Architect on the move


A firm of architects has relocated from Penryn to Cornwall’s “commercial capital” amid predictions of strong growth for the city of Truro.

CAD Architects has taken up residence in Courtleigh House on Lemon Street. And MD, Mark Dawes, said: “We believe the economy is starting to pick up.


“As the commercial capital of Cornwall, Truro is the ideal place to relocate our practice.

“We have been closely watching the city’s developments and believe Truro has great potential for further growth over the next 20 years.”

The firm has five directors – Mark Dawes, Roger Hocking, Ross Edwards, Peter Bayly and Steve Hooper – and employs six staff. Prior to the move to Truro, CAD was based in Penryn since 2001.

CAD Architects is behind prominent architectural projects such as Lemon Street Market and conservation work with the Hall for Cornwall.
