Carter Jonas, the national property consultancy, has appointed Matthew Ellams, Partner, to the senior team of its Leeds-based Architecture & Building Consultancy.
Ellams joins from Kings College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust in London, where he was Head of Construction – responsible for the planning and management of all construction activities undertaken by the Trust, including the installation of a helipad on an existing 10-storey building.
Having worked in the field for over 20 years, Ellams is relocating from London to Leeds to develop the Architecture & Building Consultancy across the North. Operating across all sectors, the Consultancy offers a range of services, including specialist architectural services and building surveying, as well as cost consultancy and project management.
A high-calibre professional with a wealth of experience across the built environment sphere, Ellams is particularly adept at delivering projects in the healthcare and commercial sectors. He also has the added advantage of having previously worked in an international context – in Middle Eastern locations including the United Arab Emirates.
Ellams has complimented his vocational experience with academic rigor, having received an MBA in Construction & Real Estate from the University of Reading. In 2017, Ellams was awarded a Fellowship by the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors in recognition of his individual achievements.
Richard Love, Head of Architecture & Building Consultancy, Carter Jonas, said: “This is an exciting time for the Building Consultancy team and we’re proud to announce Matthew’s appointment and welcome him into the team. Matthew is well placed to take forward this section of the business, and drive its development in the northern region.”
Matthew Ellams, Partner, Carter Jonas, said: “I am excited to be returning to my roots – to the area in which I initially started my career in construction. Within the industry, the Consultancy has a reputation to be proud of, and I am up to the challenge of replicating this success and taking it to new places.”
