August So Far

We have a number of new projects in the pipeline including a major mixed-use refurbishment in Leicester and a 22-acre site in a Nottinghamshire conservation area.

Our 173-bedroom apartment scheme has been submitted for pre-planning so we are awaiting the planners' comments. Permission has now been granted for a new high school changing block, which we are very happy about, and the Grove Park site is also reaching its final stages of interior fixtures and fittings.

Interviews for our architectural technician vacancy are in progress; we're very much looking forward to welcoming a new crew member on board the SKM ship. More updates soon!

Corporate Outing

The team finished off a busy and hectic week with a trip to the go-karting centre just outside Loughborough. This corporate outing also marked the first anniversary of SKM Architects' move to De Montfort Mews.

Sanjay Mistry clocked the fastest lap time (as usual) and interior designer Sarju, a first time go-karter, was unfortunately disqualified early on for reckless driving. Many excuses were given by various drivers for slow lap times and kart malfunctions but ultimately a highly enjoyable evening was had by all.
