On the new appointment, Isabelle commented:
‘I’m delighted and proud to be leading the Bath Studio. Our talented team have an exciting year ahead with unique projects in workplace, residential, leisure, technology and innovation sectors. Being recognised as Sustainability Champions at the Bath Property Awards is a real accolade and reflects my passion for protecting and enhancing the environment.

Danny Harris, who is also the current RIBA Bristol-Bath Regional Chair, added:
“I am really pleased to lead one of our Bristol studios, working across the education ‘super-sector’ on schools, colleges, higher education, technology and innovation and leisure. I have had a hand in all these sectors since joining the company. Over the past years, we have built a strong reputation nationally in these sectors. Our significant education projects within the city include Bristol Business School at UWE, the Institute for Advanced Automotive Propulsion Systems (IAAPS) at Bristol-Bath Science Park and Oasis Academy Temple Quarter. I look forward to leading our strong pipeline of teaching, research, and industry-linked projects within Bristol and the WECA region.”
