Kieran Lilley

Divisional Director

I am a Divisional Director and the sector leader for student living. I joined Strides as a Part 1 in 1999 and have worked my way up through the practice to my current role.

Since 2004 I have been responsible for the design and delivery of over 6000 student bedrooms. My primary focus is on private student accommodation developments, in city-centre brownfield sites. I recently secured planning permission for my largest scheme to date the 1116 bedroom Bishop Gate scheme in Coventry.

I take pride in the fact we have designed more student bedrooms than any other UK practice and are recognised as industry leaders in the sector. Our experience and knowledge allows us to identify and shape current trends providing customised and innovative solutions to each of our clients.

Outside of work I do my best to keep fit, making use of the fantastic countryside to the south of Bristol either on my mountain bike or out trail running. My two year old son also keeps me on my toes.
