With a successful track record in the West Midlands, maber architects has opened its Birmingham office with a view to further supporting the Midlands Engine for Growth.
Based on Colmore Row, the new office will be headed up by MD Mark Hobson and Associate David Brooks.
Named ‘West Midlands Architectural Practice of the Year’ at the Insider Property Awards last year, maber has a portfolio of high profile projects in various sectors, built over three decades and already has an established reputation in the West Midlands.
The practice has recently completed eight schools as part of the West Midlands Priority Building School Programme, a 280,000 square foot state-of-the-art headquarters and advanced manufacturing facility for Controls and Data Services, part of the Rolls-Royce Group, located on Birmingham Business Park, The WMG Academy for Young Engineers in Solihull, Moorgate Primary Academy in Tamworth and South Staffordshire College, which won ‘Best Inclusive Building for the Future’ at the LABC West Midlands Building Excellence Awards.
The team is currently looking at numerous student accommodation and PRS opportunities in the city.
Established in 1983, the practice has grown organically and now employs more than 60 staff with its HQ in Nottingham and additional offices in London, Leicester and Derby. The practice is listed in the Architects Journal Top 100 Practices in the UK, based on size and turnover.
Looking ahead, the goal is to extend maber’s offer beyond conventional architecture and interior design to a more holistic asset based design service offer. The intention is to work with clients to maximise the value of their estate whether that involves master planning, landscape solutions, the design of new buildings or interior fit-out and refurbishment of existing stock.
