Architects expand with new office and staff

A Gloucestershire firm of architects has expanded its practice with a 40 per cent increase in staff and a move to larger offices in Cheltenham.

Driven by increasing demand for its architectural services, coombes : everitt has recently appointed four new members to its architectural team.

The practice, which launched in 2010, has grown to become one of the leading architectural practices in Gloucestershire. Its continued growth means it has outgrown its previous Winchcombe office and has now moved into premises on Bath Road in Cheltenham.

Known for its contemporary designs, in the last year the team has completed a number of award-winning commissions. These include Bradbury Gardens for the National Star, Crest Nicholson's Leckhampton Place and a number of private homes, such as Poachers Cottage which was commended in last year's Sunday Times British Homes Awards.

The practice now employs 13 people and boasts five chartered architects - making it one of the fastest growing in the region.

John Everitt, director, coombes : everitt, said: "The new appointments and office move are a natural next step in the growth of the practice. Since setting up, we've built a fantastic client base, securing planning and delivering over 1,250 new homes, 50 commercial schemes and 13 contemporary one-off homes.

"With 80 per cent of our work coming from referrals and repeat business, we're lucky to work with a wide range of clients, including commercial and residential developers, local authorities and private individuals looking to build their dream home.

"Our clients trust us to interpret their brief and deliver beautifully designed, creative and buildable projects. The new appointments will play an important part in our growth and will ensure we have the capacity to continue to deliver the very best in architectural design."

The company's newest recruits are: Gordon Simpson, senior architect; Jessica Bonfield, architect; Dan Kleiber, architectural assistant, RIBA Part II; and Bogomil Gatev, architectural assistant, RIBA Part I.
