Kieran Kintrea and Francesca Basso are now Associate Partners of MAA

In 2018 we announced that Andrew Harris had become a Partner of Martin Ashley Architects in recognition of his extensive and outstanding work with the Firm.

We are now delighted to further announce that Kieran Kintrea and Francesca Basso have become Associate Partners of Martin Ashley Architects in recognition of their outstanding contributions to the Firm.

Kieran and Francesca’s skills greatly strengthen the senior team at a time when we are shaping the Practice towards the most effective and efficient ways possible of providing the best service to our clients in the altered circumstances of the post covid-19 emergency period. We are excited about changes that have already been made to the Practice and which will continue towards our goal of providing the highest standards of historic building conservation and project management on behalf of our client organisations.

Kieran Kintrea, BSc(Hons), MRICS is an immensely capable chartered surveyor who came to us from our client organisation at the Old Royal Naval College Greenwich, and for 4 years with MAA has acted as lead consultant, project manager and contract administrator on many of our significant projects for The Royal Household, and the Old Royal Naval College Greenwich, as well as for other valued clients. Kieran’s fast, flexible and communicative nature of working ensures the entire project and contract team is fully informed and collaborating effectively.

Francesca Basso, BArchSc(Hons), MArch, ARB is a highly competent conservation architect who after almost 9 years with MAA has worked as assistant, then project architect, and increasingly lead architect and contract administrator on our projects at Windsor Castle, Kew Palace, Hampton Court, Newark Castle, Temple Bar and St Bride’s Church for City of London Corporation, Merchant Taylors’ Hall, Alexandra Palace, Clifford’s Tower, Dockyard Church Sheerness, and Brewhouse Yard and Headmaster’s House at Eton College. Francesca enjoys working in close collaboration with specialist consultants, contractors, experts, and Statutory Authorities with the aim of providing the most beneficial (functionally and aesthetically) and best value outcome for the least impact to historic fabric.
