Something to celebrate!

Clients and colleagues past and present joined family and friends to wish former directors Jon and Lynn Upsher well as they began their retirement last month. Jon shared reminiscences and stories amassed over the decades and described his satisfaction at having successfully steered Stone + Partners through some challenging times, so as to now be able to hand a thriving practice on to Nick Ratcliff.  Nick expressed the thoughts of all present when he thanked Jon for his outstanding commitment and service, and wished both Jon and Lynn a long and very happy retirement.

After all the difficulties of the past two years it was excellent to meet face to face with so many who have been involved with Stone + Partners in the past, and to renew the personal connections which are such a key aspect of our collaboration with our colleagues and our service to our clients.  As Director Nick Ratcliff puts it: ‘Good buildings result from people working well together, sharing a commitment to a common goal. Strong personal relationships remain fundamental to who we are as Stone + Partners.’

Under new management

After an association of 35 years with Stone + Partners, and at the helm for the past four years, Jon Upsher has now retired as Director.  His dedication and service throughout the pandemic has been paramount in the continuation of Stone + Partners and its legacy.  We therefore want to take this opportunity to wish Jon a long, happy, and satisfying retirement and thank him for his incredible service and dedication over the years.

Nick Ratcliff, who has been Senior Architect at Stone + Partners since 2019, after a career of more than 20 years in the industry, is now Director and is leading Stone + Partners into this new and exciting chapter of the practice’s development.

Stone + Partners have always taken pride in their prompt and personalised approach to every client.  This will continue with projects, both ongoing and new and our dedicated team will continue to fulfil your brief to its full potential with Nick now at the helm.
