Architectural firm Austin-Smith:Lord has promoted three of its team in the Liverpool studio.
Phillip Morton, project architect, Geoff Dunbebin, senior technician, and Les Holleron, resource manager, were all promoted to associate level in the Port of Liverpool Building-based practice.
Morton joined ASL in 2001 and worked on the renovation of The Bluecoat in Liverpool and the recently opened People's History Museum in Manchester.
Dunbebin worked at ASL's first North West office in Warrington before the Liverpool and Manchester offices opened. He played a leading role in the master-planning of Stockport College's £95m campus redevelopment.
Holleron joined ASL's finance team in 2007 with a background in quantity surveying and construction economics.
Maggie Mullan, partner at ASL, said: "The Liverpool studio has a healthy pipeline of work and we are looking forward to further expansion in the future."
The practice also announced the recruitment of 19-year old technician, James Whittaker, to its IT department.
ASL employs 58 people in Liverpool and 27 in Manchester.
