Relocation, rebrand and recruitment for growing architect’s practice
Edward Architects has relocated its team to a new base at Marshall’s Mill on the Round Foundry estate in Holbeck Urban Village, Leeds.
The move is designed to accommodate continued and future business growth.
It coincides with a brand refresh with a company name change to Edward Architects (from Edward Architecture) and another new hire.
The firm’s 14-strong team has moved from Whitehall Waterfront in Leeds to 2,000 sq ft of office space at the refurbished Grade II former mill after taking out a five-year lease.
The new office gives the company capacity to double its workforce and deliver more projects for its expanding client base across growth sectors including housing, master planning, modular construction and court protection disabled access.
Edward Architect has rolled out a rebranding programme which includes a refreshed logo, a new name, as well as a new corporate website.
To support its growing court protection work, the business has hired Craig Darby as architectural technologist.
He joins the practice from GSS Architecture where he was an architect apprentice working across a range of schemes including the lead on a large-scale, high-budget university campus project.
Graham Edward, MD, said: “This is an exciting time for us as a business and we are pleased to house the team in a new home at Marshall’s Mill which dovetails perfectly with our rebranding work.
“Marshall’s Mill has attracted a range of businesses from creatives and film/tv production companies to professional services organisations, tech firms and more, so we are in good company.
“We continue to grow in our core sectors and have ambitious plans to continue our strategic expansion over the next five years.
“Marshall’s Mill is a hugely inspiring place to work and is the perfect business location to accommodate our growth plans.”
