Our team

Our Team

Over four decades the team at TNW has helped to shape a spectrum of heritage, education, commercial, agricultural and residential projects in Cheshire and North Wales. The senior team has a wealth of experience working closely with individual, corporate and institutional clients and co-ordinating the work of specialist environmental and construction professionals.

John is the founding partner of the practice and has led a wide variety of residential, commercial and heritage projects over his career. He has a particular interest in shaping new developments to fit in creatively and sympathetically with highly sensitive and treasured settings in both urban and rural locations. In his community work John has helped pilot village design studies in Cheshire and is a founding member and chairman of SEEN in Chester (Sustainable Environmental Education Network) which engages children in live projects in the neighbourhood of their schools.

In her career Lelia has developed an unrivalled expertise in creating kindly, inviting and safe environments for both young and old; within educational settings (at primary and secondary level) and care homes with a particular focus on dementia and elderly care. She has also completed many affordable housing schemes for housing associations. In her community work Lelia brings her experience to bear in chairing the Case Committee of the Architects Benevolent Society.

Michael is an architectural technologist with over 35 years’ experience in many different areas including commercial, education and care. His precision in technical design is invaluable when producing the more specialised detailing required for zoological buildings. He is a steady technical hand behind all our major projects and brings a keen design eye to the translation of complex building requirements into practical solutions.
