Award-winning Bristol architects O’LearyGoss have appointed two new Associates.

The appointments follow the construction of a £2.25 million visitor’s centre on Grade I Listed Clevedon Pier.

Niall Tainton and Rebecca Ridge have both been part of the team for several years, between them.

Niall, 34, he comments: “Clevedon Pier’s glass visitor’s centre is a hugely exciting project which complements the pier’s elegant structure.

“I love my role at O’LearyGoss; being involved in the design process and working on the fine details of some very interesting buildings.”

Rebecca, 28, adds: “I am delighted at my appointment.

“I’ve been project architect for a £14 million high-spec office conversion with 139 flats with roof garden and balconies and I’m thrilled that work is set to start this spring.”

Director Robert O’Leary comments: “Rebecca and Niall have worked with us for some time and really proved their professionalism, creativity and expertise.

“It’s great to have them onboard.”

The beginnings of O’LearyGoss go back to 1984 when Robert and co-director Jenny Goss married – a year before they qualified.

After working for other companies the couple launched their own practice from their converted attic during the recession in September 1991.
