Simon Bacon

BA Arch Dip Arch ARB Project Director

Simon graduated in 1997 from Manchester School of Architecture and went on to complete his studies at London Metropolitan University in 2007.

He initially worked for small Archer Architects where he gained excellent experience across a variety of sectors including residential, leisure, education, retail, industrial and commercial.  However his particular specialism lay with the retail and leisure sectors where he worked on a number of roll out programmes for clients such as Tescos and JJB Sports.

Since joining tp bennett + Engle in 2008 Simon has been involved with progressing a number of developer-led town centre regeneration schemes, working closely with clients, local authorities and end- users. Recent projects include a 260,000 sq ft retail-led mixed use scheme in Hinckley, a town centre regeneration scheme in Macclesfield, and a 160,000 sq ft extension to the Arndale Centre in Eastbourne.

He has particular interest in sustainability, an area of architecture in which he continues to develop his knowledge and understanding of new systems and technologies.
