Rachel is currently leading a number of high profile residential projects through planning stages.

Since joining the practice 3 years ago, David has earned himself a reputation for working tirelessly to ensure Whittam Cox service provision is at the highest possible level. He is a highly experienced technical designer and project leader with expertise in small and large scale residential developments. He is currently leading the delivery of Middlewood Locks Build to Rent scheme in Salford.
