Kirkham-based Croft Goode Architects has continued its growth with the recruitment of six new employees over the last nine months.
The Building Information Modelling-focused practice, which turns 21 this year, is leading the way in enabling clients, contractors and consultants to collaborate more efficiently during the life cycle of a project.
The firm uses collaborative 3D models where the design team can communicate more effectively from the very start.
This not only saves time and money, but helps create better designs using a process that highlights how buildings will be constructed, used and managed from the outset.
Croft Goode is currently shortlisted for five 2015 LABC awards and the 2015 RICS award for Building Conservation in the North West.
Cliff Owens and Neil Martin have joined Croft Goode as fully qualified architectural technicians.
New recruits Aimee Griffiths and Dan Bishop are developing job-running skills working on projects as they study for their final Chartered exams, and Stephen Peploe and Luke Jones were offered architectural assistant appointments having gained their degrees and RIBA Part 1 status.
Croft Goode co-founder Mick Goode said: “Investing in people at varying stages of their journey in the architecture world has been essential for the firm’s reputation and success.
“The fresh attitude of like-minded aspiring architects is exactly why we continue this policy.”
