Daryl Le-Vine from Martin Walsh Architectural (MWA), one of the region’s leading architectural firms, has been awarded a distinction and the coveted External Examiners Award from Huddersfield University after completing his Masters in Architecture with International Accreditation to become a RIBA (Royal Institute of British Architects) Chartered Architect.
Daryl, who has spent the last two and a half years combining study with full and part-time employment at the Dewsbury based architects, achieved the examiners accolade for outstanding understanding and experience of the Masters in Architecture course.
Having worked through all stages of construction from early feasibility proposals to delivering completed schemes on site, Daryl will now take on new challenges, working on larger schemes and actively engaging with clients to secure new projects for the practice.
During his studies Daryl used his work with the Heritage Lottery Funded Townscape Initiative as a basis for his case study, enhancing his conservation and restoration knowledge which has provided him with additional skills in this specialised sector of construction.
