The greatest satisfaction for me as an architect is the impact I can have by creating buildings that play a major part in the happiness and well-being of those who live and work in them
— Colin Powell, Director, gcp


Colin studied and worked in commercial practices in London before moving to Bath in 1989 and joining gcp in 1995. A Chartered Architect with over 30 years’ experience, Colin has completed projects in residential, health, education, hotel and leisure sectors.

Following an interest in building physics, Colin completed an MSc in Environmental Design of Buildings at Cardiff University in 2006, achieving a distinction. Extending this interest, Colin completed training with the BRE and passed the International PassivHaus Institute examination in August 2011 to become the first chartered architect in the West of England region to be a certified PassivHaus Designer.

When not at work, you might find Colin behind a camera; his monochrome photography has been published in  Black & White Photography Magazine and exhibited at the Royal West of England Academy and the Bristol Festival of Photography.
