AEW Expands Housing Expertise

Manchester-based AEW Architects has completed the transfer of an experienced housing team from a well known practice based in Heaton Mersey, as the award winning practice bolsters its specialist accommodation sector offering and increases its capacity for project opportunities in housing design and delivery.

Already briefed on a series of housing projects, the new team of six brings a wealth of experience and expertise in this sector to complement the existing 71-strong AEW practice of architects, interior designers and architectural technicians. Headed up by former director, Colin Savage, the Housing team has a strong track record having won a host of awards for its multi-million pound schemes nationwide.

Upon securing the team, AEW managing director, Steve Burne, said: “Housing projects and Social Housing in particular was identified as a target area within our Business Plan, to complement our other accommodation work in apartments, hotels and hospital accommodation. To obtain a team of highly regarded specialists is a real coup for AEW and gives added diversity in this continually growing sector.”

Following recent BCO award success and RICS ‘Highly Commended’ for its commercial project, Moneypenny’s headquarters in Wrexham, North Wales, AEW will look to further increase its foothold across North West projects, in its specialist sectors of Offices, Retail, Industrial, Accommodation and Sport.

Colin Savage of AEW added: “Housing is a key driver in the Northern Powerhouse and Greater Manchester’s spatial framework agendas, which our clients have responded to positively in their development plans. Combining our housing expertise and experience with AEW’s renowned architecture skills, pedigree and resources, we are offering clients an enhanced service in delivering their goals. We are delighted to join AEW and be part of the practice’s next period of sustained growth.”
