Our People Rachel Harmer

Rachel Harmer

Architect

Rachel joined LSI in 2014 after 8 years working in London with Smith Caradoc-Hodgkins Architects Ltd and PTP Architects London Ltd, on mixed use, commercial and residential, and high-end residential projects respectively. She spent the past four years working with the Director as the Project Architect, DTL and CA, for a £10.5m amalgamation of two 1870 town houses to create one luxury 11,000m2 home involving front and rear façade retention, a new steel frame, floor levelling,  and a basement storey for a swimming pool.

She had previous experience on an £8m, 8500m2 mixed use development comprising new build and conversion of existing buildings, as parts of a 3-phase redevelopment master plan in Covent Garden. This experience has involved working directly with clients on high-end newbuild and refurb schemes, resolving technical and detailing issues and participating in the contract administration role. Comfortable as a generalist, she particularly enjoys the detail design stage.

Since joining, Rachel has been working on a village hall extension project in North Norfolk, and a mixed-use scheme in Kensington comprising 8 apartments and ground floor commercial uses.
