Since joining the practice in 2005, Esther has been project architect on a wide range of commissions across the CCD portfolio. These include domestic extensions and barn conversions, conservation and re-purposing work on historic buildings, civic and commercial projects. Esther’s professional qualifications include BSc in Architectural Studies with honours from University of Wales Institute of Science and Technology, and Bachelor of Architecture with distinction at the University of Wales College of Cardiff. Esther has a particular interest in the contractual and legal issues surrounding the practice of architecture, and contract administration in general. In 2020, she became a member of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators and sits on the Channel Island branch committee. She is particularly interested in how truly successful design has to balance a broad range of issues such as accessibility and aesthetics, cost control and contractual requirements, form and function.
Outside of work Esther undertakes various roles within the Methodist Church and enjoys playing clarinet with Guernsey Symphonic Winds.
