Structures should perform their function with an elegant efficiency to provide spaces that will be enjoyed by all who use them. Materials must be chosen to suit their intended use and designed to minimise waste and embodied carbon.
We should be re-using and modifying existing buildings wherever possible. Through his extensive work on the refurbishment and extension of historic and listed buildings, James has built up a wealth of knowledge and experience of historic construction types and how these can be repaired and adapted to meet current standards and needs.
James has a great understanding of the analysis and design of cantilever stone staircases and is considered an expert by his peers. His interest in these stairs has extended to the design of floating, post-tensioned stone staircases.
In 2003, James joined Price & Myers. He was promoted to Associate in 2010 and became a Partner in 2018.
