Interaction further strengthens team with another raft of appointments


Bath-based workplace design and build company Interaction has announced additional appointments and a promotion following more design project wins across the UK.

The firm, which was 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.

The firm has also promoted Ben Woodgate from project lead to head of Interaction’s 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 construction company BAM. Colleague Robert Pierce also joins the pre-construction team as a project administrator.

The new team will be responsible for pricing projects, working closely with clients and ensuring schemes are on track before handing over to the contracts department.

Other new appointments include Ben Chislett who joins Interaction as a project manager from office fitout firm Resolution Interiors in Yeovil, where he held a similar position.

Interaction’s office design team has also welcomed new faces. They include Mirna Aodesh, who joins the firm 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 of new starters takes the total headcount at Interaction, which also welcomed half a dozen new staff earlier this year, to 60. Last month Interaction was ranked 37th in a league table of the UK and Ireland’s top workplaces compiled by Inspiring Workplaces Group.

Interaction’s Dieter Wood 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.”
