Interaction builds its team to 60 people as it continues to secure more work nationwide

July 3, 2024

Bath-based workplace design and build company Interaction has made a number of additional appointments along with a promotion after winning more design projects across the UK.

The firm, recently ranked among the top 50 most-inspiring workplaces in the UK and Ireland, has welcomed five new faces across its design and client support teams. 

It has also promoted Ben Woodgate from project lead to head of the newly created pre-construction team.

Joining Ben’s team as pre-construction manager is Carl Tilton, who has 15 years’ experience as a quantity surveyor with national construction company BAM, and Robert Pierce who arrives as a project administrator.

The team will be responsible for pricing projects and working closely with clients to ensure schemes are on track before handing over to Interaction’s contracts department.

Other new appointments are Ben Chislett, who joins as a project manager from office fit-out firm Resolution Interiors in Yeovil, where he held a similar position.

Interaction’s office design team has also welcomed Mirna Aodesh, who joins as a junior designer after gaining a master’s degree in interior architecture from the University of Westminster, and Jess Franklin, an undergraduate student at the University of the Arts London, who joins as a student intern.

Jess was the winner of Interaction’s six-week summer placement competition and will be working with the firm during her university holiday.  

Meanwhile Lily de Malpas-Player joins Interaction’s growing client care team as an administrator from The Friedkin Group in London, where she was an office manager.

This latest intake takes the total headcount at Interaction, which also appointed half a dozen new staff earlier this year, to 60.

Last month the privately owned firm, which launched in 1992, was ranked 37th in a league table of the UK and Ireland’s top workplaces compiled by Inspiring Workplaces Group.

Interaction managing director Dieter Wood, pictured, said: “I would like to welcome our latest new starters who join us on our mission to banish boring offices and create inspirational workspaces. 

“Their arrival represents a significant investment in our design and client care teams who play such a crucial role supporting our customers through the design process and beyond, ensuring they get the most out of their new workspace.”

Interaction’s recent projects have included international legal practice Osborne Clarke’s five-floor flexible office in central Bristol, pictured, a new workspace for global cloud-based finance software provider Xledger, also in Bristol, and GKN Aerospace’s Global Technology Centre in Filton.
