Space Group Appoints New Project Lead For Space Architects

Space Group has appointed Nigel Tye as Associate Director to lead the design delivery of projects within its Space Architects division. Far from your typical architects practice, Space Architects boasts a team of talented forward thinkers who work with clients to understand their needs and deliver beyond their expectations. Being part of the wider Space Group network affords them the luxury of advanced technologies to deliver their design-led projects for a portfolio of global clients.

A qualified architect with over 17 years’ experience in practice, Nigel will lead on large complex projects, feasibility studies and masterplanning. Since joining Space Group in late 2016, Nigel has been instrumental in successfully steering the University of Hull’s new sports centre through design development, client approvals, planning submission and tender processes, plus winning the successful bid for a significant teaching hub at the heart of the University of Newcastle’s campus.

Prior to his current role, Nigel spent 10 years as Director at FaulknerBrowns delivering projects in the leisure, higher education and commercial sectors, including; the multi award winning Derby Arena, University of Surrey Sports Park, and the Dubai Aquatics Complex.

Rob Charton, CEO for Space Group said: “Nigel joins us with an enviable reputation and wealth of experience, he is genuine, commercially focused and known for his collaborative project management style, which are all strengths that align closely with our Space Group culture”.

“His experience of managing diverse and complex projects, in addition to his extensive knowledge of the core sectors within the built environment in which we operate, makes Nigel the perfect addition to our team”

Nigel commented: “I’ve admired the achievements of Space Group over the years and one of the things I was looking forward to the most was being part of a team that has an enormous capacity to innovate”.

 “The work here at Space Group is underpinned by true teamwork – the commitment and shared responsibility I have seen from my fellow ‘Spacers’ is truly inspiring. It has been exceptionally easy to settle in as there is an energetic vibe to the place, where everyone is aware of the important role they play in the team, all boosted by great communication across the groups’ network – including Pizza Fridays!”.

Space Architects is not just another team of designers, it is a team of thinkers, offering an unrivalled ability to blend creativity with technology to achieve truly sustainable design.
