Anthony Mulraney has been appointed as director of the Hive Group‘s new Oxford office, specialising in education, heritage and commercial projects
Anthony Mulraney is the latest name to join Hive Group’s team. The company has established a new Oxford office to deliver projects across the education, commercial and heritage sectors.
Anthony Mulraney’s team will drive Passivhaus principles
Anthony will work with Hive’s London and Cambridge teams to target specific frameworks across Oxford, where universities are increasingly seeking to achieve net zero ambitions. The Oxford office will also handle residential and hospitality developments.
Anthony Mulraney is already familiar with Oxford’s construction scene
Anthony joins the group from Qoda, where he led the Oxford office and managed a team of 15 delivering projects up to £30m. Before this, Anthony developed his skills as a mechanical engineer at Sweco to deliver landmark schemes such as Bloomberg and Coal Drops Yard.
Anthony aims to build a team of M&E experts in Oxford who are driven by sustainable innovation and want to support the preservation and transformation of the city’s heritage and listed buildings. He will also prioritise building collaborative relationships with local partners, such as the city’s architects and project managers.
Continuing Hive Group’s delivery of Passivhaus principles
The Oxford office will work closely with Hive’s Belfast branch and director Aaron McCarthy, an accredited Passivhaus designer, to meet Oxford University’s desire to employ Passivhaus principles in higher-value assets.
Andy Burbridge, Hive Group managing director, said: “The universities across the Oxford-Cambridge-London triangle are setting ambitious targets to achieve net zero and with Anthony on the ground our team has a broad view of what needs to be done.
“Anthony’s skills as an engineer, knowledge of the city and region and connections to established organisations and individuals makes him integral to what we want to achieve as a business within the education sector, and beyond. His collaborative approach and ambition to grow a team of smart, proactive people with a commitment to sustainable engineering will make him a valued member of our team.”
Bringing long lasting sustainability to Oxford’s assets
Anthony Mulraney, Hive Group director said: “Oxford is a microcosm of extremely talented architects and PMs and I’m looking forward to introducing those I know to Hive Group, who have the type of skills that and mindset that will be of huge benefit to Oxford’s built-environment.
“The team is ambitious, and this is founded on the desire to work with people in partnership to deliver important and long-lasting sustainability to the city’s assets. Their energy to truly contribute to society matches my own and I’m excited by the prospect of building a team that feels the same, to tackle the effects of climate change through our expertise.”
Hive’s new office is located in Bee House at MEPC’s Milton Park, one of Anthony’s projects with his former company.
