HOLMES Miller has announced it has strengthened its senior team with the promotion of seven staff across the firm’s Glasgow and London offices.

Matt Heaney has been promoted to project director in recognition of his contribution to the growth of the residential sector with a particular focus on later living opportunities.

Lorna Baird, John Burns, Steven Coulson, Joanne Hemming, Ruaridh Nicol, and Chris Wotherspoon have become associates. Holmes Miller said their ‘collective enthusiasm and expertise’ is driving the company’s net zero approach on civic, education and leisure projects.

Holmes Miller has been appointed to decarbonise Watford town hall and Colosseum, as well as design Scotland’s first Passivhaus-accredited swimming pool and leisure centre in Blairgowrie. The business is also working on a raft of Passivhaus and EnerPhit education projects across the UK.

Callum Houston, MD at Holmes Miller, said, “As someone who has personally grown up through the business it has always been important to me to cultivate and support young talent. These talented designers will help us cement our position as one of the UK’s leading sustainability-driven architecture practices, raising standards across the industry as we look ahead to a net zero future.”
