David Cox makes two senior promotions
Steven Gallagher is now a director at the Preston-based architecture firm, while Helen Knott has been named an associate.
Gallagher joined David Cox Architects in 2017 from Halsall Lloyd Partnership. Stepping up from his previous associate position, Gallagher will co-lead the studio alongside the company’s namesake, David Cox, as a director. Recent projects for Gallagher have largely revolved around student accommodation, private homes, and community-led developments.
Knott also joined David Cox Architects in 2017. Her earlier career was spent with Cassidy + Ashton, The Harris Partnership, and Bradshaw Gass & Hope. She is a certified Passive House designer and is particularly focused on low-carbon design.
“Steven and Helen have played a significant role in the practice and these promotions are richly deserved,” said director Cox.
“Broadening the identity of the business and consolidating the new senior leadership team is a positive step forward and we are all excited to shape the future of the practice together,” he continued.
David Cox Architects has a staff of eight and provides architectural design services. Notable projects include the 469-home Stoneygate Central in Preston, Ribby Hall Village’s 53,000 sq ft entertainment centre, and Wildes Hotel Group’s luxury hotel off Bridge Street in Chester.
