Niell Bayes

Niell developed an interest in Architecture aged 11 and after completing A-levels, joined Stephen Roberts Associates as an apprentice in 1987. Whilst attending Lincoln College on a day release basis to complete courses over the next five years was necessary to attain formal qualifications, it was the extensive in-house training that was delivered by senior colleagues, with expertise in different disciplines, that was most valuable. Niell was promoted to the role of Associate in 2001 and to Junior Partner in 2005. With the retirement of two co-directors in December of 2010, Niell became the Practice’s Managing Director.

Being committed to the Practice for over 33 years, Niell strives to uphold the core values on which the Practice was founded, to broaden knowledge and understanding of design and construction and to embrace new technologies and advancements within the sector as a whole.
