An award winning architecture practice in Leeds has appointed two new team members and is actively recruiting across all levels of the business in response to a number of new contract wins.
Chris Johnson joins Headingley-based Brewster Bye Architects as an architectural assistant, and Jack Dooley as a junior technologist.
Chris and Jack have experience across a number of sectors including the residential property market, the healthcare sector, the commercial sector and the public sector.
Jack, who graduated two years ago from Leeds Metropolitan University with a BSC Hons in Architectural Technology says: “Having spent two years working for an architectural firm in York, I have been involved with some really interesting projects in the residential sector, including listed buildings and small scale affordable housing developments. I also have a keen interest in architectural visualisation and Building Information Modeling (BIM) software, which I successful introduced at my last firm.”
Chris who is in his final year of a BA in Architecture at Northumbria University says: “My university work has been shortlisted for several student awards and includes projects to redevelop a neglected former railway station in Newcastle, and the creation of a visitor gateway scheme in the Northumberland National Park. I am looking forward to spending my placement year at Brewster Bye where I will get the chance to support their team of experienced architects on a wide range of quality projects.”
Managing Director Chris Austin says: “These two new appointments mean that our team has continued to grow as our business expands and secure new contracts. Since the firm was founded 23 years ago, we have built up an impressive client list across both the private and public sectors, and have further growth plans in the pipeline this year, which means we are actively looking to employ more experienced architects and architectural assistants.”
