etc Design is a relatively small practice and deliberately so to ensure we can give our clients the attention to detail and individual service we believe is essential to make every project special.

Leigh joined the practice in 2003, becoming Managing Director in 2017 and is responsible for developing the vision of the practice and leading the design and marketing of projects. He is directly involved throughout the project process and is passionate about the detail and ensuring we deliver buildings where the architectural vision has been carried through to completion.
Leigh’s mantra is “to strive for perfection” and encourages the talented team of architects and technologists within the practice to produce building designs that are carefully thought through and well presented, at all stages of the design process. This approach ensures our vision and intent is fully understood not only by our clients but also the rest of the design team. This has resulted in his designs being recognised for architectural awards in both residential and commercial projects.
Leigh is also directly involved in supporting and promoting the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) by being the local branch Chairman of the Wolverhampton and District Society of Architects and attending RIBA WM Regional Council meetings. He is also keen on all sporting activities and in particular a regular runner and Run Director at his local Telford parkrun as well as a black belt in Shotokan Karate.
