David Bannister


David joined LSI Architects in 2012 and gained a Distinction in his Part 3, having previously worked on projects from domestic to masterplanning scale at Campbell Architects.

Since joining LSI, David has worked on education, health and special needs projects ranging in value from £50K to ca. £10M represented respectively by work for charity Tracks Autism, and the refurbishment of the George Green Secondary School on the Isle of Dogs– a BSF project with Bouygues UK. For the £350K overhaul of dining facilities at the Maudsley Hospital – involving significant consultation –  he acted as the project architect throughout.

Other refurbishment projects David has managed include the conversion of a 1990s Wimbledon office into a school for Autistic children, and the refurbishment and extension of Bromley Hall – a 1960s Grade II special needs school – into a primary school for Tower Hamlets. A £3.6m Primary School expansion in Colchester has provided David with experience of new-build, and is currently on site under a Smarte East D&B framework contract.

David co-designed a winning entry in London’s ‘ArchiKids Festival 2013’.
