Basic Biographical Details

Name: Mottram Patrick Whitehorn Dalgleish & Partners
Born: 1968
Bio Notes: The practice of Alfred Hugh Mottram was continued by his son James Arthur Hugh Mottram who had served part of his apprenticeship with Dunn & Martin and became a partner in 1950. In 1954 the younger Mottram took Thomas Edward Patrick, a friend from Edinburgh College of Art, into partnership; and in 1960 their long-serving chief assistant Andrew Martin Dalgleish also became a partner. The practice title then became Mottram Patrick & Dalgleish.

In 1968 the practice amalgamated with that of Donald P Whitehorn to become Mottram Patrick Whitehorn Dalgleish & Partners and some time later Mottram Patrick. In the same year Ronald Drylie was taken into partnership.

The practice won a Civic trust Award in 1971 and an RIBA Commendation in 1976.

In 1975, the practice operated in association with Gearey, Blair & Weed of Liverpool.
