Elizabeth Crawford

Project Director

Elizabeth joined the practice over a decade ago and has worked across all sectors, specialising in the retrofitting and refurbishment of listed buildings or those in particularly sensitive or challenging contexts.

Having worked with many stakeholder-led clients, Elizabeth is well versed on the importance of early engagement to ensure successful brief development and building outcomes. She is skilled in resolving the tension between conservation and practicality, delivering buildings that meet the client’s brief, ensure future flexibility and sustainability, are easily maintained and above all, serve their users well.

As Cartwright Pickard’s conservation specialist, Elizabeth has delivered the award-winning refurbishment and retrofit of the celebrated Grade II Listed 1963 Golden Lane Leisure Centre by Chamberlain, Powell and Bon in the City of London, a new cafe pavilion and refurbishment of an existing block within the historic Boilerhouse complex for Royal Holloway, University of London, and recently completed the £25m refurbishment of the Grade II listed Edwardian Lambeth Town Hall as part of our regeneration scheme for Lambeth Borough Council. She is currently working on the transformation of Bromley Town Hall into a modern mixed-use development including a boutique hotel and co-working spaces.

As well as being an Architect and a RIBA Conservation Registrant, Elizabeth is also a qualified Landscape Architect. She continues to promote the importance of public realm and health and wellbeing as a successful part of any project.
