Aberdeen architecture firm nets £750,000 worth of contract wins during challenging year
Aberdeen-based Tinto Architecture is celebrating 40 new project wins this year, totalling more than £750,000, and has strengthened its team with five new recruits.
The practice has secured projects in Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh, Glasgow, as well as a growing presence in the South East of England across both commercial and residential.
During the past seven months, the company has redesigned its senior team, welcoming Wendy Gray as business lead and Richard Slater as design and delivery lead, added a senior architectural technician, architectural assistant, architectural technologist, and a sales and marketing assistant to the team to service this growth and further enhance their diversity of skills and experience.
Over what has been a challenging past few months for most, the firm used this time to take stock and plan for the future direction of the business.
Nina Cradock, interior architectural designer at Tinto, said: “It’s been really exciting to see an increase in people getting in touch for both residential and commercial designs, which has been keeping us busy.
“We have carried out many virtual consultations to connect with our clients, who have spent months in lockdown wondering how they could improve the space around them. The last few months has also provided us with a fantastic opportunity to reflect on our own business and as part of that, finalise the rebrand of Tinto and a new website which has gone live today.”
Wendy Gray, business lead, added: “To realise our big ambitions for Tinto we have spent a great deal of time considering every part of our business. Having a driven and skilled team, led by creativity in place is a non-negotiable to achieve the best end-result for our clients, so we’re delighted to welcome our new starts and have them onboard for this exciting next phase.”
