Holmes Miller has strengthened its senior team as it continues to grow with the promotion of seven staff across its Glasgow and London offices.

Matt Heaney has been promoted to project director in recognition of his contribution to the growth of the residential sector with a particular focus on Later Living opportunities across the UK and Ireland.

Lorna Baird, John Burns, Steven Coulson, Joanne Hemming, Ruaridh Nicol, and Chris Wotherspoon have become associates. Holmes Miller said their collective enthusiasm and expertise is driving the company’s net zero approach on major civic, education and leisure projects in line with its Sustainability Charter.

This commitment to environmentally sustainable ethical design and building practices has seen the firm appointed to decarbonise Watford town hall and Colosseum.

In addition, it is working on a raft of Passivhaus and EnerPhit education projects across the UK, including Scotland’s first Passivhaus-accredited swimming pool and leisure centre in Blairgowrie.

Callum Houston, managing director at Holmes Miller, said: “As someone who has personally grown up through the business it has always been important to me to cultivate and support young talent. These talented designers will help us cement our position as one of the UK’s leading sustainability-driven architecture practices, raising standards across the industry as we look ahead to a net zero future.”

Holmes Miller operates internationally with offices in Glasgow, London, and Guangzhou in China. The firm’s proven expertise in environmentally conscious and sustainable design has seen them deliver a significant portfolio of projects across the globe, including Huafa West Headquarters in Hengqin, China, the EKA Arena in Ahmedabad, India, and – closer to home – London South Bank Technical ‘STEAM’ College in Lambeth, as well as the highly anticipated Meadowbank sports complex in Edinburgh.
