Crone Architects has expanded its Melbourne team with the appointment of Nick Williams to principal of Design.
In his new role, Williams will lead the design process, from feasibility through town planning, design and delivery through to construction. His experience in complex mixed-use, commercial, retail and hospitality development will strategically strengthen Crone’s Melbourne team.
Greg Crone CEO and Chair says, “We are proud to welcome Nick to Crone and to our leadership team. His appointment brings significant experience to the Melbourne market to build on the success of our recent Melbourne projects, including the award-winning design of the Australian Nursing & Midwifery Federation Headquarters, a nurses training facility.”
Crone is currently working on projects in Melbourne including the former Brash’s & Carnegie Buildings adaptive re-use project in Elizabeth Street, a new mixed-use development in the inner south-east with a number more in the pipeline.
Nick says, “Crone has an impressive body of work built upon a foundation of history and experience. I’m excited to have joined a practice that celebrates this heritage while looking to the future championing innovation through creativity, sustainability and technology. I’m thrilled to be part of the Crone team and contribute to the built environment in Melbourne.”
Nick brings nearly 20 years of experience to the practice having held senior positions at Rothelowman, and Artisan Architects. In his previous roles, including over half a decade at Hayball, Nick provided leadership to project teams where he cemented his expertise in residential, mixed-use and commercial projects.
