New Director for Stephen George + Partners’ industrial team

Luke Abbott

Stephen George + Partners (SGP), the architectural practice, has appointed Luke Abbott as Studio Director, based at their Leicester office.

Luke will be working with Partner Marcus Madden-Smith in SGP’s industrial and logistics sector group. In addition to managing a team, Luke will be involved in client liaison, feasibility studies, concept design, and plans of works.

Luke said: “I was attracted to SGP as I knew them as an established practice, but with an ambition to expand and the resources and talent to make that expansion work. I’ve designed buildings across many sectors but am now looking forward to focusing my skills in the industrial and logistics market.”

Marcus Madden-Smith said: “Luke will be a great asset to the practice, bringing years of management and technical expertise to SGP. Industrial and logistics is a core sector for us, and one where we are well-known for our ability to deliver client requirements, from a range of building sizes and complexities.”

Luke joins SGP from Roger Coy Partnership where he was Director of Architecture, combining team leadership with multi sector experience including education, healthcare and residential, as well as commercial.

In addition to Luke’s appointment, SGP’s Leicester team has been further enhanced with the news that Nita Varia, Principal Architect, and Satnam Flora, Architect, have been promoted to the level of Associate.
