He has extensive experience in providing specialist advice to or personally running a large number and variety of conservation based projects.

Geoffrey initially qualified and worked in Liverpool in private architectural practices and also a local authority’s planning department. He worked for Ken Martin who was one of the few voices championing the creative use of redundant and historic buildings in the 1970’s and who inspired Geoffrey’s passion for Building Conservation.

Geoffrey went on to establish his own practice in 2009 and soon after joined forces with Kenny Brown with whom he had worked previously for many years to form Holland Brown Architects.
