Where have we come from and what drives us forward?

Archineers was established in 2000 to bridge the gap between architecture and engineering and champion the cause of sustainability in the design of the built environment. In the intervening years, we have had the privilege of working with inspirational clients on a wide range of innovative and exciting projects around the world.

To deliver sustainability goals and targets, we pride ourselves on our strengths of team working, technical expertise and commercial knowledge.

From our foundations as a leading UK company, we now operate across North America and internationally.

We thrive on collaborative working with our clients and design teams to provide integrated design leadership to realize delivery of some remarkable projects.

Our work in developing countries was a key factor in the establishment of the company back in 2000 and remains a driving force today, as we continue to seek out low-tech, simple and robust solutions.

We’re always looking for new challenges. If you think we can help with your project, please get in touch through our Contact page.

Trevor Butler, CEO/President

As the founder of Archineers, Trevor Butler has been at the forefront of green design practice since 1994. Having established and developed the Construction Ecology Unit at UK company Fulcrum Consulting with the mission to explore and develop sustainable design practice into the mainstream, his projects there included Mile End Park, winner of London First’s Sustainable Project of the Millennium, and Great Notley Centre, winner of CIBSE Environmental Initiative of the Year 2000.

He then joined Europe’s largest multi‐disciplinary design firm, Building Design Partnership (BDP), to found and establish a cross-company sustainability design and consultancy practice. His projects included work with the Parliamentary Estate in London; JPMorganChase new headquarters building; Tesco mixed-use urban schemes; and successful work with Building Schools for the Future.

In 2007 in recognition of his work, Trevor won the Building Sustainability Champion Award, voted for by his peers in the whole UK design and construction industry.

Learning has been an integral part of Trevor’s career, both through his own personal development, and also teaching and inspiring the next generation of engineers. Since 2001, Trevor has been working with Canadian Universities, teaching as an adjunct professor in the schools of architecture to ensure that sustainability becomes an integral part of the students’ thinking and future designs. In June 2008, Trevor was invited to give the keynote address at the Canada Green Building Council’s first Conference in Toronto. He has a Masters Degree from Cambridge University in Interdisciplinary Design for the Built Environment and is a Chartered Professional Engineer. He is currently completing his PhD.
