Fibre is delighted to reveal that we’re expanding and will be hiring a brand new member of staff over the next few weeks. This is in addition to taking on our latest recruit, Architectural Technology Assistant Jess, who began working at Fibre only a few months ago (read our blog about Jess here).

 

Thanks to Fibre’s ongoing success, our team is set to grow again as we are recruiting a new Architect or Architectural Technologist. This is following the successful progression of a number of projects to detailed design and construction stage, and therefore we felt it was the right time to make this exciting new addition to the team. As a practice, we’re looking forward to being able to provide our great service to even more clients with another new member of staff on board!

 

At Fibre, our work is very diverse. We provide high-quality design for both residential and commercial projects, so the search is on for someone who has a diverse skill set, with plenty of experience working in a variety of sectors. In order to maintain our impressive record of successful and deliverable planning approvals, we’re also looking for someone with a good knowledge of building regulations and construction detailing and specifications. Take a look at the exciting range of both commercial and residential projects we have reaching completion in the next year in our blog here.

 

Our Managing Director Martin said about the new recruitment drive: “We’re so excited to be in a position to be hiring yet another member of staff, after hiring Jess recently too. The growth that Fibre has seen over the last few years has been phenomenal and we couldn’t be happier! We can’t wait to welcome another member of staff to the Fibre team.”

 

Here at Fibre Architects, we take a lot of consideration into our decisions about hiring new staff, as a high level of customer satisfaction and the great relationships we make with our clients are one of our most important priorities as a company. We’re confident we’ll find the right person to help us achieve our ambitious goals for the future and continue providing the best possible service for all our clients.

At Fibre Architects, we’re confident in our ability to secure planning approvals across a variety of different types of residential project. We’ve got a number of exciting projects that have successfully received planning approval that will be built this year. We’ve chosen three of our favourites to make our top three planning approved projects due for completion in 2017:

architect fibre

Stanley Road, Liverpool

Fibre worked closely with property developer New Regen Ltd to design a proposal for 30 new-build houses. Our design team worked hard to create high-quality homes that were both affordable and cost effective, using clever design techniques in order to maximise living space and keep construction costs down.

The homes were a hit with both the local authority and potential buyers. Our proposals were deemed “excellent” by the Liverpool City Council Planning Committee and over half of the properties have sold already despite being several months from completion. The projects should be completed just before the end of this year and we can’t wait to see the finished product!

Listed Building extension, Quarmby

Following the successful implementation of a modern garden room in the grounds of the Grade 2 Listed house in 2014, Fibre successfully obtained Planning Approval for a modern “glass-box” style extension to the house in 2015.  This private client has decided to build out this exciting addition to the property this year, with construction work starting in April.

The new extension will bring abundant natural light and more much-needed family space into the heart of this impressive Georgian home.

Extension in Scholes, Holmfirth

It’s not only old buildings that can benefit from a modern and exciting extension and remodelling project. Traditional, more recent house-builder type dwellings can also benefit from a fresh approach and this is exactly what Fibre designed for another private client for a property in Scholes, Holmfirth.

Planning approval was granted last year for a predominantly timber clad rear extension with large areas of sliding folding glass doors at ground floor opening up the remodelled house to an improved garden terrace area, including a brand new external pizza oven! Construction work has just started on site for this project, with an eagerly awaited completion due in around 4 months’ time.
