Mark & Tim started their architectural careers working for a commercial practice in Leeds where Tim’s father, Peter, was a partner. There they worked in separate teams on large retail units, offices and factories around the country. Following a major upheaval early in 1983 both left, Tim starting a practice with his father and Mark practicing as a sole trader. Over the years they collaborated on larger schemes and finally on Peter’s retirement they merged to form Wilson Kennett Partnership in 1996.

We have knowledge and experience in designing low energy use buildings where considerable reductions have been made in the energy use compared to average buildings. As members of the AECB (Association of Environment Conscious Building) we know that low energy design need not mean a high cost. Sustainability is a fundamental aspect of buildings. It is as an opportunity to add value and enhance the environment. By paying attention to good buildable details, high levels of insulation, orientation, solar gain, landscaping and shielding, ventilation strategy and the differing spatial requirements much can be achieved. We look at materials and renewable energy sources and consider the maintenance, source and life span of materials.
