Marion joined LSI in 2000 as an exchange student after completing her studies in Germany. After two years’ experience as an architectural assistant at LSI, she registered in the UK in 2002, and became a member of RIBA in 2005.
She has worked on a wide variety of projects in such sectors as primary, secondary, further and higher education, workplace, health care, and community covering all work stages. Projects have incorporated listed buildings, refurbishment, remodelling, extensions, and newbuilds, and included some of the highest value projects in the practice in recent years (£25M+). Marion is comfortable with translating initial design into production information, and with handling the delivery of projects through traditional and D&B procurement paths, and she has spent time in the London studio bolstering the technical capability.
Involved in the execution of over a dozen significant buildings, she is familiar with steel and concrete frame, tunnel-form concrete and cross-laminated timber construction. Marion is very thorough, and able to draw on a wide breadth of experience making her a valued member of any team.
Archbishop Sancroft High School
Following the preparation of a detailed premises development plan and in discussions with the School and the Diocese, a new build teaching facility for Food Technology and Creative Media Studies together with a community room was required, in order to meet the planned expansion in the School’s curriculum.
A part-newbuild, part-refurbishment of a 3-storey Victorian school building for Bouygues UK under a BSF framework, provided the main PRU for the Borough. LSI revisited the design from Stage 1, remaining involved to completion, with the school operational throughout. The 2-badminton court hall is clad in a striking, ‘chameleon’ rainscreen.
George Green’s School
LSI worked with Bouygues, and school staff, to revisit ambitious £18M BSF plans to overhaul the only secondary school on the Isle of Dogs – a pioneering 1970s LCC split-level concrete-framed, concrete-block design with many community facilities but failing environmental performance– and prepared a 4-phase package of repairs and enhancements for £8.5M.
An office development comprising two 30,000 sq ft office buildings, set against two Listed Buildings and an ancient monument.
