Alison set up Sisco Architecture Limited at the beginning of 2009. She had worked for the preceding ten years for a large Cambridge practice building up an extensive portfolio of healthcare projects. During her time there she was the project architect on many multi-million pound hospital projects as well as running both residential and educational developments.
It was the wide range of experience, the many skills and the strong links to local and regional contractors and clients that were acquired and developed during the previous years that inspired Alison to set up her own practice.
Alison is a keen photographer and does her best to fulfil her love of travelling. She is also a keen cyclist and believes that keeping a healthy lifestyle can strongly improve the way you work.
