Following the retirement of longstanding practice director John Prichard, Lloyd Evans Prichard Ltd are delighted to announce the appointment of Mark Pearce as director who joins Adrian Pearson.

John had been a Director of the company for over twenty five years and along with Adrian had overseen the successful transformation from a general practice into a specialist in the conservation and heritage sector. LEP are now regarded as one of the leading conservation architects in the North West region. The new management structure will allow the practice to capitalise on their national reputation for quality and consistency into the coming decades.

Adrian Pearson said:

“Having worked with John for over twenty five years I am very sad that he has decided to step down but can fully appreciate that he has truly earned his retirement. I know he is looking forward to spending more time at his house on the west coast of France but can assure him that he has left his legacy in safe hands.”

Over the years John and I have been very involved and vocal in our commitment to training and accreditation. Currently, all our senior staff are accredited in building conservation through either the AABC, RIBA or RICS accreditation schemes. We continue to ensure that we are familiar with current developments so that we can continue to provide a consistently excellent service to all of our clients. I believe that Mark’s experience and expertise with both secular and ecclesiastical listed buildings, and in embracing the dialogue between historic and modern, will reinforce and greatly aid the development of the practice. This will assist in fostering the very positive relationships we have with both current and future clients as we move the practice forward following John’s retirement.

Mark and I are looking forward to the challenge of developing the business over the coming years. Despite the current uncertainty surrounding Brexit we are confident that our expertise and valued client list will allow us to exploit all opportunities in the heritage and conservation sector. We know we can continue to rely on John’s knowledge and look forward to working with him on current and future projects over the coming years.”

John Prichard said:

“It is with some regret that I relinquish my directorship at LEP but am confident the new management structure will allow the practice to flourish and progress. I will continue to be involved in the practice on a consultancy basis for the foreseeable future but am nevertheless looking forward to spending more time in France renovating the cottage which I have bought. I wish Adrian and Mark all the best in their efforts to develop new business and in serving our established valued client base.”
