Our People Tim Pickbourne

Tim Pickbourne

Senior Architectural Technician

Tim joined LSI in 2011 as a senior architectural technician with 25 years of experience, mostly working for a leading Manchester design practice, Stephenson Bell, with a reputation for thorough detailing. He brought wide-ranging experience particularly in the housing sector, having worked on refurbishments and newbuilds for companies such as Berkeley Homes and Urban Splash.

At LSI, he has prepared external envelope packages for the new Queensmill ASD School in Shepherd’s Bush, drawing on his experience of handling the window and zinc roof packages for the £26M Chetham’s School of Music, Manchester.

His principal project since arriving has been the £4M Sole Bay Health Centre, a D&B project bringing together a range of primary and community healthcare services including GP surgery and dispensary. Tim produced most of the production information, then fulfilled a novated role assisting the contractor with the implementation.

In the time Tim has been at LSI he has become proficient in the use of ArchiCad as LSI’s primary platform, and now provides a combination of hands-on detailing, support to juniors, and knowledgeable engagement with the delivery process.
