EKV Confirm Three New Staff & Announce Opening of Sheffield Office

In News

EKV Design have confirmed three staff appointments to their growing team, in addition to announcing the opening of a new office in Sheffield.

Lucy Giles was the first arrival in late summer as Office Administrator, on an apprenticeship in Business Administration supported by the East Midlands Chamber. Cat Wilson, who started as Junior Interior Designer in October 2017 and Jess Moore’s November start as Architectural Technologist will complete the triumvirate.

Jason Etienne, an Associate at EKV, said: “We have gone through an extensive recruitment process over the summer months, looking carefully at adding to the team’s existing skills and further developing our multi-disciplinary offering. We are delighted to welcome Lucy, Cat and Jess, who join us at an exciting time as we open our Sheffield office”.

EKV have taken space at Sheffield Innovation Centre as they look to expand their presence in South Yorkshire. The serviced offices are owned and managed by the regeneration specialist UK Steel Enterprise and are located close to the city centre and the University of Sheffield. The move brings EKV’s Managing Director, Jonathan Naden, back to the city where he completed his degree over 15 years ago before returning to Derby to establish the business in 2006.

Jonathan commented: “We have recently successfully completed a couple of schemes in the Sheffield area and when we began looking at possible locations for a new office, the Innovation Centre stood out as by far the best option. It also brings me full circle to where I went to university.”

The additions to EKV’s team and the decision to open a new office conclude an exciting couple of months for the business, which started in August when Jonathan was confirmed as having been made a Fellow of the Chartered Association of Building Engineers (CABE). The Chartered Fellow membership grade is the most senior offered by the Association and recognises “a Member’s knowledge, expertise, experience and their position within the industry”.
