A Newton Aycliffe-based architect has merged his company with a neighbouring firm in Darlington and created new jobs in the process.
Blackwell Architectural Services – run by Newtonian Jeff Blackwell (pictured above, left) – has joined forces with ADG Architects, which has been established in Darlington for more than 30 years.
Blackwell is now a partner at ADG and will work closely with partners John Bell and Paul Kelly.
At the same time, architect Malcolm Cundick has joined as an associate from his practice Alpha Plus: Architects, and Samantha Lowdon has also joined the firm as business development manager.
ADG provides a comprehensive service across a wide range of commercial, industrial, residential, interior design and 3D Modelling projects, with particular specialisms in education, care home, agricultural, historic and ecclesiastical buildings.
It works for a wide range of clients throughout England including 3M, Darlington Council, Glaxo Pharmaceuticals, Husquvarna, Lyons Tetley, Magnet, North Yorkshire CC, NSK Bearings, Redcar and Cleveland Council, Richmond School, Subsea Innovation, Volvo Trucks and Warburtons, among many others.
