Janet joined west+machell in 2001 as Project Architect. After completing a number of successful projects she went on to become Associate in 2004 and Director in 2006.
During her time at west+machell, Janet has become an expert in social housing, in particular Extra Care housing for the elderly. She has delivered numerous projects, spread across the country from Milton Keynes to Newcastle, for a number of housing associations and local authorities. She is involved in projects from inception to completion, ensuring that there is a continuous thread throughout the life of the project. She therefore not only has a wealth of experience in design, community consultation and securing planning approvals, but also has a wealth of technical experience from dealing with the gritty, day to day, on-site issues.
Due to her conscientious and meticulous approach to all the tasks that she undertakes, Janet is responsible for systems and risk management within the practice. She also has the role of Quality Manager, carrying out internal audits to ensure the effectiveness of our accredited Quality Assurance system.
