Architect Cassidy + Ashton has opened a new office in Mold following a growth in North Wales projects.
Situated in St Andrew’s Business Centre, the new base is led by director of the Chester office, Dave Owen, who shares his duties across Chester and Mold. Alongside Owen, director Guy Evans and associate Susan McBain also share their time across the two offices.
The firm will be recruiting to North Wales in 2017, as well as relocating further staff from the Chester office.
Cassidy + Ashton has 55 staff across offices in Preston, Chester and North Wales, and provides services in architecture, building surveying and town planning.
The company’s projects underway in North Wales include a series of barn conversions in Holt and Rossett, a poultry processing facility in Maelor, a 180-property residential scheme in Rhosrobin and a new build residential development in Anglesey. The firm is also working for Powys Council and Wrexham Council to increase the energy efficiency in their housing stock.
Owen said: “The market is somewhat underserviced in North Wales, with very few architects able to offer the breadth of services we do. The new Wales office provides us with close proximity to our clients and signals our ambitions to grow and seek out new opportunities.”
