In the Spotlight: Interview with Elliot Denby

What is your role at BTP?

My role at BTP is an Associate having recently been promoted from an Architect. Day to day involves designing schemes to meet clients’ needs whilst maintaining client relationships and building new ones. Since joining BTP Architects I have been involved in a variety of projects including social housing, extra care and conservation.

What drew you to BTP in the first place?

I wanted to work in a practice that gave me the ability to grow and push myself and work for a practice with an established stature with experience in residential and conservation. Once I came in for an interview and met the team, I knew instantly BTP Architects was a place for me. To work with an innovative and friendly team on a daily basis is a bonus! 

What has been your favourite project at BTP?

Since working at BTP, I have worked on a host of different projects learning something different from each. Some of my favourite projects to date have been working on the Cabbage Inn scheme in Netherton and Mount Street in Hyde. Both these projects were challenging in terms of design and site constraints, but also exciting to see the improvement to the local area.

What would your advice be to students considering a career in architecture?

(Run!! – haha only joking). The advice I would give to students wishing to pursue a career in architecture is to be prepared to work hard, stay on top of workload and keep the bigger picture in mind.

If you weren’t an Architect, what would you do?

I have always been very hands-on and had an interest the built environment from a young age thanks to my father’s influence so I would probably still work within the construction industry in some capacity like a carpenter.

What might someone be surprised to know about you?

I am a bit of a fitness enthusiast and over many years participated in a variety of sporting activities including playing football as part of a team and long distance running, I would like to undertake another marathon in the near future.
