We have made five internal appointments to support continuing growth within the practice. The creative team is now the biggest it has ever been, with a team of 69 people.
Existing Associates, Steve Townsend and Graham Hall, have been promoted to the position of Associate Director, recognising their contribution in developing new sectors and clients. Steve Townsend has also been central to the practice’s recent rebranding exercise and was the founder of the Birmingham’s Hidden Spaces initiative.
Jonathan Davey and Tim Cornbill have been promoted to the position of Associate, recognising their contribution in delivering landmark projects such as JLR’s Engine Manufacturing Centre and the University of Birmingham’s New Library respectively. Tim Cornbill was also a double winner in the 2017 Sony World Photography Awards, in the Architecture Open category and the UK National Award.
Karis Cochrane has been promoted to Senior Architect, in recognition of her excellent work on a number of conservation and residential projects, and going forward will lead on several key schemes in the schools and university sectors.
The practice largely recruits from within the region in support of the firm’s policy to foster local talent and support the region’s architecture schools.
Matthew Goer, Director said: “Associated Architects has had a record couple of years securing a number of new clients and a clutch of high profile awards.
“It’s important for us to recognise the work of individuals in achieving this, as well as ensuring that we have the right team in place to guarantee our high level of service to both existing and new clients.
“The five team members we have promoted have proven themselves to be highly effective in their project work and contribute a great deal to the life and culture of the practice.”
