Lisa Young Architect MA(hons) MArch ARB




"Lisa is a committed and hard working architect with a good eye for design."

Peter McLaughlin, John McAslan and Partners, 2011
"Lisa's attention to detail throughout the whole project coupled with her organisation, has provided us with a high level of confidence and has enabled timescales to be adhered to and deadlines to be met. In my professional career as a chartered surveyor, I have rarely encountered such a driven individual whose interpersonal skills have shown willingness to accept responsibility, initiative in problem solving, knowledge of core competencies, reliability and the ability to either work within a team or individually, without directions. At all times we have been kept updated and informed of progress and the detailed input provided on all levels, from design inception, to issued architects instructions has been outstanding.

We have not taken on a project of this type and size previously and Lisa's exceptional design skills coupled with a can do attitude, enabled our requirements and key objectives to not only be realised but to surpass all expectation. From the outset our key considerations have been met through clear and continued communication and Lisa's skills of listening to our requirements and thereafter providing a number of differing solutions, has been invaluable

"Lisa worked with us during 2010 and was an outstanding member of staff. She settled quickly into the team and immediately took responsibility for putting together the production information for The Flower House. This is an exemplar sustainable house, part of Scotland's Housing Expo, and presented a challenging exercise, requiring the researching and detailing several new technologies. Lisa handled this deftly without the need for close supervision producing a comprehensive set of documents. Subsequently, Lisa was given responsibility to put together and submit Planning Applications and Building Control submissions for several domestic projects. This she did thoroughly and with ease. 

Lisa has benefited from having worked in a number of different office contexts demonstrating mature architectural skills and an ability to adapt readily to a new situation. She has a conscientious and professional approach and I would have no hesitation in recommending her.

Andrew Burridge, A+J Burridge, Edinburgh, 2011

"Lisa performed all her responsibilities with diligence, professionalism and a meticulous attention to detail; she was an extremely valuable asset to the office."
