Bill is a Senior Partner of the Halsall Lloyd Partnership. He has promoted the practice from a small local architectural practice to a nationally based inter-disciplinary design practice with offices in Liverpool, Preston, Nottingham and Newcastle.
Born in 1950 and spending his early life in Bootle, Bill studied Architecture at Liverpool University. After a short period, working in London he returned to Liverpool to complete his training and qualified as an Architect in 1974. In 1979 he undertook a part time course in Birmingham and qualified as a Landscape Architect in 1983.
He has played a pioneering role in new housing initiatives including early work with the Housing Cooperative Movement. As Architect of the Eldonian Village in Liverpool and many other award winning community based housing projects, he has promoted sustainable communities and environmentally innovative solutions throughout his 40 year career.
His work is based on an inclusive philosophy, generating good design through participation and involvement of clients, communities and user groups. Tackling urban issues through promoting shared vision and consensus building between stakeholders, he has produced sustainable designs and masterplans with a high degree of ownership, commitment and deliverability. Solutions include both new build and refurbishment as well as integrated environmental projects and open space designs. He has been involved in many publications and research projects and is currently involved in research focussing on the links between design and health.
Bill’s involvement and commitment continues to find expression through design of convivial, safe and stimulating living and working environments which are conducive to communal life and create distinctive neighbourhoods with a strong local identity.
Through his work he continues to develop the principles of socially and environmentally sustainable design and the spirit of innovation in the design process.
