Marie-Louise Dunk, a founder and director of JAMstudio, said: "We're delighted to welcome Calum on board.
Director Marie-Louise Dunk has also qualified as a chartered architect after years of dedication to the industry. She is now a chartered member of RIAS and the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA).
We would have no problem in commending KI to other specifiers â€" their professionalism and attitude are second to none.â€� Marie-Louise Dunk, Director, JAMstudio Ltd
In late September 2003 Marie-Louise Dunk moved 600miles from her life in London to launch JAMstudio in Aberdeen. Despite the unfamiliarity of the city and its architectural community, Marie-Louise took the challenge in her stride, establishing an enviable reputation for bespoke, original and refreshing architecture. Eleven years on, having survived a double-dip recession, she remains very much at the helm, passionately leading and training a talented team of ten as they endeavour to create amazing spaces. From inspirational corporate workplaces to one-off family homes, JAMstudio counts a wide range of clients amongst its portfolio, and reports a turnover approaching £450K. As well as managing the day-to-day running of the business, Marie-Louise handles many other responsibilities - pitching for and planning new work, overseeing the commercial and financial activities, and liaising with a multitude of contractors, all whilst dedicating the majority of her time to her staff. With a strong ethos for nurturing and encouraging the talent and architectural flair of the next generation, Marie-Louise takes on a strong mentorship role from the minute a new member of staff joins the business. Marie-Louise has often gone above and beyond to help in the local community. The transformation of Community Church in Peterhead is a prime example, where one of the largest halls in the area was refurbished by JAMstudio to provide a multi-function space along with a new kitchen facility. In order to carry out this work, Marie-Louise secured partial lottery funding for the hall, which is now used by many local community groups. In the wider community, Marie-Louise can often be found raising money for cancer research charities, having sadly lost many friends to the disease. She has raised almost £5k in the past 3 years.
Marie-Louise Dunk, Chartered Architect and Director at JAMstudio, comments, "We very much welcome Ruaridh to the team and know he will be a wonderful asset.
Having been based in Borneo for the last year, and working as part of a wider team on an eco resort, he will brings further skills and knowledge to our eco and green projects. Marie-Louise continues, "Ruaridh also has a wide range of experience from working on educational and residential listed building projects during his four year employment in Edinburgh.
JAMstudio director Marie-Louise Dunk, said: "Whilst our team has enjoyed the practice's rural setting, as time has progressed we have outgrown it both in terms of practical space, and in terms of visibility to our target market.
