Diana Chirescu

Architect & BIM / IM Specialist
BA March ARB

Diana has a particular interest in how low-energy design strategies can be adapted to public sector building standards, as well as how the implementation of digital construction can improve quality.

As a BIM expert, Diana joined Architype in 2020 and is currently working on exemplar Passivhaus education projects in Scotland, including Maybury Primary School and the innovative low carbon Community Renewable Energy Project (CoRE) in East Ayrshire.

Diana has worked on education and transport projects of different scales across Scotland. Her Part 3 case study focused on the design development of a pair of West Lothian nurseries, one designed to the Passivhaus standard and the other to typical building standards, which highlighted the significant energy, carbon, cost and comfort benefits of Passivhaus. At her previous practices Diana worked on several large scale international sports developments and education buildings. Highly experienced in BIM Manager and BIM Coordinator roles she develops schemes in Revit to BIM Level 2 standards, which brings significant project efficiencies and quality improvements.


Diana completed her bachelor’s degree at the University of Liverpool and her postgraduate Part 2 studies at the University of Edinburgh. She received her Part 3 from the Architects’ Professional Examination Authority in Scotland (APEAS).
