North West architects, Michael Hyde & Associates, have announced that director, Tom Green, will leave the practice today after 26 years.
Green joined the practice in 1989 and was promoted to director in 2000. During his time at MHA he worked on a number of the practice’s award-winning buildings including Oswestry Leisure Centre and Altrincham Grammar School’s Sports Facilities building.
Green said: “Having spent the majority of my working life with Michael Hyde & Associates it has not been an easy decision and I wish the practice well for its continued success in the future.
“I have enjoyed my time with Michael Hyde & Associates enormously but the time is right to leave and I am now looking forward eagerly to a new challenge within architecture.”
Director Paul Chadwick, who will be taking over the role as head of residential, said: “We are grateful to Tom for the contribution he has made over the past 26 years. He has been committed to delivering an excellent service to our clients; something which runs firmly through our ethos. We want to thank him for his dedication to the practice and wish him well.”
Meanwhile, three of the firm’s senior architects have been promoted. Georgina Geraghty, Gareth Llanwarne and David Wood have all been become associate directors.
Ian Thorp, director, commented: “These promotions are well deserved and reflect the expertise and commitment which each of them has shown to our clients and to the practice. It demonstrates the importance we place on developing and investing in our people so that we can continue to provide the excellent service which our clients rightly expect.”
MHA employs 27 staff, working across residential, leisure, education, health and development. Clients include Pure Gym, Your Housing Group and Harper Adams University.
