DB3 Team

New DB3 management structure announced

The Leeds studio of DarntonB3 Architecture is pleased to be able to confirm its new management structure following recent retirements.

Acting as Headquarter for the Architecture lead consultancy since its incorporation, the Leeds studio has continued to operate remotely, throughout the Covid-19 crisis, delivering ongoing services to its many clients, in collaboration with its six sister offices throughout the UK.

Nathan McNamara has re-joined the firm, after an absence of about 10 years, in which time he has acted at Director level for major UK and European based contracting firms, including most recently with ISG. Nathan has taken up the post of Joint Managing Director alongside Alistair Hamilton, taking on the operational management of the firm.

Tom Hill has been appointed as Director responsible for the Leeds studio, joining us from RPS Group where he built up their architectural team in Leeds. Tom is a Chartered Architect with considerable cross-sector expertise. Nathan and Tom add a new energy and fresh ideas to the firm, which has ambitious plans for the future.
