Manchester-based Corstorphine + Wright has appointed two senior directors to its office as the architecture practice aims to expand its client base across the North West.
Kim Ebling and Lee Mansfield have both joined as directors, and will be focusing on growing Corstorphine + Wright’s commercial and public sector offering, as well as its residential portfolio.
There are now six people in the Manchester office.
Ebling joined from Manchester consultancy Edelmann & Ebling, of which she was founder and joint owner. She brings 20 years’ specialist residential and mixed-use development experience to the role, having worked across a broad range of projects including private and luxury schemes, social housing and sustainable development, with clients including Urban Splash, Artisan, Peel Holdings, Eastlands Homes and City South Manchester Housing Trust.
Mansfield has moved to the business from Fletcher Rae. Previously, he worked at AFL Architects and DTR. He has led numerous public sector projects including primary care and education schemes. More recently he has worked on large-scale commercial developments including the masterplan for Northwich town centre.
Ross Erwin, director at Corstorphine + Wright and head of the Manchester office, said: “Both Lee and Kim bring an extensive range of skills and depth of experience to Corstorphine + Wright, with over 40 years’ combined experience in their respective specialist areas.
“We have seen a huge increase in the volumes of work and clients we work with since we opened our Manchester office in 2012, and the fact that Kim and Lee, both seasoned directors with established reputation in the Manchester market, have chosen to join us highlights our ongoing success.
“Part of their roles will be to develop our sector offering and reach in the North West region. I look forward to supporting the Manchester team’s continued growth over the coming year.”
