PRP’s London studio signals growth with new senior promotions

Leading UK architecture firm PRP has promoted directors Craig Sheach and Bhupinder Singh Chawla to the role of partner. Both are based in the practice’s London studio.

Craig, who has been with the practice for six years, will continue to work across a number of residential-led regeneration schemes, large mixed-use town centre sites and co-location masterplans. He is currently leading on a number of schemes in London and the South, including a new urban quarter in Reading, the regeneration of Redhill Town Centre and Lewisham Gateway.

Bhupinder has been with the practice for 20 years and has extensive experience in housing and mixed-use projects, including large scale regeneration projects. He is particularly skilled at realising the technical design of projects from inception, through planning to completion for private developers, local authorities and housing associations. Most recently he’s been leading on the creation of PRP’s first 100% volumetric development on behalf of Pocket Living in Chiswick and has submitted a regeneration project for detailed planning for Peabody in Lambeth.

“PRP’s London studio has grown by more than 25% over the past six months with an expansion in our masterplanning and town centre regeneration capability and further growth in the Build to Rent sector. A focus on out-of-London opportunities has yielded dividends with a string of competition successes from Bedford to Truro.  Bhupinder and Craig’s promotions to the PRP board recognises their contribution to the practice and enhances our capability in providing an exemplary standard of service and design quality for our clients.”
