Tim Groom Architects announced David Machell has joined the Manchester based practice as an architectural assistant.

David is a graduate of the University of Liverpool where he received a First Class Master of Architecture degree and was presented with the Hays Practice Design Prize.  He joins the team having recently returned from travelling around New Zealand, Japan and Vietnam.

David will be working on a variety of projects including a housing development in Cheshire and a newly commissioned £30M mixed use development in Liverpool.

The new appointment follows a busy year for the practice which has seen recent planning approvals for a boutique hotel at Bruntwood Hall in Cheshire and a 121 studio apartment development for students at Trafford Street in Chester.  Tim Groom Architects is also working on a number of residential commissions in Manchester City Centre including a 14 storey PRS scheme for Mulbury Homes on Great Ancoats Street.

Tim Groom said: “We met David just before he embarked upon his travels and after keeping in touch over the last few months I’m pleased to now have him joining the team. Our order book is continuing to expand and it’s great to have someone of his calibre to assist us in delivering the exciting projects we are working on.”

David’s appointment follows three new starters who joined Tim Groom Architects in April this year, taking the number of people employed by the company to 11.
