A FIRM of architects said there is “light at the end of the tunnel” for the construction industry after taking on seven new staff in the past two months.
CSA Architects in Truro has now expanded to employ 19 people in total.
Justin Dodge, managing director, said: “I am thrilled to be in this position – employing more high-quality staff shows that there is light at the end of the tunnel for the Cornish construction industry.
“Architects are always at the forefront of the construction process, so our recent upturn bodes well for the whole of Cornwall’s construction industry.”
Four new architectural assistants have joined CSA – George Lewis and Lawrence Sly, who are both from Truro, Simon Bird, from St Austell, and Lynsey Smith, from Penryn.
To support the growing team, CSA has further strengthened its administrative team with the appointment of a full-time personal assistant, Sarah Rowe, and part-time accountant, Sharon Struminski, both from Truro.
The company has seen a 99 per cent success rate in converting planning applications to permissions over the past two years and is now building more schemes than ever before.
