Tom joined JTP as a Part II Architectural Assistant after completing his Masters in Architecture at the Welsh School of Architecture, Cardiff.
More recently, Tom is working on a detailed planning application for Weyside Phase 3 in Guildford. This fully Passivhaus, design led scheme echoes the Victorian character prevalent along the River Wey and when built will deliver 190 new homes provided via a mix of terraced homes and 100% dual aspect deck access apartment buildings.
Tom has gained extensive experience in low density, mixed-use masterplanning projects in the southeast, including the urban extension at Manydown in Basingstoke. This project will eventually provide 3,500 new homes however Tom has been focusing on the Phase 1 Design Code for around 1,200 homes.
Tom is extremely passionate about community engagement and the importance of co-design throughout all stages of a design project. Having taken a deep dive into the topic in his Masters thesis, Tom has enjoyed translating those lessons into real practice via Community Planning Weekends in Harrington and Berinsfield as well as spearheading new Community Planning initiatives such as JTP Engages and a new inhouse working group.
Out of hours, Tom is a keen sportsman, filling his weekends with football, tennis, running, cycling or climbing. As well as this Tom enjoys music production and a regular bedroom DJ set.
