HASSELL launches Cardiff studio
The new HASSELL studio in Cardiff – our second in the United Kingdom – is officially open for business.
Colin Hockley, HASSELL Managing Principal in the UK, hosted a launch event at the new studio in the centre of Cardiff, attended by local civic, community and business leaders. Colin was joined by the Chair of our International Executive, Ken Maher, and the Head of Architecture and London Studio Leader, Tony Grist, in officially declaring the studio open.
Speaking at the launch, Ken Maher said HASSELL saw the establishment of the Cardiff studio as a critical step in fulfilling its international aspirations.
"As we have expanded and matured as a practice, it has become evident that having talented people in the UK is critical to realising our international opportunities and being global in reach yet knowledgeable of and responsive to local nuances," he said.
The new Cardiff studio is led by Colin, a former Managing Director of the UK architectural practice Nightingale Associates and Kieren Morgan, Global Health Leader for HASSELL. Kieren is a former Health Development Director at Nightingale. Colin and Kieren are already working with the other 13 HASSELL studios around the world to further strengthen our healthcare design practice.
