David Morley Architects

Juliet Erridge

Associate Director

Juliet joined David Morley Architects in 1994. She took a career break in 1996 to have a family and returned in 2001. She became an associate in 2007. Juliet has been involved in projects across a wide range of sectors including health and mental health, academic and education, residential and sport. She has particular experience in master planning, brief development, consultation and working with listed buildings.

Her career at David Morley Architects began in healthcare working as project architect during construction of a new imaging department at the Hospital of St John and St Elizabeth, London. Later Juliet was project architect for the proposals to Stage D for the refurbishment of the maternity department and special care baby unit at Stoke Mandeville Hospital, leading consultation with the staff from two hospitals to be amalgamated onto a single site.

She continued her work in healthcare leading the development of a masterplan for St Mary's Hospital, Paddington, London. This was the first of a number of complex master planning projects Juliet has been involved with, looking at the longterm redevelopment of a very congested urban site with a number of listed buildings.

Juliet worked in the university sector when she was project architect for the refurbishment of teaching laboratories and some specialist research facilities at the University of Liverpool Biosciences Centre. The specialist facilities included aquaria and insectaries, which required highly controlled environmental conditions.

Juliet was part of the ‘Building Schools for the Future’ Client Design Adviser team for Greenwich Council consulting with five secondary schools to develop the architectural briefs for their redevelopment.

Juliet began the first of many projects in the mental health sector working on the re-provision of mental health facilities in Luton and South Bedfordshire. This included provision of secure, community based and specialist elderly units. Juliet led user group discussions and development of room data sheets for a number of projects.

Most recently Juliet has led the team working on the redevelopment of St Bernard's Hospital in Ealing which is a large mental health site housing over 300 service users from forensic medium secure male, female and adolescent services, low secure and step down services, to specialist open rehabilitation, adult acute and older adult local services. The site still houses the original asylum buildings dating from 1831, which are listed.

The scope of this project has included developing a longterm masterplan and phasing plan for the site, proposals for a new forensic medium secure unit (due to start on site in May 2013), proposals for the refurbishment of listed buildings and for a new residential development of 270 units, to help fund re-provision of clinical services.

Juliet was responsible for developing the office Quality Management System and now heads the team that maintains this system. In August 2014 Juliet became an associate director.
