Architecture practice Nightingale Associates has recruited Chris Brightman-White as science sector lead in its Liverpool Studio.
Brightman-White had his own practice based in Stratford-upon-Avon for five years prior to joining Nightingale and before that worked for Amec and Fairhurst Design Group.
He worked on research and development facilities for Eisai, GSK, MSD and Pfizer both in UK and Europe, as well as neuroscience and cancer research facilities for University College Cork.
At Nightingale, Brightman-White will work with science practice lead, Adrian Gainer on a variety of schemes in biotech, pharma, industrial medical and research facilities within education. These projects include the new life sciences centre for the universities and local NHS trusts, the first phase of which is currently pending a planning decision.
Nightingale, part of the Canadian IBI Group, is currently involved in the 'four labs, four cities' project, which is a comparative analysis of laboratories in Oxford, Toronto, New York and Vancouver.
Nightingale also has a studio in Rochdale.
