It is with great sadness that we announce that David Burn, a former Partner of Playle & Partners passed away on 27 December 2019 aged 72 years. David joined the Practice as a Partner in 2000 and retired in 2010. David was instrumental in setting up the Architect’s Department within the Practice and for two years after his retirement he was a Consultant undertaking Expert Witness Work.
Prior to joining Playle & Partners David was Assistant Regional Director at Orbit Housing Association for four years – and prior to this his career included being Head of Technical Services at the London Borough of Greenwich and the Director of Technical Services at Sanctuary Housing Association and other roles at WPHT Housing Association, Shepherds Bush Housing Association and Stout & Lichfield – Architects.
Our thoughts are with his wife Suzie at this sad time.
