What our staff say....

“Since joining Buttress 5 years ago, I have been given the opportunity to develop significantly as an architect. The range of projects and clients have enabled me to build in confidence and ability and as such since joining, I have progressed to a Senior Architect.

The breath and range of projects I have worked on, small to large, have enabled me to develop my skills at every stage. It also means no two days are the same which I thoroughly enjoy.

Buttress has given me the opportunity to further my experience of community consultation and engagement understanding its impact on design, which is something I feel passionately about. I have been supported to nurture this skill and with that encouragement I have grown significantly in confidence and ability and have developed great relationships with colleagues and clients.

Not only do I have a key role leading projects, I have also had an opportunity to play a part in shaping the business. Training as a coach to support colleagues and being involved in policy as part of the Working Forward team has allowed great insight into the business.

Since working at Buttress, I have developed greater understanding, confidence, and ability not only in architecture but in understanding the principles of good business. Buttress as an organization is not only invested in good architecture and developing good architects; they recognize the importance of, and actively invest in, their people."

Kim Corrall, Senior Architect
