Have your say

An award-winning Sheffield architectural design firm has launched a new division.

Coda Structures, based at Kelham Island, has been set up by Coda Studios to deal specifically with structural engineering issues, and will assist in delivering Coda’s range of projects across the country.

Coda Studios was set up in 2003 by David Cross and Mark Hobbs, ‘with the simple aim of delivering great architecture to all projects big and small in a fun and enjoyable environment.’

The firm’s new division will be headed up by 30-year-old Henry Freeman, who is joining Coda after several years working with big firms including Capita, Curtins and Clugston Constructions.

Coda managing director David Cross said: “Our decision to launch Coda Structures follows the enormous success of our Coda Planning division, headed by Adam Murray.

“Like Adam, Henry is a young and dynamic personality who understands what a company like Coda is all about and will add great value to our clients with his wealth of experience and enthusiasm.

“His appointment comes at a time when, with firmly established presences in Sheffield and Leeds, we are now looking forward to opening our new offices in Manchester towards the end of the summer.”
