Our People

Andy Clifton
Andy Clifton

Managing Director

Andy has over 40 years of architectural experience since entering the industry in 1974; his wide and varied experience has been achieved through employment with leading architectural practices. After rising through the ranks and taking on managerial positions he eventually began a personal practice in 2006, Clifton Fenton Associates, which later became C+A Design in 2009. His achievements have been attained through hard dedication and a positive work philosophy which he applied to his partnerships with clients and colleagues to deliver high quality services and programming. This has come about through long term relationships with associates and global agreements with major UK blue chip companies which continue to go from strength to strength. When Andy isn’t propping up the bar in his local he is either walking his dog Jasper with wife Sue or standing on the terraces at Hillsborough.
