About Bob McDonald
A fully qualified architect with over 30 years’ experience - having worked with award winning practices from across the UK, including Building Design Partnership in Glasgow, Robinson & McIlwaine and Hall Black Douglas in Belfast and most recently with the Architects Design Group (ADG) in Plymouth.
Bob studied Architecture at Queens University through a Degree and Diploma in Advanced Architectural Studies DAAS and was the first final year student to be awarded the Royal Society of Ulster Architects Bronze Medal. Following working with a number of architectural practices in Belfast, Bob moved to Plymouth with his wife Lindsay in 2000 and joined ADG following a number of successful interviews with the leading architectural practices in the city. He continued working and enjoying life, both personally and architecturally in Plymouth, until his family – now joined by his son and daughter - decided to move back up to Scotland to be closer to family and friends, particularly those in Kirkwall, Orkney.
Whilst with ADG, Bob designed a number of projects ranging in construction value from loft extensions and individual houses to large mixed use multi-million pound developments, medical, higher education developments and a large number of residential apartments.
