William studied architecture at the University of Edinburgh, graduating with a distinction in 2006. He completed his Part 3 at the University of Westminster in 2010. Since then, William has worked for several practices on a wide range of projects, including large-scale commercial projects for Eric Parry Architects.
His passion is for design in mental health environments, and in 2018 he undertook practice-based research sponsored by Imperial College, which looked into the built environment for mental health patients in the emergency department. The research included designing and implementing the building facilities, reviewing guidelines, interviewing stakeholders and carrying out pre and post occupancy evaluations.
William started at Walters & Cohen in early 2020, joining the project for Broadstone Academy in Shenzhen.
