Steve Andrews, Project Design Executive, Canary Wharf
Since rejoining in 1996, Andrew has been involved in a number of key projects as an architect and masterplanner. His work has included design and masterplanning, presenting schemes to clients and working on transportation and airport infrastructure projects as well as giving strategic advice on commercial developments for developer clients.
Andrew was the project lead on the 7 million square foot Wood Wharf Masterplan in London gaining planning permission for one of the largest undeveloped sites in East London. He was also responsible for two major schemes in New York: The masterplan for East River Waterfront that formed part of the redevelopment of downtown New York following 9/11; and a mixed-use development for Silvercup Studios. He was project architect for the BBVA Headquarters building in Mexico City during the schematic design phase and has worked on a number of UK and international schemes at competition stage, including Transbay Tower and Terminal in San Francisco, The Hong Kong Border Crossing Facility and the new Beijing Airport.
Andrew helps manage the practice’s internal resourcing, allocating staff to projects as demand for specific skills and workload changes during different phases of each job.
Andrew participates in a number of school outreach programmes and has been instrumental in finding funding for architectural education programmes in schools such as Morehouse. He is also a school governor for Christchurch CofE infant school.
