Andrew draws on experience to gain architectural qualification

Published September 3rd, 2013

A Shropshire architectural technician has passed his professional assessment to become a qualified chartered architectural technologist.

The chartered qualification is a rigorous quality assured performance assessment designed to recognise the diversity of architectural technology and Andrew Beeston, who works in the planning team at Berrys, now becomes a full member of the Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists.

“Andrew is a key member of our planning team and we congratulate him on his achievements,” said Stephen Locke, Berrys’ partner in charge of planning at the Shrewsbury office.

“He has excellent drawing and design skills and his new chartered status will be extremely beneficial to him personally and the team as a whole,” he said.


Andrew has more than 12 years experience in drawing and design and he uses the latest design software making the design work quick and efficient. His appointment at Berrys 18 months ago has aided the expansion of the planning team.

“He is an essential part of the planning team, supporting the department in production of drawings and designs and also working independently with private clients on residential and commercial building projects,” Stephen said.

“The construction industry is developing continually and Andrew has the skill and knowledge to understand the complex issues that lie ahead as the industry embraces the need for energy efficiency and sustainability,” Stephen said.

“Having a skilled architectural technologist in our team means we can offer a complete service to our clients from initial site recommendations and project design through to obtaining planning consent and project management.”
