Who is the man behind Global Architecture Limited?
Global Architecture Limited is a RIBA Chartered Practice founded in 2017 by Jonathan Watts, a RIBA Chartered Architect. He has worked in the design and construction industry for the past 25 years and has experience in both pre and post-contract works across all stages of a project. Jonathan has a keen interest in design management and coordination, which he considers to be the back-bone of any project.
More recently, Jonathan has been based in the Middle East where for over a decade, he has worked on and directed projects across the Persian Gulf in countries such as Kuwait, the UAE, Qatar and Bahrain. The roles held whilst working in the Middle East have been on both the client and consultant side - developing projects of significant scale, within the retail, hospitality and entertainment sectors.
The basis of his career to date has principally been managing multi-disciplinary teams and overseeing several project managers to deliver projects across various sectors. Such management has also required him to carry out extensive team planning, project programming and monitoring of working capital/project budgets for both regeneration and new community developments.
Jonathan has extensive experience in feasibility studies, master planning, design development and onsite delivery. He has a keen eye for detail and ensures a diligent approach to all aspects of a project. With such a wealth of experience he has the ability and passion to deliver projects enriched by his background in client advisory services, community planning and design management.
