Cundall boosts workplace sector leadership with new hire

Global, multi-disciplinary engineering consultancy, Cundall, has appointed Frances Brown as newest Partner and London workplace sector lead.

Brown, who brings significant experience delivering workplace projects, joins the practice following 17 years at Hoare Lea, where she led the London workplace sector team and specialised in the design of exceptional workplaces that integrated sustainable design. As a member of the British Council for Offices (BCO) research committee, she actively contributes to industry discussion and research on workplace design in the UK, and mentors others in the industry as part of the BCO’s mentoring programme.

In her new role, Brown will be responsible for the leadership and continued growth of Cundall’s London workplace sector, helping the practice to deliver on its Zero Carbon Design 2030 commitment to design for a more sustainable built environment.

Speaking about her new role, Brown said: “This is a great opportunity to join a new team and really make an impact in the workplace sector. Cundall’s focus on sustainable design reflects my own passion in this area. I’m excited to be part of the journey and help them achieve their ambition to have every project be net zero carbon enabled and align with science-based targets.

“The workplace sector in London is changing rapidly as we look to decarbonise and not only retrofit existing assets, but also reach beyond traditional workplace design to deliver spaces that prioritise wellbeing and meet the demands of a flexible workforce.”

Kevin Hayes, London Managing Partner, said: “We are so pleased that Frances has joined the practice as a member of the leadership team. Her commitment to the industry, passion for mentoring those in early careers, and advocacy for low energy buildings and all things associated with low carbon design, align nicely with the values we have at Cundall. 

“Frances’s proven track record for delivering prestigious projects across the London market and her connection to key players will be a great asset to Cundall as we look forward to supporting her as she brings a progressive dimension to this new role.”
