A YOUNG man from North Yorkshire who was recognised last year as an emerging talent in architecture has now taken on a new role inspiring the next generation of architectural technologists.

Sam Lambert who works for P+HS Architects in Stokesley has been appointed the chairman of Chartered Institute of Architectural Technology’s AspirATion group for the Yorkshire region.

Starting his career as an apprentice in 2019, after studying a HNC course in construction at Darlington College in partnership with Teesside University Mr Lambert graduated two years later with distinction in all eight modules.

Following a continuing rapid career development, he was nominated for and won the international award for the Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists Emerging Talent Award 2022.

This opened up further opportunities and at the age of only 24, he was invited to be the chairman of CIAT’s AspirATion group for the Yorkshire Region. The group is made up of students, graduates and recently qualified professionals and provides them the opportunity to develop and grow both personally and professionally, whilst inspiring the next generation within architectural technology.

Following the news of Mr Lambert’s success, both he and his employers P+HS Architects received a letter of praise from the Prime Minster Rishi Sunak. He was particularly impressed by his daily commute of 100 miles from his home in the Yorkshire Dales.

Mr Lambert said: “I've been lucky enough to be inspired and supported in my career to date, going from apprentice in 2019 to winner of CIAT's Emerging Talent award in 2022 it has been quite a journey so far.

“As chairman of the Yorkshire AspirATion group, I look forward to developing a community of talented and ambitious professionals within AT, a community that supports one another, inspires the next generation, and has a voice in the future of Architectural Technology and its pivotal role within the UK Construction Industry.

“I’m looking forward to the year ahead and some great events, opportunities for networking, knowledge sharing and hopefully plenty of enjoyment along the way.”
