Situated in the heart of Bristol, Pick Everard’s 15th national office will be headed up by director, Kieran Bradley.
Kieran, who has joined Pick Everard from Chapman Taylor, is set to use his 23 years of industry experience to grow the company’s offering in Bristol to support existing clients and form new relationships with local clients.
Pick Everard join the vibrant business community located in The Generator Building in the Waterfront Quarter, a stunning historic building with state-of-the-art studio space commensurate with the collaborative environment the consultancy consistently creates nationwide.
Kieran said: “I am delighted to have joined Pick Everard with the opportunity to head up our Bristol City office and look forward to using my local connections and knowledge to support the success of our expansion in the Southwest. We have broad experience across sectors including retail, workplace, residential, healthcare, education, defence, and science & technology and provide valuable professional advice and services for public and private sector organisations looking to invest locally.
“Bristol holds an extraordinary pool of talent and we are looking forward to further expanding the team by recruiting exceptional individuals who share the passion for the built environment found at Pick Everard. Today it is ever more important that the built environment is developed in a responsible manner, delivering absolute value to our clients businesses and to the environment, an objective that is embodied by Pick Everard’s People & Planet First commitment.”
As a multi-disciplinary practice, Pick Everard already has a strong team of design and management services located on the outskirts of Bristol at Beaufort Office Park. The new office is strategically placed to serve Bristol clients and to further accommodate a rapidly growing team, which has seen a number of key appointments, and achieved a doubling of local architectural resource in the last 6 months.
Andy Almond, Partner at Pick Everard, said: “Bristol is an important location for us. It is an exciting, forward-looking city with inspiring ambition synonymous with that of our own business and people. Being in the city centre provides the opportunity for us to strengthen the service and support we provide to new and established client relationships, bringing our own skills and innovation to help realise their visions for the future. We are also delighted to be able to invest in the careers of people in the city, bringing exciting opportunities to talented people across all disciplines.
“We are very pleased to have Kieran as our new Director, working closely with an excellent team which is already established in this stunning new office. Clockwise have done a fantastic job with the refurbishment and have given us a very warm welcome.”

The history of The Generator Building, found in the heart of the city and once home to the generator that powered the city’s tram system, is steeped in history and is the ideal place for us to lead on the future of a proud community.
