Based in our Bristol office, Toni Riddiford specialises in workplace and retail, but has broad sector experience, including residential and education. She brings this all together to lead multi-disciplinary teams on mixed-use projects from inception through to completion.
She plays a key role in our private sector team. Toni has delivered appraisals for landmark projects in Bristol and Cardiff, and is currently project architect for a several developments at Bristol Airport, including their new Headquarters.
We consider ourselves lucky – Toni’s childhood dream was to become a lawyer. She thankfully discovered the world of architecture and has never looked back. But, her lawyerly aspirations have not left her. She is an excellent listener, and takes great satisfaction in connecting the dots on a ‘case’; working closely with the client and design team but also occupiers and communities, to design and deliver vibrant and well-considered buildings and places.
Outside Stride Treglown, Toni is widening her influence and building her network, with regular attendance at industry networking and development events, BCO last year in Berlin being one of her favourites.
Toni’s efforts have been recognised with her promotion to Associate this year, and we hope that BCO NextGen add to that recognition at the ceremony on 1st November.
Gareth Mason nominated Toni for this award, which recognises someone aged under 35 who has made an outstanding contribution to the office sector in the region, in appreciation of the fantastic contribution she has made this year.
