Please join us in congratulating Andrew Provost, who has been promoted to the position of Head of Design at Walter Lilly.
Originally joining as a Trainee Design Manager in 2014 through our sponsored student programme, Andrew has a degree in Architectural Engineering and Design Management. Since then, he has obtained his MCIOB chartership and has a keen interest in continually enhancing his technical knowledge by engaging with manufacturers and subcontractors within the industry.
As the new Head of Design, Andrew will be responsible for leading our team of design managers and document controllers, overseeing 12-15 projects across our three sectors at any one time.
Over the next 12 months, Andrew aims to streamline the design approach at Walter Lilly so that all Design Managers are equipped with the right tools, focussed, and driven to deliver the challenging and technical design packages often commanding of our projects. Strengthening our collaborative approach with the design teams and our strong network of specialist subcontractors will be a focal point to producing technically astute, coordinated design information to enable project success.
Andrew has worked on some fantastic projects during his time with us – from a new build country home in Surrey, to leading the RIBA Stage 0 to 3 design of a new science research facility for a major client.
Andrew says “I am so excited and honoured to take on the responsibility of heading up Walter Lilly’s design department. We have a fantastic team, and I can’t wait to introduce new technology and innovation to the business to enhance and strengthen our in-house design capability.”
Andrew enjoys paddle boarding, coastal hikes, and running half and full marathons in his spare time. A little-known fact about Andrew is that at age 17, he was ranked in the top 3-5 in the country for 800m and 1500m. So going the distance combined with speed seems to have been a theme he has also followed in his career!
