Acres Architects boosted by two new starters


Acres Architects are pleased to announce that the team at Acres Architects is growing due to a sustained increase in workload and progression of existing projects.

Based at the Nottingham office there are not one but two new additions to the team Alicia Hollis and Jamie Shanahan.

Alicia Hollis joins as an Interior Designer and will be responsible for driving forward further growth in the commercial residential sector. She will work closely with our existing business clients to help them by providing outstanding interior designs to create the wow factor that will appeal to their customers.

Over the next few months Alicia will pick up existing projects and complete the interior design aspect of our current BTR, PBSA and Open Market projects.

Alicia joins us from Source 8 and has lots of experience in delivering outstanding projects across the large scale residential sector having spent four years working in a number of architects practices as well as time working freelance.

Alicia’s special skill is painting and free-hand sketching. She paints live at weddings and events and last year she was commissioned to paint live at an event at St Paul’s Cathedral in London.

Jamie Shanahan joins us in a newly created role of Contracts Manager. Jamie will lead the development of new business and manage the building projects that we’re involved in. Jamie has vast experience in managing large scale residential projects having spent over 25 years working all over the country as a freelance contracts manager. Jamie said: “I’m delighted to have joined Acres Architects. I know it will give me the chance to get involved with some amazing projects in the East Midlands area and I’m looking forward to getting stuck into it”

Founder and Managing Director Edward Acres commented “I’m really pleased to see Alicia and Jamie join our team. As the business continues to grow and as we take on more and more clients and exciting projects we need additional team members to ensure we continue to deliver the best possible service”
