Through the partnership, Marley will support the BAA at a number of events over the next 12 months, working alongside the region’s architects and continuing to develop relationships within the architectural community.
The first key event, Women in Architecture, is being held on 7 March, showcasing female talent from local universities, as well as West Midland architectural practices, and highlight those who have contributed to the region’s built environment. The day will also spotlight design projects from across the area which have been spearheaded by women architects.
Jonathan Shum, Specification Manager at Marley, comments: “We are looking forward to an exciting year ahead with our partnership with the BAA. The BAA is a forward-thinking organisation and its willingness to get behind important industry subjects, such as diversity, through events like Women in Architecture is important, and will be strongly supported by us.
“Marley has long-established relationships with architectural professionals as we work together to promote roofing best practice and design excellence. This agreement will allow us to further engage with architects so we can better understand the issues they face and share our expertise and support.”
