John Stolwood Personal Statement

I started working in an Architects practice from the age of 16 when I left secondary school. I have continuously worked and studied Architecture ever since.

I have worked in large and small Architects Practices on a range of different project types include: residential, commercial, education, community and car show room to name a few. I have over 10 years local authority experience, where I acted as lead consultant in projects and managed design teams within a project budget. The contract value of the projects I have acted as lead consultant through all the RIBA work stages (inception to completion) range from £15,000 – £8 million. These projects have been of different contract types for example JCT standard form of contracts and Design and Build contracts.

I have taken the progressive step of starting my own Chartered Architects practice, where I can apply my skills without constraint.

In my spare time I am a cub scout leader at the 1st Shipston Scout Pack where I organise and lead a program of exciting, engaging activities for the children.  I am a volunteer for the Heart of England Forest where I have planted hundreds of trees. I relish this unique opportunity to give my time and effort to create valuable, local woodland spaces for future generations to enjoy.

Emma Stolwood Personal Statement

I have worked as a landscape architect for the last 12 years. I entered the profession following the completion of a Graduate Diploma in Landscape Architecture, which I studied following my original BSc in Geography.

I have worked in a variety of landscape practices including local authority, Groundwork, private practices, providing me with the essential experience required to set up a sucessful architectural practice. For the last 3 years I have worked on a freelance basis and have worked for a variety of local clients . During this time, I have gained valuable experience of networking, meeting new clients and running my own business. I have significant LVIA experience (Landscape and Visual Impact Assessment) on a wide range of schemes, most notably renewable energy developments and residential schemes.  I have project managed  several urban environmental improvement schemes as detailed in the projects page.

In my spare time I have a variety of interests including yoga, art, walking and exploring the beautiful Cotswolds. I am a commitee member of the Landscape Institute Midlands Branch (LIM) where I regularly organise and attend events to keep up to date with developments in the Landscape Industry. I am also a member of SAFAG (Shipston and Area Flood Action Group), a local, voluntary community group working to identify and implement a series of flood reduction measures with the Shipston area to reduce the risk of flooding. I have recently joined TDAG (Trees and Design Action Group), a pioneering group of individuals, professionals and organisations from wide ranging disciplines in both the public and private sectors to increase awareness of the role of trees in the built environment.
