Manuel Atkinson

BA (Hons), M.Arch, ARB, RIBA.

I joined BTP in 2008, qualified as an Architect in 2013, was promoted to Associate in June 2014 and became a Director in 2017. During the past 10 years I have gained extensive knowledge in different Design Criteria for housing; such as HQI, DQS, Lifetime Homes and the Building Regulations.

I have a particular specialism in sustainability and have gained accreditation as a 'Code for Sustainable Homes', 'Energy' and 'Home Quality Mark' Assessor. I am heavily involved in all sustainability aspects within the office and regularly develop Strategies to achieve our client's ambitions and satisfy statutory requirements imposed by planning.

Over the past 3 years, I have been heavily involved in improving BTP's BIM (Building Information Modelling) credentials and have gained numerous qualifications through the BRE to manage the BIM process and workflow. Amongst these, I was the 7th person in the Country to be accredited to carry out the BIM roles of TIM (Task Information Manager) and PIM (Project Information Manager). My advanced knowledge in BIM has also resulted in me delivering a number of training sessions, CPD's and workshops to RP clients and Contractors.
