AFL Architects recruits director

Martin Hill has re-joined the Manchester-based practice after 10 years with Lewis & Hickey Architects.

Hill first worked for AFL Architects in 2000 as an associate architect. He would stay with the company for 12 years before moving on to Lewis & Hickey. Past projects for Hill include Crumpsall Vale Intermediate Care centre, and an A&E resuscitation unit for Oxford University Hospitals.

Now, Hill has returned with the title of director. Hill will specialise in healthcare and education projects for AFL.

“It’s great to be re-joining AFL where I qualified all those years ago, but this time to help lead their healthcare and education sectors,” Hill said.

“With many estate managers looking at ways to combine their sustainability targets, work with their communities to provide them with the best facilities, and run as efficiently and effectively as possible, there is much scope for great design and planning.”

John Roberts, AFL director, said it was “great to have Martin back”.

“Healthcare and education continue to be an area of importance and growth for us as a company, and of course, as a region and country as a whole,” Roberts said.

“We believe Martin’s expertise will complement the existing team and allow us to grow our service offering to clients and potential new clients.”

Recent AFL projects in the North West and North Wales include the £73m Marine Lake Events Centre in Southport and Wrexham AFC’s new Kop.
