With more than a decade of experience designing buildings and spaces in Bristol, the South West, and Wales, BDP has appointed Akshay Khera as the head of its Bristol Studio.

Khera’s appointment supports the continued growth of BDP in the region as a widely respected, socially progressive global design practice with an embedded multidisciplinary approach across healthcare, housing, education, and workplace sectors.

Akshay Khera, Head of BDP Bristol said: “Once again, Bristol has been named as one of the best places to live in the UK and it is known to be one of the highest-growth cities across multiple major asset classes.”

“The opportunity for growth in the region in all sectors remains strong and as a multidisciplinary consultancy, we are perfectly placed to help our local clients understand their investment and property portfolio strategies,” Khera continued. 

BDP is currently working on a new elective care centre at Southmead Hospital

“By delivering designs that are contextual, sustainable, and people-centered we aim to deliver stimulating spaces in schools and universities, stress-relieving environments in healthcare facilities, a strong sense of community in housing developments and workplaces that foster collaboration and wellbeing,” Khera concluded.

Khera joined BDP Bristol in 2004 and in 2010 went on to lead the Delhi and Abu Dhabi studios where his international portfolio included notable projects such as the masterplan for the Indian Institute of Technology and the University of Birmingham’s Dubai Incubator campus.

He returned to Bristol in 2019 and has brought his proven expertise in collaborative communication and design to lead a number of projects such as the University of Bristol Dental School, projects for the University of the West of England, and the International HQ for the European Centre for Medium Range Weather Forecasts.

BDP is currently working on a number of projects across the South West including a series of healthcare projects including the new elective care centre at Southmead Hospital.
