Hopkins managing director leaves the practice

Bill Taylor, managing director of Hopkins Architects, is leaving the firm after having worked there for 30 years. In a statement Friday the firm said Taylor is stepping down "to concentrate on the development of a site” he owns.  

  The news comes at a time the practice is changing its structure.  Currently a limited company, Hopkins Architects will revert to a limited liability partnership (LLP) to give it greater flexibility for succession as new partners rise through the ranks.  

  Taylor is a force in sustainable design. Under his direction, the practice has built more than 2 million square feet of BREEAM ‘Excellent” rated or LEED gold equivalent facilities and has recently completed its first LEED platinum rated building for Northern Arizona University’s Applied Research and Development building at Flagstaff, Arizona and a zero-carbon emission building at The School of Forestry and Environmental Studies Building at Yale University.  

  A spokeswoman for Hopkins said “Bill has made a major contribution to the quality, range and diversity of the practice’s work, particularly in the area of sustainable architecture.   We owe him an immense debt of gratitude, and hope he will be involved in some way in the future.”
