Warren and Mahoney has announced changes to the leadership of its Christchurch studio with the appointment of Jonathan Coote as Studio Principal.
This change follows the announcement that Graeme Finlay, the current Christchurch studio Principal, will take over as Chairman of Warren and Mahoney Limited.
“As we look beyond the rebuild to the next era, we are delighted to have Jono leading our established Christchurch Principal team,” says John Coop, Managing Director of Warren and Mahoney.
“Jono’s creative energy, combined with his practical experience in the design and delivery of major projects, puts him in a good position to lead our Christchurch Studio,” says Coop.
Jonathan Coote was brought up and educated in Christchurch, and after working on large-scale and boutique projects in the UK and Caribbean, joined Warren and Mahoney’s Christchurch studio in 2010.
Since joining Warren and Mahoney, Jonathan has become a key member of the design team and has been involved in a wide range of architectural and interior projects of varying scales.
Most recently, Jonathan has played an integral role in significant projects in Christchurch such as Lincoln University’s Ag Research Joint Facility, the PwC Centre, the recently announced masterplan scheme for Rolleston Town Centre, as well as Warren and Mahoney’s own studio in Christchurch.
Jonthan Coote says that he looks forward to the challenge of leading the Christchurch studio in post-earthquake environment.
“I joined Warren and Mahoney at a time of significant change and growth. With the key pieces of the Christchurch Blueprint now in place, the opportunity for this studio is to continue to bring the skills we have developed through the rebuild to bear on future work in the city and regional centres that are in a growth phase,” says Coote.
