At RHP Matt was involved in a diverse range of projects, including residential work for Trinity Hall College (see David Urwin award for Best Building in 2010), as well as schemes for house builders and developers. He also has experience on numerous educational projects, including schools in Cambridgeshire and North London.
In 2004 he was involved in the prestigious refurbishment of the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts (designed by Norman Foster), when RHP were appointed as contractor’s architect.
Matt has significant project architect experience, including for the extension of the University of Warwick Department of Mathematics and Statistics (RHP), a challenging scheme which involved the design of an external glass bridge, linking the Department of Maths & Stats to the Department of Computer Sciences.
He also played a key site role during the delivery of a building to house a pioneering biomass processing plant for the University of East Anglia in Norwich (RHP), a project which will eventually supply the UEA campus with up to 40% of its energy.
