Planning and design consultancy Terence O’Rourke has recruited three more staff for its London office.

 

Following several recent high-profile successes throughout the UK, the company has strengthened its permanent design team in London with the addition of two Associate Directors for Architecture, Oliver Osborne and Ramsey Yassa. To assist further with the team’s increasing urban design work, Freddy Hedberg has been recruited as a Graduate Urban Designer.

 

Oliver comes to Terence O’Rourke from White Arkitekter, bringing with him a wealth of experience in residential, commercial and education schemes, including several large-scale regeneration projects.

 

Ramsey joins the team from HOK where he worked as an architect on prestigious schemes such as Expo 2020, Barcelona Arena and Great Ormond Street Hospital.

 

Freddy graduated last year from Oxford Brookes University with a First Class Masters degree in Urban Planning.

 

TOR’s Director of Architecture, Terry Williams, said “We are delighted to welcome such talented and highly respected professionals to our team, at a time when the demand for our unique approach to design and planning has never been in greater demand.”

 

“Ramsey, Oliver and Freddy join us at an exciting time for TOR, where we are gaining high profile large-scale planning consents, winning major awards for our architecture work and celebrating many of our top projects completing this year. We have many challenging and exciting projects in the pipeline for them to get involved in!”

 

In the last month alone, Terence O’Rourke has gained planning permission for more than 6000 new homes, has won an award as Architectural Practice of the year and was commended by the Prime Minister for the design of the Farnborough International Exhibition and Conference Centre, at the Farnborough Airshow.
