Buttress Architects has promoted Stephen Anderson and Neal Charlton to the position of associate director, after a combined 26 years with the business.
Charlton has been with Buttress for 16 years and is part of the arts and culture team, having completed numerous museum projects. He is currently leading projects for the new Blackpool museum, and at grade one-listed Headstone Manor in Harrow.
Anderson joined Buttress in 2005 and is part of the historic buildings team, and has led a number of projects within the practice that involve heritage and existing buildings. He is currently advising the National Trust at Quarry Bank Mill on the lottery-funded Quarry Bank project, and the new visitor centre at Norton Priory.
Gavin Sorby, managing director, said: “Neal and Stephen have been making an increasingly important contribution to Buttress for several years and I am delighted they have accepted the position of associate directors.
“Their appointment puts in place a key piece of our strategy for the future and I am especially pleased we have been able to make these appointments from within.”
