New year, new director, new offices

John Gilbert Architects is pleased to announce the merger of John Gilbert Architects with Locate Architects.

Chris Morgan of Locate Architects joins John Gilbert Architects as a Director. Chris will support a number of JGA’s existing and new clients across Scotland, reinforcing our building performance team and establishing our Stirling office.

Chris Morgan is a qualified architect with over 25 years of experience in ecological design and sustainable development. He has maintained a range of experience from masterplanning and energy infrastructure to award-winning and innovative architecture, at a variety of scales, as well as research and teaching.

Previously Chair of the Scottish Ecological Design Association (SEDA), Chris is one of only five architects accredited to ‘advanced’ level by the RIAS and is a design review panelist for Architecture + Design Scotland. He has also worked as a builder and holds additional certification in Passivhaus Design, Building Biology (Buildings and Health) and Permaculture. Chris currently works part-time as a lecturer at Macintosh Environmental Research Unit (MEARU) at Glasgow School of Art.

As our workload across Scotland’s central belt increases we are establishing satellite offices in Stirling and Edinburgh. Our contact numbers for these offices are:

  • Stirling: 01786 625 083
  • Edinburgh: 0131 235 2583

We are delighted to start 2016 with this positive news and look forward to working with clients new and old on some exciting projects.
