We are delighted to announce that Barry Reid, Helen Yeadon and Joe Stewart have been promoted to Associate Director.
Barry is an experienced Architect who has worked in many different sectors but is especially knowledgeable about Retail. Since joining HFM in 2013, he has put this to great effect in delivering two complex projects at Grosvenor Shopping Centre in Chester, and is currently leading the new management suite project at The Oracle in Reading.
Helen has been with HFM since November 2010 and has progressed through gaining her Part 3 qualifications to being a talented and resourceful Architect. She excelled on the design work for the new Pepper Street restaurants in Chester, and has recently excited the client with her proposals for remodelling the 1970's office and retail building opposite.
Joe has also been with us since 2010 but joined a few months earlier than Helen. He is an MCIAT qualified Architectural Technologist and has a particular interest in ecological design and computer graphics. Recently, Joe has taken the lead on Phase 2 of the modernisation of the Weston Favell Shopping Centre in Northampton, which completes in March 2016, soon to be followed by Phase 3.
Helen and Joe also have a special interest in quality private residential projects. Joe carried out the renovation of his own house in North London, which has now been featured in Houzz magazine. We have also completed two small extension schemes and are currently working on the major remodelling of a house in Surrey, and several other innovative projects where we can add value with our design lead approach. We hope that this new stream of work will grow and provide HFM with some diversification from the retail sector.
We wish Barry, Helen and Joe all the best in their new roles and look forward to their input towards the future success of HFM.
