shedkm annual meeting held over zoom

Following 11 weeks in lockdown, we all came together for our annual staff meeting via Zoom on 4th June.

Although project teams and studios meet regularly, to join the whole practice together to reflect on the past year and discuss our ‘one practice’ future was very exciting. With gin hampers delivered to each member of the 50+ team in advance of the meeting, we were all in the same popular bar by the end of the call (almost!). The past few months have enabled us to explore technology to a new level and keep the ethos and culture of the practice buoyant. It will certainly play a vital role in the future of our ‘one practice’ approach; strengthening the original concept of a single innovative architectural approach via two studios that can physically serve projects in different areas geographically.

We also announced the promotions of Darren Jones and James Griffiths to the position of Associate Director in our Liverpool and London studios respectively… plus the international presence of a new sister company in South Africa spearheaded by one of our original founders James Weston.
