HLM Architects has appointed Dan Brown as its new associate, head of Modern Methods of Construction (MMC) delivery
Dan Brown is a registered member of The Royal Institute of the Architects of Ireland, a chartered member of the Royal Institute of British Architects, fellow of the Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce.
Brown joins the practice with more than 20 years of experience in the architectural field, with previous roles including design team lead, offsite solutions at Elliott; senior associate at DarntonB3; and associate at Hadfield Cawkwell Davidson Ltd.
He will lead HLM Architect’s offer in the MMC marketplace, providing advice and support to existing and new clients on the delivery of MMC projects.
Brown will be working closely with the practice’s design, technical and digital directors to finetune their strategic approach to MMC delivery.
Digital delivery across the sector
Philip Watson, head of design at HLM Architects, said: “Dan’s appointment will help drive our ongoing integration and implementation of MMC and digital delivery across all studios and sectors.
“This activity is likely to be particularly important in addressing emerging updates to legislative frameworks such as new building regulations. His expertise is a welcome addition to the team.”
Dan Brown added: “I’m looking forward to joining a practice that has committed itself to ‘Think: Off-site First’ and understands the benefits that MMC and technology can bring to projects in terms of quality, time, budget, environmental sustainability, and health and safety.
“It is great to be part of a team dedicated to designing creative, bespoke buildings that sustainably address user needs and client requirements while using common and repeatable components.”
