Since celebrating its 25th anniversary last year, the last 12 months has seen GLA win a number of new commissions in a range of sectors.

Planning permission was gained for a new art block and associated improvement works at Guildford County School with completion for the first phase in autumn 2014.

Other local projects include refurbishment works for schools which are due to be completed over the summer holidays, together with planning success for residential and master planning schemes.

Mark Chambers joined GLA in 2004 as senior architectural technician; he is currently working on the redevelopment of an industrial unit in Clapham to a children’s nursery along with a number of projects for residential clients and developers in and around Guildford.

He was also responsible for the recently completed Highpoint contemporary residential scheme in Nightingale Road, Guildford.

Laura Caines joined the practice in 2009 and qualified as an architect later that year. She is currently working on a large public boys’ school in south Oxfordshire and a number of local education and residential projects. Laura has also been recently elected as chairman of the RIBA Surrey.

Its Surrey (east and west) branch which seeks to champion better buildings, communities and the environment through architecture. She is enthusiastic about education and helps to lead a successful work experience programme in the practice for local students wishing to discover more about architecture.

GLA director Richard Wilkinson said: “As the company enters a new period of growth, it is essential that we have a strong, dedicated team to support the specialist areas of advice that we offer to our clients. The new associate directors will play a key role in achieving these aims.”
