LONG-ESTABLISHED architect practice David Murray Associates (DMA) is joining forces with Space Solutions, further strengthening its architectural division.

The merger will ensure continuity for DMA clients and ongoing projects, while bringing the added benefit of access to a broad range of services from within Space Solutions. A key part of the merger is that DMA senior architect and Associate, Neil Strachan will join SPACE as an Associate Director, alongside Steven Berry joining as an Architectural Technician. David Murray will continue as a consultant on existing DMA projects leading on legacy work and continuing to offer his expertise to the extended architectural team.

David Murray of DMA comments: “This is an exciting opportunity for the DMA guys and offers us the opportunity to work with a wider team, while maintaining high levels of service for our clients.  Neil will bring his well-developed design flair and a wealth of experience as project Architect on a wide range of projects. Steven will bring a particular technical expertise in coordinated construction information and detailing. They’ve had an effective working relationship for many years. I am also excited to work on a consultancy arrangement with the wider SPACE team and look forward to broadening the opportunities for our existing clients in particular.

“Joining forces with SPACE will allow me to contribute my expertise in construction contracts, specification, buildability and the integration of building services, structure and building fabric. It will also afford me additional time to spend on other interests including the development of sustainable, affordable housing and care facilities and working on my non-exec roles in a community energy company, a community trust and a care sector charity.”

In welcoming the DMA team, Steve Judge, founder and chair of Space Solutions, said: “David is a highly respected local architect, and we are thrilled to be welcoming the team into SPACE.  The new arrangement is a superb alignment of expertise, experience and resources which will hugely benefit our combined portfolio of clients.”
