Following the appointment of Jamie Furse as Director last year, we are delighted to welcome Katie Brown and Charles Jordan as Directors, bringing the total in the senior management team to eleven.
AWW has expanded rapidly over the last three years as the number of projects has grown. There are now over 90 members of staff across the three offices in Bristol, London and Plymouth, up from 59 in 2013.
Katie joined us from BDO LLP in 2011 and AWW’s turnover has doubled since she took on the Financial Controller role. Katie’s director activities will focus on Finance and HR.
Charles has worked at AWW since 2004. He has wide ranging experience delivering projects across the Education, Commercial, Healthcare and Residential sectors and is passionate about the utilisation of Building Information Management (BIM) processes throughout a project’s life cycle, helping to design better performing buildings from the outset. AWW has pioneered the use of BIM for a number of years.
Richard Francis, Practice Director, says: “Katie and Charles are invaluable members of the team. All our projects are led by a Director, and this expansion means we can continue to offer our clients day-to-day involvement in their projects at the highest level. AWW is well placed for further adventure both at home and increasingly internationally, secure in the knowledge that our succession plan will lead the practice to even greater heights”.
AWW has once again been shortlisted by the Architects Journal for Employer of the Year. AWW won the South West regional awards consecutively for the last four years that they were awarded, and we were runners up in the national award in 2014. We are keeping our fingers crossed for this year. If Leicester City can win the Premiership…
