This month ArchiPhonic turned six and we celebrated by announcing our team expansion.
We recently shared the news that we had appointed architectural designer, Allan Yeates and office administrator, Grace Costello to support our expanding client base and influx of new projects. In the past 12 months we have been instructed on 84 new projects in the residential and commercial sectors and reported a 78% increase in turnover – so we needed a couple of extra pairs of hands!
Bringing more than a decade’s experience in the industry to the team, including a stint with renowned international practice, Benoy, Allan has worked extensively in the residential sector, as well as in large scale mixed-use projects and commercial design for the food and catering industries.
First class graduate, Grace Costello, is responsible for the day-to-day organisation of the team and is the first point of contact for our clients. Grace studied Modern History and Politics at the University of Liverpool and developed a love of architecture when writing her dissertation on Modernist architecture in Liverpool in a political context.
The last 12 months has been a really exciting period of development for the company. We’ve seen considerable growth in turnover that has been reflected in profit and an increase in new appointment, which has meant we have needed to bring some talented new professionals into our team. Both Allan and Grace bring valuable skills and new ideas to the practice that will support our ambitious growth plans for the business, as well as sharing our vision and values.
In the six years since we established ArchiPhonic we have seen our sector and the city of Liverpool itself change dramatically, which has made for an exciting journey. We have been honoured to work with countless domestic and commercial clients, as well as supporting fantastic local events and organisations such as Pride Liverpool, Threshold Festival, Bickerstock Festival and the GIT Awards. Now we are looking forward to another busy 12 months, with significant new projects about to begin and exciting work in the pipeline.
