Waugh Thistleton Architects , Architect
Rebecca Sawcer was drawn to Waugh Thistleton through a passion for engineered timber and belief that sustainability should be fundamental to architecture. Since joining the practice Sawcer has brought this ethos to her work, taking a key role in the production of 100 CLT UK, a book which collates the lessons learned from key CLT buildings in the UK. She is currently working on the EU funded innovation project: Build in Wood, a pan European research which aims to increase the use of engineered timber in multistory buildings.
Sawcer is dedicated to maintaining design intent and integrity through all work stages and has applied this approach to a number of large and complex commercial schemes including Sugar House Island, a series of seven commercial buildings currently on site in Stratford.
A desire to promote the built environment as a career choice to future generations has seen Sawcer take a role as a guest critic at the University of Liverpool and become increasingly involved in external programmes which engage and excite school and college, age children with the prospect of architecture as a career.
