Mark Dellaquaglia

Mr Design & Build

Mark is purely focused on the commercial side of the company. With 20+ years of experience in the sector, there is nothing Mark doesn't know about commercial projects. He has a wealth of knowledge and experience, from traditional architectural services, masterplanning, turnkey developments, workplace consultancy, fit-out refurbishment and construction management.

Mark began his architectural training at Aberdeen College before completing a Building Construction and Architectural Technology course at Robert Gordon University.

A director of Albyn Architects, Mark originally founded 'Albyn Architectural' in 2015 before joining forces with Ian in 2018, to create 'Albyn Architects'. This has allowed Mark to focus on the Workplace Design & Build side of the business.
