Leicestershire Architects Announces Two New Appointments

Award-winning architects IMA Architects (IMA), based in Blaby, Leicester has welcomed two new team members. Tasawar Rahim joins the company as a Part 2 Architectural Assistant and Jessica Moody as an Architectural Assistant.

The two new appointments come as a result of consistent business growth and new contract wins, including a £6m project in Saudi Arabia and numerous projects with Clowes Developments, one of the UK’s largest privately owned property investment and development companies.

Originally from Bangladesh, Tasawar has previously worked in Iraq where he has worked on a range of small and large residential projects.  Tasawar has a Master of Architecture (March/RIBA Part 2) from the Manchester School of Architecture and a BA (Hons) Architecture (RIBA Part 1) from the Kent School of Architecture.

Speaking on the new role, Tasawar said:

“Having been exposed to different cultures and environments I’ve learnt how to produce diverse concepts – and this is something I hope to enhance further. At IMA, I will get the opportunity to work on projects that have different scales and typologies, and I can’t wait to get stuck in.”

A recent graduate, Jessica joins the team fresh out of University with a BSc (Hons) Architecture degree from the Welsh School of Architecture in Cardiff. She has also successfully completed the RIBA Future Architects Student Mentoring programme.

In their roles at IMA, Tasawar and Jessica will be responsible for the Design and Development of large-scale industrial projects as part of a wider team.

On joining the team, Jessica commented:

“I am really happy to be joining the IMA team and look forward to applying my new qualifications – and my curiosity – to the creation and development of architecture. And I look forward to embarking on new challenges with a reputable company.”

Ian McCann, IMA’s Managing Director, added:

“We are delighted to welcome Tasawar and Jessica to IMA, adding two new strings to the company’s bow and supporting new talent into the industry. Today, our team – which has grown by 66% in the last 24-months – has over 100 years’ experience in the industry and, with significant growth across all business areas, there are no plans to slow down.

“A strong and diverse staff base is key to our continued business success. We employ talented Architects, Designers and Technologists ranging from graduate staff to Chartered personnel, and we’re targeting a further 20% growth by 2024.”
