Declan has been with the LCA team since February 2016. During this time, he has supported a wide client base, working on everything from placemaking and corporate briefs, to planning and transport-focused projects.
He is also at present working with British Land on its 53-acre Canada Water Masterplan and Ealing town centre projects, the City of London on its plans for Smithfield Market and London Wall West, and on a corporate brief to support developer, Stanhope, among others. He has previously supported Quintain on its placemaking activities at Wembley Park and with HB Reavis to build its reputation in the UK.
Prior to joining LCA Declan worked at a national public affairs agency based in the City, having graduated from the University of Sussex with a Joint Honours Degree in International Relations and Sociology.
In July 2017 Declan won the International Building Press (IBP) Young Communicator of the Year award and has gone on to speak at panel events alongside journalists covering issues relating to the built environment.
Outside of work Declan can be found using his communications skills to explain to people why - as a Surrey boy - he is a lifelong Manchester United fan.
