After winning a series of high-profile new commissions in Birmingham and the West Midlands, Bond Bryan Architects have announced expansion of their Birmingham studio with a move to new premises in Cavendish House on Waterloo Street.
Previously, Bond Bryan have designed many major projects in the region – including The National College for High Speed Rail, Harbourne Academy, Magna in Telford, Coventry and Aston Fire Stations and Sandwell College and Sixth Form. They are also currently delivering Lindsworth SEN School together with Polesworth and Oscott Manor Schools.
Bond Bryan have recently completed the WMG Degree Apprenticeship Centre at Warwick University and are currently working on the Warwick Arts Centre and the expansion of the Business School. The practice has 135 staff and this investment in the expansion of the Birmingham studio will be supported by Bond Bryan’s studios in London, Sheffield and Kent.
Fran Holloway, Associate Director, will be heading up the Birmingham studio. Fran commented:
“As a local architect working in Birmingham for the last 20 years, this is a great and exciting opportunity to lead the continued growth of our Birmingham studio in the heart of the Midlands; the region is continuing to flourish with a vision and a drive which we are keen to continue to be a part of.”
Bond Bryan Director for Birmingham Bruce Raw added:
“After many years of growing our practice’s reputation in the region, we are very excited to start this next chapter in our development. Moving into our new studio will allow us the space to grow to meet our clients’ needs by building a strong local team – living, working and delivering projects here in the West Midlands. Our decision to invest is in response to the real joined-up thinking that we see across the region which is creating a real sense of confidence in the region’s future.”
