We are delighted to announce the promotion of four members of staff within the practice effective from February 2022.

Luke Ritchie is promoted to Associate and Arran Ewin to Technical Associate. Chris Williams becomes IT Manager and Andrew Beales becomes IT Technician.

Luke and Arran both join the management team after starting their careers with KSS over 10 years ago. They are now fundamental to our ongoing development of new architects after we welcomed four new Architectural Assistants this year.

Luke’s experience ranges from master planning to design and technical delivery. He has worked on a wide range of sports projects from sports training pavilions to Premier League stadia such as the award-winning Main Stand for Liverpool FC and more recently the Crystal Palace FC Academy.

Arran has over 14 years Revit experience, his current focus is on further improving design and delivery coordination and efficiencies through the introduction of standardised BIM workflows and the use of scripting to validate model geometry and data in line with ISO19650.

Working closely with Arran and the Technical team, Chris and Andrew are a key part of the smooth day-to-day running of our IT infrastructure which is an invaluable part of our practice, especially over the last two years. The technologies we had at our disposal allowed us to simplify operations, resulting in greater speed of co-ordinated work and more focus on providing the highest level of professional service for our clients.

All promotions have been made in recognition of the individuals’ achievements and significant contribution to the growth of KSS.
