Renowned UK architecture firm Grimshaw, headed by Sir Nicholas Grimshaw, is establishing a permanent foothold in the Qatari market with the opening of an office in Doha.
The office will also become the operational centre for four new partners – Neil McClements, Juan Porral, Declan McCafferty and Andrew Thomas.
According to a statement from the company, “all four moves are rooted in the optimism and conviction of the practice as it builds upon its reputation for inventive, innovative architecture across all building sectors and across the globe”.
Further recent promotions include Keith Brewis as managing partner for international operations and Mark Middleton as a managing partner in London.
Established in 1980, some of Grimshaw’s projects include the Melbourne Metro, Incheon Airport in South Korea (pictured) and The Eden Project in Cornwall, UK.
