GLM welcomes new team members to expanding practice

We are delighted to welcome Kristi Greer, Robert Hayes and Ruth Ostrowski to the GLM team. Kristi, Robert and Ruth bring a wealth of experience to our architecture, building surveying and administrative departments and have already hit the ground running.

Originally from Elgin, Kristi joins GLM from Anta Architecture where she worked with the highly talented Lachie Stewart.  She received her Master of Architecture degree from the University of Dundee where she focused on the opportunities and challenges which arise when working with existing and historic buildings. She particularly enjoys forming contextually responsive buildings utilising materials, crafts and interior components to complement the design. Kristi is currently assisting our architects on a number of domestic and commercial projects from a small domestic flat to several high end estates to a hotel conversion in the Highlands. Kristi has an impressive music collection so you will often find her at music festivals outside of the office.

Robert joins GLM fresh out of his studies at Edinburgh Napier where he earned his BSc (Hons) in building surveying. Robert is involved primarily in project work as well as dilapidation, pre-acquisition and measured surveys. Energetic and eager to immerse himself in new jobs, he regularly demonstrates the in-depth technical knowledge and understanding required across the breadth of the projects in the office. Robert has an eye for detail and was keen to join GLM due to our range of projects and design-orientated ethos. He particularly enjoys working in tandem with GLM’s architectural department and relishes any opportunity to get up on a roof. A beer enthusiast, Robert is currently experimenting with home brewing and has promised to bring samples to the GLM office when his next batch is ready.

Ruth joined GLM in July 2014 as a highly organised Administrative and Finance Associate. She recently graduated from the University of Strathclyde with a degree in economics and brings a strong background in secretarial and accounting procedures to GLM’s practice development team. As an added bonus, Ruth has always taken an interest in Edinburgh’s built heritage and is eager to learn more about the conservation of these important buildings through GLM’s expansive project portfolio. As the administrative hub of the practice, Ruth will often be the first port of call at the GLM office. In her spare time, she is an avid sailor and dancer. She is also working towards achieving her ACCA accreditation while under the tutelage of GLM’s finance department.
