After 10 successful years as a Director of rpa:architecture, Martin Playford has been promoted to the role of Managing Director to spearhead the continued growth of the business and make rpa:architecture 'architect of choice'.

rpa:architecture is a leading practice in the residential market and Playford is leading the firm in a forward thinking strategy of diversifying the business into other sectors such as industrial and commercial property architecture.

Playford's main responsibilities include leading a team of over 20 staff in the UK as well as overseeing the South African office in Cape Town. rpa:architecture has grown steadily over the past for years and Playford will play a key role in managing the quality standards, procedures, resources and commercial revenue.

Early priorities will include strategically expanding the business by recruiting senior directors in addition to taking a hands-on approach with his team on some of the larger projects. This includes the redevelopment of a part of former RAF Farnborough airfield to provide 500 new homes which are a mixture of private sale and social housing.
