BILLY ROLLO, Associate

“I joined Rolfe Judd Architecture as project architect in 2014, this was a couple of years after I moved to London from Leeds. I liked the office building, which is a converted church, and felt that this was the right move for my career development.

I was first involved in Twickenham Station, a mixed-use project. The project gave me great experience in working through planning challenges with local resident groups. Following this, because of my previous experience in the sports sector, I started work on the new Peter May Stand at the Oval for Surrey County Cricket Club (SCCC). The site is just round the corner from the office and I am still working with SCCC on their development plans. We have a number of projects which are ongoing, the most recent of which are the proposals for the new Lock Laker Stand.

Towards the end of construction of the Peter May Stand, I was promoted to senior architect. During this time I was managing and developing the detail design and delivery of an office project in the heart of Mayfair. I was promoted to associate level in 2016, so I now work on and manage multiple projects at the same time, across all work stages.

Working here at Rolfe Judd gives me the opportunity to be involved in different sectors and also with various directors, this exposes me a broad range of skills and design approaches; the directors are all very supportive. As a company we are developing our BIM understanding, two of my projects are being delivered to level 2 detail.

As well as learning and developing my architectural experience, I have also acted as a mentor for staff undertaking their Part III studies and I have been an active part of the sports and social scene including softball and touch rugby with the Rolfe Judd teams.”
