Beginning his career in 2003 as an Architectural Technician, Dan then qualified in 2017 as a Chartered Architectural Technologist earning his MCIAT status. Dan spent most of his working career with Parsons + Whittley Architects Ltd, becoming a Director of the practice. When the practice wound up due to the retirement of the principal Directors, Dan decided to develop his own company, establishing Void Architecture with the aim of becoming one of Norfolk’s leading Architectural Practices.
Dan has built solid expertise within conceptual and detailed technical design, particularly within sustainable buildings, including certified Passivhaus construction in various forms and materials. Dan is also highly experienced within tendering and design team project management, including administration of a contract during the construction process.

Personal Commitment We engage actively in what we do and hold
ourselves accountable to deliver what we have promised. We believe
in and care passionately about both individual and joint ownership.
We go the extra mile. We work hard, productively and efficiently to
delight clients and develop the reputation of Void Architecture.
Efficiency We endeavour to ensure projects are completed on time
and on budget. We make efficient use of our time so that projects
deliver a profit. We take care to keep note of our time spent on
projects to ensure any time shortfalls are highlighted and assessed in
a timely manner.
Responsibility We take personal responsibility for all our work, where
mistakes happen we quickly look to correct them and learn from
them, so not to repeat them. Where we face problems, we always
respond positively and look for solutions.
Fun We work hard but remember that work should also be enjoyable
and rewarding from a personal viewpoint. We occasionally
participate in shared activities outside of the routine office
environment to build and maintain a positive spirit and culture. We
remember to make the time to celebrate our successes.
Excellence We work to the highest industry quality and standards. We
are committed to providing quality services and documentation, to
provide a smooth, low stress project and build. We consistently strive
to get things right first time, meeting and exceeding client needs and
expectations, also optimising our efficiency. We follow systems and
procedures, together with creativity, to achieve approvals/outcomes
in line with, if not beyond, the brief. We continuously strive to operate
to Void Architecture’s high standards.
Communication We speak positively of fellow team members, clients
and Void Architecture in both public and private. We acknowledge
what is being said as true for the speaker at that moment and take
responsibility for responses to my communication. We apologise for
any upsets or miscommunications and then look for a solution. We
continue to communicate clearly, positively and respectfully at all
times. We only discuss concerns in private with the person involved.
Teamwork & Collaboration We work collectively to find creative
solutions using the shared knowledge and experience of the team.
Listening to each other with a positive outlook, we strive to continue
to learn and develop individually and as a team. We support our
colleagues, and encourage them to perform at their best.
