Nicola goes back to school

Continuing Professional Development

Associate Nicola Yeates has just embarked on a 2 year Part Time Master’s degree in the Conservation of Historic Buildings at Bath University.


At Western Design, Nicola is predominately responsible for overseeing, designing and submitting planning applications for the majority of the traditional builds in the office including conversions and extensions to existing historical buildings.


She has always had a keen interest in building conservation and has worked on a number or Listed Buildings throughout her career.


Nicola is excited to be extending her knowledge with further study and has come back from her first day very enthusiastic.
