Guy Whitehead, Managing Director, GW Architectural

Guy Whitehead (MCIAT), Managing Director

Guy has a passion for both architecture and building technology and relishes the opportunity to manage projects from their initial design conception through to completion.

Guy set up GW Architectural in 2010, following over a decade of working within the construction industry, where he held senior positions at a number of large practices within North East England. Throughout his career Guy has amassed extensive industry experience gained through working on, and successfully delivering, a number of key projects, for example, the award winning St Peter’s Sixth Form College in Sunderland, which resulted in Guy’s promotion to associate at Browne Smith Baker.

As Managing Director of GW Architectural, Guy has successfully obtained membership of the Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists (MCIAT), following studies at Leeds Metropolitan and Northumbria Universities.

Guy’s successes within the industry have led to GW Architectural being nominated for numerous awards, not to mention recognition in the media for the successful and sensitive restoration of a number of historic buildings. These successes can be attributed to the collaborative and inter-disciplinary approach in which Guy manages the design team, with a strong focus on achieving a high level of attention to detail whilst developing both creative and innovative designs.
