Leading the Sports and Leisure portfolio, Sam has delivered award-winning projects including the high-profile redevelopment of the Compton and Edrich stands at Lord’s Cricket Ground for the MCC, the Basketball Arenas at both the London 2012 and Rio 2016 Olympics, and the Liverpool Arena. His work has been instrumental in expanding WilkinsonEyre’s work in the sporting sector both in scale and design ambition.

Sam also has a strong commercial track record, including the delivery of 8 Finsbury Circus and Gresham St Pauls, two office schemes on high-value sites in the City of London that combine refurbishment and new build elements. For the University of Oxford, he completed the Earth Science Building, while projects overseas include a million square foot office park development in Cairo, WilkinsonEyre's first project to be completed in North Africa.

Alongside his architectural duties, Sam is responsible for the practice's Design and Quality Management System, and reviews procurement arrangements across the practice.
