Tim Coleridge


Tim is an Architect and Programme Leader of the Msc:SABE ( Sustainability and Adaptation in the Built Environment ) by attendance and distance learning, and a BREEAM Offices Assessor.  


Prior to joining CAT, Tim spent eight years in practice at Hopkins Architects in London where he led design teams working on projects ranging widely in programme and scale. Each of these projects tackled head-on in different, but equally ambitious ways, the real world challenges of sustainable and low energy design.


After qualifying as a BREEAM Assessor in 2007, Tim took on the role of Hopkins’ In-house Sustainability Specialist. Using his specialist knowledge he provided specific environmental design input across the office and advised teams within the practice working on projects aiming for BREEAM certification. As an integral part of this role, Tim was involved in research and development with industry and attended training, conferences and seminars with specialists and peers.  Tim was also a Scheme Coordinator and Mentor of Hopkins Architects RIBA Part III candidate professional studies support scheme.


Tim previously worked for Foster & Partners, London, for two years, and for a sole practitioner in Gloucestershire.


Tim studied at The Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL, and Oxford Brookes University, and before joining the MSc staff at CAT he has taught at UCL, The University of Nottingham and Kingston University.  During his time in London, Tim was also a tutor on the annual Junior Open House programme, which brings children aged 8-16 into contact with key pieces of architecture through building exploration and classroom design workshops.


Following his relocation to mid-Wales from London in September 2009, Tim is developing an architectural practice in a setting, both physical and cultural, which inspires and supports his concern for environmental issues.  Tim’s professional training, practice and teaching have given him a wide range of architectural experience, access to a wealth of knowledge and ideas, and some very valuable contacts, all particularly in the area of sustainable design.
