Katie Forrest

Leading architecture practice GT3 Architects has appointed Katie Forrest as head of marketing as it continues to invest in driving the business forwards.

Katie, who has more than eight years’ experience working in the property industry, will be based in the firm’s Newcastle office and will be responsible for driving the company’s strategic growth and outreach programmes.

Katie said: “I’m thrilled to be joining GT3. The team has a fantastic reputation and its exceptional portfolio of people and community focused projects speaks for itself.

“GT3’s ongoing commitment to social research and its ethos of placing people at the heart of every design is extremely refreshing. It will be crucial as the industry navigates the next few years of placemaking and project design, so I’m looking forward to supporting future growth and working on some exciting new projects.”

Katie has worked in London since 2012, heading up marketing teams within multi-disciplinary construction consultancy Stace LLP and home technology designers, Inspired Dwellings. She sat on CEDIA’s EMEA Board of Marketing and has been involved in some of the capital’s most exciting regeneration projects.

She added: “Having lived in London for a number of years I’m also looking forward to relocating back to the North East and my hometown of Whitley Bay. It’s an interesting time, particularly with the background of potential social changes across the country – I’m therefore eager to be re-introduced to the North East and Midland’s business circles and see what the future holds.”

Simon Dunstan, director at GT3 Architects, said: “We’re delighted to welcome Katie to the team. She has extensive experience within the property and construction industry, which will be a great asset as we take the next steps into a post-lockdown world.

“We are continuing to grow our portfolio of projects and champion an inclusive, sustainable and engaging way of doing business that positions people at the heart of every project. Katie’s appointment will therefore help to amplify this aim and push the business forwards.”
