Alastair Wake, Deborah McLean and Jack Farrell FCH

New wins and trio of promotions at FCH

Architects Falconer Chester Hall have made three promotions as the firm strengthens its team following a string of new instructions.

The 80-strong practice, which has offices in Liverpool, Manchester and London, was recently appointed to deliver a series of high profile hotel and residential schemes in the North West, Bristol and central London for clients The Other House, Fragrance Group and Watkin Jones.

The promotions straddle the firm’s Liverpool and Manchester offices and are:

  • Alastair Wake – promoted from Senior Architect to Associate – Liverpool
  • Deborah McLean – promoted from Senior Architect to Associate – Manchester
  • Jack Farrell – promoted from Architect to Senior Architect – Liverpool

“For each of the 25 years that we have been in business we have promoted from within and that will remain key to our people philosophy,” explains director Alastair Shepherd.  “One of the reasons for our growth is the strong DNA that underpins how we work and how we serve our clients.  Promoting staff is a great way of recognising not just personal achievement and progression, but also further embedding our pro-active, forward thinking culture.  I’m delighted for Alastair, Deborah and Jack, each of whom has worked incredibly hard and with great skill.”

FCH is one of only three north west-headquartered firms to make the coveted AJ 100 rankings of the country’s top architecture practices.  The practice specialises in hotel, residential and commercial developments, with other current clients including Fragrance Group, Unite Students, Peel, Moda Living, Legacie and ForViva.
