James Elliott

BA (Hons)

Prior to joining tp bennett, James worked for top international architectural practices and boutique studios alike, gaining a solid background in design and architecture projects that included retail, residential sectors and leisure schemes including the refurbishment of Cunard’s QEII ocean liner.

At the company since 2006, James has helped deliver over 6 million square feet of commercial space in the UK alone, using his comprehensive design experience to tailor briefs to clients’ specific requirements – a sensitivity that has led to several repeat commissions.

James has also worked on many international projects and is responsible for establishing tp bennett’s Russian office in Moscow, where he managed projects for BNP Paribas, Unilever, Aeroflot and Pfizer. He has also shared his considerable experience with contributions to the BCO’s Guide to Fit Out handbook.
