Director for education joins Manchester design practice

SpaceZero has appointed Marc Davies as its director for education spaces to oversee its projects and business development within the sector.

Davies has 30 years’ experience working within education, and recently held technical advisory positions at the Education Funding Agency, and is a member of the British Standard Institute Committee on Education Furniture.

He specialises in the design of primary and secondary schools, and specifications of furniture.

Other recent appointments at SpaceZero include Paul Cunniff as SpaceZero’s finance director, Simon Westwell as management accountant, ex-headteacher Mick Quigley as Asia Pacific consultant, and design technologist Angela Valassopoulos

SpaceZero is a Building Information Modelling specialist and provides interiors, furniture, fixtures and equipment to large contractors, architects, local authorities and direct clients. Founded by Wayne Taylor and Philip Gardner in 2009, the firm has secured and completed more than 200 education and healthcare projects with 100 generated using BIM.

SpaceZero is based on Lloyd Street in Manchester.

Davies said: “I am thrilled to be starting this new chapter of my career with the skilled and creative team at SpaceZero. I am all too aware of the budgets and constraints that exist within the education sector, but this means that interior architects and FFE consultancies need to work collaboratively with their partners to achieve the best results. This ethos is at the centre of SpaceZero’s practice and I am looking forward to using my experience to help boost business development in the education sector.”
