“The nurturing culture at HLM Architects encourages thoughtfulness and creativity.”
Passing the course provides George with RIBA Part III exemption and he can now register with the Architects Registration Board (ARB) as a qualified architect.
George began his architectural studies at the University of Plymouth, moving to Cardiff to complete his Part II and studying at Bath for his Part III.
Since joining the Cardiff studio in 2019, George has worked in multiple sectors including Defence where he has worked on Single Living Accommodation for new Officer Accommodation buildings in Cheltenham and Windsor and Education on projects including Thames Christian College and a new High School in the Vale of Glamorgan.
This year, George worked on the initial competition entry for RIBA Home of 2030 Design Competition which culminated in the practice being shortlisted to one of six for the second phase with the winner due to be announced on the 4th December 2020. George worked with the team to develop the design concept and helped create the house type designs used in the final submission.
George said “I consider myself to be really fortunate to work in the Cardiff studio; the team are so supportive. The nurturing culture at HLM Architects encourages thoughtfulness and creativity. Matthew Thomas and Scott Frederick have mentored me, advising and explaining project management, construction and the legal issues to take into consideration. They’re both talented designers and have been patient with me, allowing me ‘breathing space’ to take charge of issues and trust me to take responsibility for things.”
Keen to pass on his knowledge and help develop architects of the future, George teaches the design module to first year students at the architecture department at Cardiff University’s Welsh School of Architecture alongside his role at HLM Architects.
