Grimshaw Architects outline expansion plans
Practice opens office in Doha, Qatar
Grimshaw Architects has outlined an expansion plan including the opening of a new office in Doha, Qatar.
The practice, led by 2012 Stirling Prize judge Nick Grimshaw, is working on the new headquarters for the Qatar Civil Aviation Authority and said it would use the new base to secure further work in the Middle East.
In a statement Grimshaw added that it has moved to new offices in New York, Melbourne and Sydney to accommodate its growing workload.
Meanwhile, the partnership at the practice has expanded to 18 people with the addition of Declan McCafferty, Neill McClements and Andrew Thomas in London, and Juan Porral who will oversee work in Doha.
Mark Middleton has been appointed managing partner of the London office and Keith Brewis, previously managing partner for Grimshaw’s Melbourne and Sydney offices, has been appointed managing partner of international operations.
