Carol Aitchison

PA and Receptionist

I’m the latest addition to the Hughes Architects team, having joined the practice in September 2017.

I’m PA to Principal Architect and Managing Director, Doug Hughes, and receptionist at our Newtown office.

Before joining the team I was administrative manager and PA to Doug’s accountant until his retirement in March, and so I have been indirectly involved with the business for over 15 years now.

My role is to support Doug in all aspects of his work, be it producing reports; updating clients on progress of their work; ensuring consultants are producing surveys required and making sure deadlines are met.

I am also the receptionist for the Newtown office and I pride myself on my ability to nag (my teenage daughter may have helped on this skill), and usually get what I want.

As client focus is a priority for me, getting what I want should mean excellent service for our clients.

Outside the office I spend much of my time refurbishing my very dilapidated, but potentially beautiful town house. This is almost a full time job in itself.

I love Welsh  rugby and follow the Ospreys as well as the national team, the Six Nations being my favourite sporting fixture.

I enjoy walks in the countryside with my beagle puppy and I am a regular visitor to Swansea where my daughter is attending university.
