Education:

     
 

George gained his honours degrees in Architectural Studies at Liverpool University from 1971 – 1977. He spent the next few years gaining experience in residential renovations, new built and luxury apartments and, for a few months, working for a medium size contractor thus refining his architectural skills and knowledge from different perspectives.

George is registered with ARB (Architects Registration Board) since 1979 and is a member of the RIBA (Royal Institute of British Architects) since 1980. 

George is also registered as an Architect with the Cyprus Technical Board.

Product Innovation:

In the early 1990s George and his late brother Andrew, also an architect, were the leading members of a consortium aiming to introduce from Canada the technology to produce fibreglass profiles for fabricating doors and windows.

Fibreglass pultrusions as developed by a Canadian inventor were considered the most innovative product of the century and could potentially become “the” material for door and window frames. For legal and other technical reasons, this venture did not proceed in the UK. Interestingly, though, twenty years later, others in Britain are treading on the same trail.

GP is still convinced that fibreglass is the perfect environmentally eco friendly material commercially available today to replace the continued use of uPVC and aluminium sections for fenestrations.

 

 

   
 

CAD & Programming:

George realised the potential of the PC and when bespoke programming was still in its infancy he developed one of the first programmes for architects to design steel beams. This was reviewed and highly acclaimed in Building Design in July 1988 by Mr Richard Twinch. Sadly, only a draft of that review remains in our archives. At the time it was considered one more reason for architects to invest in computers!

Later on, the same enthusiasm saw GP envelop CAD. His pioneering practice was one of the first to abandon the drawing boards and from as early as 1986 each architect was working in front of a 21” PC monitor. This was at a time when most larger practices couldn’t see the need for more than one solitary CAD station in all their offices!

GP's interest in computers and programming continued by improving on the offered CAD package by writing small sub-routines to speed the drafting process. With these improvements, George ensured that each of his architects performed well above the expected norm.

Nowadays, GP Architects make use of 3D software and integrating different packages to produce photorealistic images when required.
