Watson Batty Architects has reported strong business performance as it continues to expand its senior team and expertise. Having achieved its 2022/2023 turnover target of £2.94m, despite the continued market uncertainty, the practice is trading ten percent ahead of its £3.3m turnover target just six months into its current financial year.

To support its strong business pipeline, Watson Batty has made a number of senior appointments. John Nall is the latest person to join the team as a highly experienced architect with particular skills in the high-rise sector. His involvement with several prestige projects, overseeing delivery of around 2,000 Build-to-Rent (BTR) homes in Leeds over the last four years, brings a significant boost to the Watson Batty residential design proposition.

Peter White, Managing Director at Watson Batty, said:

“We are very pleased to be able to report sustained growth at Watson Batty with an increasing workload across both Leeds and Loughborough. This is boosted particularly through the education, leisure, later living and care sectors where there is continued client investment and a commitment to deliver, UK wide.”

Recent project awards for Watson Batty include new educational facilities with Tilbury Douglas and ISG, as well as further successes with Algeco via the Modern Methods of Construction framework.

Watson Batty Architects was established more than 45 years ago as a future focused business offering architectural, interior design and master planning solutions for all sectors.

Its team is also involved with the RIBA Student Mentoring Programme at the University of Sheffield, De Montfort University, Leicester and Loughborough University.
