An architecture firm based in Chester has addressed its plans to expand in the future, including adding two new members of staff to its payroll.
Base Architecture & Design has just hired Par 2 architectural assistants to support its ambitions to serve clients across the north-west, Wales and Cheshire, Business Up North reported.
Jack Harris and James Smith have taken on the roles, while existing employee Adam Turnell has become a qualified architect in recent months. The new staff members will help the firm work on the 200-plus projects it currently has in the pipeline, worth more than £20 million.
Managing director Carl Huntley said: “The expansion of our team underpins the growing demand for our services.”
He added: “2017 saw us working on more projects than any other year in our history and indications are that this will continue into 2018 and beyond.”
Base Architecture & Design, which also has an office in Shrewsbury, most likely made use of Chester storage options before opening its new location at the end of last year.
Abigail Owen, a member of the Cheshire Society of Architects and Panel Member of Cheshire West and Chester Design Review Panel, helped launch its Chester office, and will now be aided with the new appointments.
Its main focus is new builds, extensions, renovations, commercial and urban developments in the Shropshire, Midlands, north Wales and Cheshire regions, and it has started to work closely with James Roberts Design to build on the interiors aspect of its business.
Base Interiors provides a design service that includes sourcing materials, bespoke fittings, and finding the right accessories for each property it works on. One of its featured projects is Upmeads, a Grade-II listed building from 1908, designed by Edgar Wood.
The firm was hired to restore the home’s arts and crafts, and design the interior to reflect and complement the style of the property.
