Jones Melling appoints architectural technologist

Jones Melling, the Preston-based property and construction advisory firm, has appointed Shahid Khan as architectural technologist.

He will carry out measured surveys and produce planning and building regulation drawings for both residential and commercial projects. He is an accomplished designer with a broad experience in computer aided design (CAD) software programmes including AutoCAD, Revit, Google Sketchup and Lumion 3D.

Shahid will work alongside Jones Melling’s commercial and residential building surveying, quantity surveying and project management teams. His appointment brings the firm’s architecture and design team to five.

Gary Melling, co-founder and director of Jones Melling, said: "The firm has enjoyed a very strong start to 2021 and we have secured a number of new clients and projects from the healthcare, warehouse and distribution sectors. It’s great to see this manifest into the creation of another new job.

"Shahid is highly experienced, he really impressed us with his excellent knowledge of the construction sector, in particular on measured surveys, and has a wide range of technical skills. He has great enthusiasm to work in partnership with clients to deliver a first-class service."

Shahid joins Jones Melling from Adamson Construction & Interiors. Prior to that, he spent six years at A3 Architectural Services and four years as an architectural technician at ICA Architects. 

He said: "I am looking forward to meeting my new clients and working closely with them from taking the original brief to seeing the final delivery. This feels a great chance to develop my skills and knowledge while playing a part in delighting clients and shaping the built environment."
