Shaw joins the team from KMB as project manager and has previously worked as lead project manager on the completion of new retail space at White City and the delivery of the Ellesmere Centre, a new-build shopping centre in Walkden.
Recent commissions for AA Projects include retail and mixed-use developments for Derwent Group Holdings in White City in Manchester and Edge Lane in Liverpool. Additional work is being undertaken for Damson Restaurants.
There are now nine people in the project management team based in Manchester, and the head office is in Sale.
