Director appointed to lead Hughes Architects new Cardiff practice
Stephen Quin has been appointed to head up the new Cardiff office of architects and building designers Hughes Architects.
Hughes Architects is opening the office as part of a growth strategy. Its existing offices are at Newtown and Welshpool in Powys, Aberystwyth in Ceredigion, and is embarking on a move into Shrewsbury in Shropshire.
Moving home isn’t the only choice homeowners have when wanting a change in the way they live, whether to upsize or just for a different layout in their accommodation. With a range of choices when it comes to the design, planning and build of properties, extending or renovating an existing home can be a cost effective option.
Promoting careers to architects of the future in Wales
Young people are our future and we're very proud to be helping inspire the next generation of architects and associated archtectural, building design and consultancy professionals by taking part in the Powys Careers Fair.
Working with landowners to bring forward land for development
There’s a constant need for land to supply demand for homes and other properties within Powys, Shropshire and Ceredigion.
Quite often there aren’t enough or suitable brownfield sites to cater for such demand within existing planning boundaries. And so we work with landowners and developers to identify and bring forward such land.
Commitment to “sustainable” wood in Powys council homes will be good for the region
A commitment to building and fitting-out future council homes in Powys with local, sustainable wood materials is welcome and will provide additional economic opportunities in the area, according to a local architect.
Powys County Council has revealed the adoption of a Wood Encouragement Policy as part of the Home Grown Homes Partnership. It will see sustainable wood used in all future council home building projects throughout the county.
