Pro Vision Promotes Architect to Associate Director

17th January, 2017

Pro Vision is delighted to announce the promotion of RIBA chartered architect Richard Douglas (pictured left) to Associate Director. Richard, 32, has worked full-time at our planning, architecture and urban design consultancy since July 2007.

Richard initially trained at the University of Bath before qualifying with distinction in both Part 2 and Part 3 of the RIBA exam from the University of Portsmouth and Kingston University respectively. He first joined Pro Vision as a student on placement and so impressed the directors he was offered a full-time position after graduating with a BSc (Hons) in Architecture. The company then sponsored him to take his Part 2 and Part 3 RIBA professional exams. Married to Esther, a nursing sister in the cardiac department at Southampton General Hospital, the couple have two young daughters.

Richard joins six other associate directors: Chris Fry, Jeremy Higgins, James Iles, Katherine Miles, Laura Cox and Justin Packman.

A talented architect, Richard has designed a wide range of mainly residential schemes, including one-off bespoke houses, apartments and large scale, urban masterplans. Alongside his architectural role, he also manages IT and operations at our multi-disciplinary firm.

Commenting on his promotion, Managing Director Steven Smallman said:
“At Pro Vision we believe that our young professionals have an important role to play in our continued success. Richard is both a talented architect and someone with an impressive understanding of our operations and IT needs - his promotion is richly deserved."

Richard Douglas said:
“I am delighted to have been made Associate Director at Pro Vision and am looking forward to the challenges ahead in helping to grow and develop this successful business.”

Other senior appointments

Two other senior appointments have recently been made as the company continues to expand. Chartered town planner James Iles and senior architect Giordana Burns joined the ranks of the company’s thirteen planning consultants and five RIBA chartered architects.
