Matt Tarling is a board director of Stride Treglown and the sector leader for Universities.
During the last twelve years he has worked closely with more than 20 different HE institutions on a variety of buildings nationally and internationally. He has led the teams for a wide range of academic and student accommodation facilities where he has developed a particular expertise in managing complex groups of stakeholders delivering high quality and cost effective design solutions.
Matt is currently overseeing the completion of the new Faculty of Business and Law building for the University of the West of England that is due to complete in April 2017. The project provides 17,000m2 of teaching and office accommodation over 6 floors.
Matt has won a number of RIBA awards during his career and he strongly believes that great design can significantly improve the lives of people inside and outside of a building. To achieve this outcome it is vital that groups affected by the design are consulted during the design process.
