During his undergraduate degree he researched, ‘What are the architect’s ethical considerations when working abroad?’ This took him too him to Dubai to study and interview construction staff workers over a six week period as part of his primary investigation.

Elliott is a fast and efficient worker but also holds a very high standard for his work. He is highly adaptable in office with the ability to switch between tasks quickly, managing a small design team while acting as the BIM and artistic lead in cases.

His aspirations are to continue to learn around the discipline of architecture and taking a keen interest in current international affairs while developing a career to becoming a fully qualified architect.
