Introducing Max Fordham's New Senior Partners
27 August 2019
We are delighted to announce that David Littler and Matthew Oliver were made Senior Partners at this year's annual Partners' Meeting.
David Littler has been at Max Fordham for over 13 years, in two separate stints, and has worked in building services engineering and sustainability for 30 years. He originally joined Max Fordham in 1989, becoming a Partner in 1994 before moving to Hong Kong in 2010. On his return to the UK in 2017, David rejoined Max Fordham and quickly became an integral member of the practice. David clearly communicates engineering ideas so that they can be understood by the whole team and embedded into the design to produce better buildings. David leads the practice's approach to winning new work and is also responsible for the practice's work in the masterplanning and hotel sectors.
"My aim on every project is to integrate the building services engineering and sustainability approach with the other design team disciplines, to enhance the architecture and produce higher value solutions for clients."
Matt Oliver has been at Max Fordham for over 18 years, joining in 2001 after completing his MSc in Renewable Energy and the Environment. Matt has worked on a wide range of projects across the cultural, heritage, residential, educational and workspace sectors, and these have ranged from small refurbishments and fit-outs, to very large housing regenerations and office headquarters. Matt now co-leads the practice's delivery of residential projects and leads a team of engineers in our London office.
"I like to develop simple and elegant designs in collaboration with the rest of the design team. The key to this is being proactive at an early stage and communicating strategies, requirements, parameters, space planning in a simple and timely manner."
