Hamilton Architects, the multi-award winning practice behind the new £65m STEM facility for Canterbury Christ Church University, have appointed two new Partners. Senior Associate Graeme Ogle and Bid Manager Michelle Canning join Senior Partners Paul Millar and Mark Haslett, assuming Partnership responsibilities in addition to their current roles.

Paul Millar said: “Graeme and Michelle have impressed us with their talent, expertise and dedication – qualities which will be invaluable in helping to lead staff and engage with clients as we take the company to the next level.”

Hamilton, who employ a highly skilled multi-disciplinary team of 35 directors, architects, architectural assistants and technologists, are currently in recruitment mode thanks to a highly successful 12 months.

New contracts secured include Newry Theatre and Civic Hub; Marketplace Theatre, Armagh; Bird College, London; Institute of Technology, Tallaght; and conservation management planning for Binevenagh & Coastal Lowlands heritage sites.

The 18,000sqm STEM facility Canterbury Christ Church University is one of over 20 education contracts, including the new £29m South West College in Enniskillen, which are currently on their books.

Five Hamilton projects were finalists in the recent RICS Awards 2019 and won the Design through Innovation accolade for DAERA Headquarters at Ballykelly, designed by Senior Partner Mark Haslett.

Mark Haslett said: “It is fair to say that in recent decades Hamilton have designed or conserved some of the most important structures in Northern Ireland and beyond – everything from stadia and universities, to hospitals and museums.”

The practice was founded in the early 70s and moved to bespoke offices in Joy Street in 2011. In recent years, the business has been looking beyond the shores of Northern Ireland with an office in Broadgate, London, and projects in the south-east of England.
